Re: Peak Murray

Tokyo 2011 was obscene. Nadal won 4 points in that last set!

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Very encouraging to see after all those times he wasted match points late last year. The way he saved that MP against Ferrer makes that whole crapfest of a match a blessing in disguise. If he can keep it up and combine it with more offense and big serving, he will be mighty tough to beat for anyone.
Maybe he actually hasn't peaked yet

Re: Peak Murray

When Mandy did something that was deemed impossible at the time: beat tired, injured GOAT on his worst surface in 2008 USO semi.

Re: Peak Murray

Some good matches already mentioned, but I'd like to put in a word for Wimbledon 2011 SF, where he was leading 5-7 1*-2 15-30 against Nadal before missing that sitter for 15-40, and then completely imploding mentally.

Yes probably this, outrageous stuff from muzza last two sets. nothing dull could do except watch and admire this demolition. Shanghai 2010 and Rome 2011 as already mentioned are good shouts also.

Re: Peak Murray

Murray played a very goood match on clay against Gasquet last year in the FO during the last three sets after faking injury in the first (don't get his behaviour last year during the tournament, it maid him a bad image in the french medias I believe).
