:o what a match, one of the most painful I've endured watching a scoreboard.

Muzza led *3-0 in the first, then lost the next 7 games.

Stani led 3-1* in the 2nd had break points for a double break. Blows a ton of break points, and Muzza scrapes the set.

Anyone see it? Was Muzza's knee ok? :unsure:


*Gasquet would've folded in 2* ;)

Total break fest, worse than WTA: 12 breaks of serve. In first set Andy from 3:0 lost 7 games in a row. He was twice a break down in second but Wawa choked it big time, with wawa losing it in a TB where he was also twice up a mini break.

Heck of a fighter, this Murray.

Stani should have buried him in 2 though. :mad:

Stani just saving it for the big events.

Murray 7/11 bps
Wawrinka 5/13

Typical. All damn predictable

Still, nice match for a 2nd rounder

I started to watch after the 3rd set.
At least Murray did moonball much less than Gasquet.

I watched only from the middle of the second set, and Murray looked fine.
The level was pretty high with a very good Wawrinka.
Really, Murraytard should not be worried.

I only watched the 3rd set but it seemed Andy found his serve whilst Stan lost his a bit. Talk about scraping the 2nd set - Andy good fighting. Bloody fast court.

I'm :banana: for Andy and :sobbing: for Stan. He was up a set and a minibreak? :o

But I did enjoy the parts that I did get to watch. Not many brainfarting errors.

Looked to me like after a slow initial few games, Andy went to sleep and Stan went on a rampage.

The second set was a dogfight with Stan in an early lead but Andy able to fight his way in and eventually just pip the second set. By then Andy was playing with full confidence and Stan seemed to let it get away very quickly.

Great fight from Andy though to hang in there and turn it in his favour.

He looked well down and out midway through the second set.

Was there still something to watch after the 3rd set? :D

Damn! I thought Stan was going to win this one but no, Doha again :o

Both Murray and Stani like the swings in their matches, well, too bad for my liking the score didn't end up otherwise.

Wawrinka is a weak tie-breaker, that's all. He'll lose many matches of this kind in the future.

Good win Andy. He started badly because Jamie phoned him this morning to say he was going to kick his head in when he see's him next.


That's just a rumour though :o lol
