So right at the end - yes, as I say, he got a bit sloppy and careless.
Kendrick earlier on was all over the second serve, hitting outrageous clean winners and I think Murray was a bit wary of how and where to serve - he wanted to get a lot of firsts in but knew they had to be reasonably good.
Nobody has attacked the Murray second serve like that all summer - somewhat bizarrely, when you think about it - he's offered SO many of them to be hit against various players but only Robert Kendrick wanted to step up and bat it away.
