Jiri Novak defeats Andy Murray 6-3 7-6 (1)

Well done cheery Jiri, good win for the veteran.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

RIP TENNIS JUNE 7, 2009

Yep these slow starts are killing andy especially with that 1st serve %

At least he bothered to start playing in the second set which he had good chance in but I think we are still a year off consistency with him

Jiri was being kind, he should have finished him off earlier.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Looks like Murray really wants to focus on his doubles now....
I was looking forward to the rematch, too.

i guess your right - Not wise but I think understandable considering he is spending a couple of weeks with his brother who he doesnt get to see much

Novak is a very good player and has done well here before though so dont want to take credit from him

I think seeded players often do not benefit from the Bye into the second round.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 19 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 26 Master Series.
Nadal 15 GS, 30 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 12 GS, 5 Year End Masters, 30 Master Series.

I agree...especially where they face the better opposition that wins through from R1.

Andy! Not a surprise that he lost, but he needs to start winning again
