Murray did the right thing. Just take the pace off and let Sam make errors. Did what he needed to do. Served well, though. Hit more aces than Sam.

Murray in moonballing mode still winning easily :p

Sam started well but then faded away as the match went on.

was following the Querrey match
All the other matches ended just before his match
The only matches I tend to post are those of Gasquet

Seemed like a conscious tactic. Just saw him interviewed. Said Sam is more of an inconsistent player, so he didn't have to take the ball on as much. Also said he felt uncomfortable on the court. Said he didn't feel like he could go after his shots like he did in Toronto, because the courts are so much faster in Cinci.

Smart fellow, this Muzza! :yeah:

I know it was tactical, i wasnt worried.

Murray isnt as good to watch playing like that, but hes still really intelligent. Sam was the opposite, he was hitting the ball exactly where muzza wanted it all the time.

Murray won anyway, nothing else matters really.

Yeah - a smart match from Sam tactically until the end of the first set - he was taking the ball on, trying to hit through Murray with some success and generally doing the right things and being rewarded for it.

Then he had a lousy tiebreak and collapsed completely, just patting the ball around in ways that would leave Gilles Simon agog with admiration, making some basic errors, and Murray mopped him up easily.

Andy got so bored with the procession he decided to serve 3 double faults in one game and dump serve, just for the thrill of it.

Disappointing mentally from Sam more than anything - his level of mental competitiveness just went right away.

I think it is easy to underestimate how different Cincy plays to Toronto or Montreal - the court speed is faster, the heat is much greater so the balls do fly around a lot more and it can be a very tough adjustment to make in a couple of days so the first match is always likely to be a bit tricky.

Querrey played a lot worse after the first set. Poor start from Murray in the first few games but looks like he settled well into it after that.

Murray like the Querrey type. But it's true that the transition between Toronto and Cincy is often difficult.

Andy was playing passivley but that was a good strategy against Sam. Sam played well in the first set but he just started spraying forehand errors.

Always a good thing when Querrey loses.Why do people hate Sam so much? He's not really that overhyped and he seems pretty modest i.e. not arrogant like Roddick and sometimes Blake.

Sam is okay - he could have a pretty good career without ever perhaps hitting the highest heights. Needs to work on that mental application though. Losing a tough opening set is no excuse to just mentally give up - no 2 for the price of 1 on sets.

His game is boring as shit and he is goofy looking. Nothing to like really.

Nice tactics from Muzza as always. Querrey's self belief is non existant he'll not get much futher up the rankings if that dosent improve.

Agree completely on the mental side. He also has Reyes working with him on fitness and movement. I think movement is one of his biggest issues, that makes him rely to much on that big serve. Then when it's not working he's in trouble.

When someone is hitting error after error, why not just put the ball in play and let them beat themselves? Tennis players aren't obligated to hit winners for your entertainment. Their job is to win. 6-1 in the final set is vindication for his tactics.
