Queens R1: Andy Murray def. Nicolas Mahut 7-6(8) 7-6(1)

Down a break in both sets, good work for Andy to get this done in 2 against a guy who's had an extra week on the grass and is always tricky on this surface.

Murray turned up for the tiebreaks. Mahut was better everywhere else.

Good high quality match from both players, Mahut on grass is a nightmare R1 opponent so just happy Murray's through.

Good start.

Murray is like one of those embarrassing uncles for many reason but none more so than the rehearsed, cringe worthy "let's go".

Murray sounds bad enough as is, without trying to act American.

Well let's go is the more PC version of the Scottish "FKING GET IN THERE"

This. Except some shots selection.
I thought it was crazy of Mahut to come in on that return when he was up 40-15 2 sps in the 2nd set on Murrays serve.

A complaint in every match this Murray.

Re: Queens R1: Andy Murray def. Nicolas Mahut 7-6(8) 7-6(1)

Nico was better player today and choked both sets away. But it's even good for him, because he will have more time to rest before Wimbledon.

Murray grass streak will start here and end in Wimbledon final as usual this season.

Support:

Offensive baseliners: Klizan, Bellucci, Thiem, Gulbis, Djokovic, Wawrinka, Del Potro

Players with great touch and others: Mahut, Federer, Mannarino, Bollelli, Goffin, Bautista-Agut, Sousa

Murray upped his level when necessary.

He was understandably a bit tentative but that's a good win. Murray's tiebreak record recently has been outstanding.

Re: Queens R1: Andy Murray def. Nicolas Mahut 7-6(8) 7-6(1)

Mahut was always going to be tricky and Murray had minimal time on grass in the lead up to this unlike Mahut, so was good for Andy to get through this one. I agree that Murray just played better when it counted in the tie breaks. But that's what makes him the better player. Mahut was up 5-2 in the second and 40-15 up as far as I remember, then double-faulted twice (or what is before that??). In any case, he gave Murray the chance to get back into it.

Re: Queens R1: Andy Murray def. Nicolas Mahut 7-6(8) 7-6(1)

Murray should be in Now You See It 2 because that again seem to be another escape act. Mahut was up a break in both Sets but was not able to finish it where it matters most. It is interesting to see that his doubles experience hasn't been fully helping him be solidly confident just yet in singles. Still good week(?, I mean the final was in Sunday ) for him and I hope he goes deep in Wimbledon because it feels criminal he hasn't.

Murray escaping another tight early round match.
Expecting him to win Queen's this year, so not a surprise.

Murray served great, loads of aces and first serve back up to 70%-ish (*cough*like it was before that ill-timed holiday a few Sundays ago*cough*).

Didn't notice much difference in his attitude as some were expecting with Lendl being courtside, at least no absence of cussing and bickering with the umpire. He did respond really well in the pressure situations though, saving set points and forcing the break back when Mahut was serving for set 2.
