Great job Murray - getting better every match this week. That was a very nice dismantling.

Didn't conceive serve

At least he should have retained some energy for the SF...

Still can't get that first serve percentage above 50 though yet that's two matches in a row where he's not been broken.

Andy Murray - serving machine.

Well done, Andy - now up your game a little more and beat Roddick again.

Court is playing slightly slower than last week I think (at least that's what I've read). In which case, Roddick got his best shot at beating Andy, last week

37% first serve in the second set yet he had match point for 6-1.

Thank god he is a great returner!

Good win in just over an hour. Glad he didn't exhaust himself too much by needlessly losing a set for the upcoming Roddick re-match.

Only 1 Ace though, which is way below what he's been firing in recently.

1st serve again was way too low, he'll need to start getting that up a few notches come later on in the season.

Good thing is that we'll get to see the Roddick match on ES UK!

He does seem to have little conception of a first serve during matches, yes.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

In case you hadn't worked it out yet, this kid is fucking good.

I'm not complacent going in against Roddick - The Duck is hungry for some haggis revenge but I know it's a match Murray can win.

The consistency of his results so far this year is scary...and in some ways I hope he has a few early defeats as he will definitely be suffering physically post-US Open imo. Roddick will be keen for revenge and, as someone else mentioned, I wonder if he will try on the intimidation techniques he used last summer Hopefully Muzza won't run to mother

Aces are great for statisticians to look at and they can look nice for technique enthusiasts but really they don't mean anything. A service winner is as good as an ace.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game
