Re: Doha Final: [2]Novak Djokovic def. [1]Andy Murray 6-3 5-7 6-4

Very important win for Nole giving him mental edge over Murray before AO.

But there is still a chaos in Djokovic game, he was great from baseline, but smashes and net play was hideous. He has a lot of things to improve in his tennis.

Murray has become great athlete, his defence skills are incredible. Running left, right, left right all the time and wasn't much tired than Djokovic after this match.

Support:

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

Players with great touch and others: Federer, Mahut, Goffin, Gombos, Mannarino, Bollelli, Bautista-Agut, M. Zverev

Well done Novak.... title number 67 is his.


Murray is no doubt cursing Verdasco's ineptness at not converting his matchpoints the previous day otherwise he'd most likely have 6 titles on the bounce now and 29 matches won in a row.

Not that disappointed. Great, tightly contested match that could've gone either way and I was delighted at the mental strength showed by Andy in that second set.

If in that situation (set and a break down) previously in this match up, Andy's losing in straights guaranteed but not this time. Very encouraging and definitely bodes well for Australia.

Also LOL at that only being a 250 final. Surely the highest quality one ever?

When Djokovic is on, Murray can only hope for a good loss. However, Djokovic does not always retain this level and this is where Murray's chance will come.

Murray went from an incredibly good level in the final stages of the second set, to playing fairly poorly for a good part of the third. he was up 0-30 on Novak's serve in the final game and then dumped two very standard shots right into the net in a row. ugh.

There's obviously no doubt that Djokovic is incredibly clutch though. Although I will say that I think Novak in general just plays at an EXTREMELY solid level. He doesn't really hit that incredibly for the majority of the time. There are moments here and there where he's painting some lines with his defensive shots well, but he just does such a good job at sort of coasting and not missing. Which is obviously frustrating when he seems to be sorting of getting outplayed but just keeping the errors down

both had good moments but they were really up and down, far from what you would consider a clean match (I think Murray hit 4 DFs and Djokovic 2 or 3)

Entertaining match with lots of ups and downs and an epic championship point . Both show promising form for the upcoming AO.

Murray should have never lost this match after that epic turnaround in the 2nd. Djokovic looked mentally destroyed in the first part of the decider and this is where Murray should have broken him.

Eurosport switched right to football after the championship point, very disappointing after such a great battle .

Re: Doha Final: [2]Novak Djokovic def. [1]Andy Murray 6-3 5-7 6-4

BTW, I think this result is pretty good for both guys, Djokovic of course can get his mojo back and confidence before AO; Murray should also be less pressured in AO now that his winning streak has ended and Djokovic's back to being a big favorite.

Enjoy every moment of tennis. Enjoy the rise of the young, the brilliance of the peak, and the passion of the old. Enjoy dominance, enjoy diversity.

Fight. Drama. Shots. Epic matches, fun stats, tennis!

Great match, Nole's back that's for sure. His choking was still off the charts, but can't complain about the additional set plus the drama.
