"Muggay" destroys Chela 6-1 6-3 - 'Performance of his life?'

Fuck me that was good :worship:

You'll struggle to see a better game all year than the one Murray played at 3-1 in the 2nd set. 4 clean winners, and the first 2 points were absolutely unreal.

Chela never really turned up until it was too late, but full credit to Muzza for a brilliant performance :yeah:

Murray exposed Chela's limited game at the fullest, in particular taking advantage of Chela's tame serves and baseline play. Winner of Rafa/Baggy is next. Rafa won't be looking forward to this match, if he beats Mughdatis.

I think Juan Mugnacio had 2 winners in the whole match. Yes, you read that right, 2 winners. My pet frog plays better attacking game than him.

JIC did attempt a comeback late in the second set, but it was too little and too late.

Muzza :hatoff:

That was till *4-1 as good a performance from him I've seen. Great attack, crunching the ball and bossing the pusher mug AOTS. :)

He nearly let him back in it though.

Bring on Nadal.

Excellent until 6-1 and 4-1 before the PMM ("Poor Man's McEnroe) went walkabout making silly errors. Robredo was able to take advantage of one of these walkabouts a couple of weeks ago after Murray won the first set 6-0.

Amazingly only a week ago Chela had a match point against Djokovic.:eek:

Early form in match could enable to challenge Nadal.

His attitude was spot on today. Not much berating himself, he just seemed to be enjoying his tennis. Great to see.

Also, it seemed he was making a noticable effort to move quicker between points. Whether it was just to unsettle Chela or if it's part of his new strategy to try and keep focused I'm not sure, but it certainly worked.

I felt he had a lapse at 4-1 up in the second set which nearly involved losing serve 2 times to go 4-4. Robredo may him pay for that sort of lapse.

I wouldn't have said that's a lapse, he might've played 1 or 2 loose points but it wasn't a total mental meltdown like he's been prone to. There was no way he could play at that level the whole match, and Chela stepped up his game.

Maybe there's a confusion over the term 'junk ball'. How do you define that? I myself didn't want to use it in some negative sense of the word, but just a stroke which has little pace and doesn't open any sharp angles for the opponents to work with. Maybe that word actually means something else?

When I was watching this match I was reminded of the Gasquet match against Roddick at Wimbledon, with Gasquet ripping backhand winners from anywhere, because I had the same sort of feeling that he was finally showing us just how good it can be when it all comes together.

It's a question of whether he's capable of producing this sort of level with the necessary frequency.

Yes I think that is a good definition. Murray used many different effective tactics that day and junkballs off the FH to create himself a chance to attack was one of them, I often feel Nadal has a counter-puncher BH, it has a lot less spin than his FH usualyl and he feeds off pace.

True. As I've said before, the object is not to make tennis look pretty (though this helps) or to make tennis look clever (though this is fun to watch), it's about getting the win. Djokovic does this with more efficiency, at the moment, than players like Murray, Gasquet and the like.

I don't have time to watch any tennis until Friday so I cannot comment on the match but I think Murray relies a lot on anticipating his opponent's shots, so playing a counterattacking style appears natural. His forehand also is not always reliable when used offensively. Overall, he is different to most players on the tour these days.

I agree that Nadal is a nightmare matchup for Marcos, he cannot attack high balls from either wind without making errors so he tends to drift further and further back during baseline rallies. Still, I would like to see him at least fighting, Nadal must be very rusty here.

I just realised that depending upon how the players in the race between current #7 Gonzalez - #14 Ljubicic do this week in Madrid Andy Murray could realistically put himself in contention to qualify in 7th or 8th place should he win the tournament and perhaps even if he finishes as the runner up.

The current #7 in the Race is Gonzalez and he is on 343 points and the current #8 in the Race is Haas with 328 points. Should Andy Murray win the Madrid Masters his Race points will go up to 366 and should he be runner up (prolly to Federer if he makes the final) then his Race points would be 336.

So should Murray at least make the final and players like Gonzalez, Robredo and Blake don't do that well in Madrid then Murray will have to be perceived as a serious contender for one of the final two positions to qualify for Shanghai.

In Rd 3 he faces Nadal who hasn't played since the U.S. Open while Murray has played many matches and is in great form and then you would think he would overcome Berdych, playing how he is, in the QF stage to probably play against Djokovic.

We'll just have to wait and see how far this good form will carry him.

Well done Murray! That was some flawless, inspired shot-making especially in the first set. Good to see him injury-free and back on form.

A shame he has missed about 1/4 of the season. Would be top 8 for sure and probably top 4/5 if he had stayed fit.

But thats life. It could of been worse, he could have been Ancic!

Hope Rafa gets through tonight and Andy gives him another good game regardless of the result.

Darth Cheater fans take note: what was shown today was GENIUS. Mark my words. In three years, Murray, if healthy, will make Darth Cheater look foolish on the court. Pure ball striking talent (Murray) vs. WTA talent (Djokovic)...I'll take Andy every time.

I guess that is why Novak TRASHED him THREE times now, and CONVINIENTLY Murray was injured ALL THREE TIMES!!:haha: :haha: :haha: :rolls: :rolls: :rolls:

Awesome from AndyM but...........you just never know which Andy will turn up. I can see shades of Tim Henman here.

Given his injury and long lay-off plus his relative inexperience yet on the tour it's noy easy to assess where he might go - at his best he is a top 3 player but I worry about his inconsistency.

Andy's 20 years old. Lets give him a few years to work out how to get the Andy of last night on court. Rafa and Nole are in the same age group and have better mind sets but out of the 3 who has the most raw tallent on all Surfaces?

Talent is not the most important thing in tennis. There are QUITE A FEW very talented players who are not even in the top 10.

Murray wishes he was 1/100000th of Mecir's level. As for similarities well Murray can look bored and disinterested on court sometimes.

Murray still has a long way to go but they are still comprable in many ways and for his age Murray's point construction is very, very good and he has as many options as Mecir did if not more because of his added power. He makes more imstakes still and does not hit his groundies with as much angle but there is certainly space for comparison.
