Re: Shattering Shenanigans in Shanghai!

First easy game all day, hold to 15. 3-4 now. Murray has never held to less than 30.

Re: Shattering Shenanigans in Shanghai!

Another Murray hold to 30, another Roger hold to 30. 4-5. Murray to serve for the set.

Re: Shattering Shenanigans in Shanghai!

Roger is looking pretty shaky out there on court. Sorry this has to be my first comment here on this match. If I'm honest with myself, I haven't thought Roger's been near his best form all week ... in patches, yes - but patches aren't enough against an excellent player like Murray ... much as it grieves me to so call him. Ah well, its never over till its over.

Re: Shattering Shenanigans in Shanghai!

And 6-4 Murray it is. Things doesn't look too bad. They're pretty evenly matched so far, apart for the truly horribe service game Roger had on 2-2. He can't afford more of those.

Re: Shattering Shenanigans in Shanghai!

Murray's been pretty patchy this week too, but 3 DF's in one game - that's Verdasco territory

Re: Shattering Shenanigans in Shanghai!

Roger has now saved four BPs, after initially having 40-0. Don't think I've seen that before.

Can't speak from experience of that as I make it a rule never to watch his matches unless he's playing Roger (and then its a bit "under sufference" In any case, Murray seems to make it his life's mission to bring his best game out whenever he plays Roger

Re: Shattering Shenanigans in Shanghai!

6 BPS saved now! Still deuce. I wonder if this is a record in itself. And now play has stopped....because of rain. But they will restart immediately, it seems.
