6-1 would have been an even nicer scoreline in the 3rd. Shame he got broken when serving for it.

32 winners and 10 UEs. Impressive.

Melzer tried everything, but Murray was just so strong. Based on current form, I hate to admit it, but he really is the favorite for the title.

The only downer is the almost usual issue serving out against a player who he has well beaten.

The rest - he just demolished Melzer, who looked mentally beaten when he failed to break in the second set in game 1.

Melzer was pretty terrible. Murray was solid so it was never a question who would prevail. The only time Melzer played great was when he broke Murray when he served for the match.

Murray played some scintillating tennis and showed great touch and a good willingness to pull the trigger. I don't fancy Nadal's chances against him if they are to meet in the semis but there are still some matches to go.

The 2nd favourite is performing admirably at the Open.

Difficult opponent, dispatched with ease, should have been 7-5 6-0 6-1.

Melzer played the match of his life at the USO, he was nowhere near that level today, and the scoreline reflects this.

Way to go Andy, you can win this!

Good performance but does anyone find murray very predictable with his passing shots? He goes cross court on his forehand EVERYTIME no matter where he is on the court and his backhand is now following a similar trend, if he hit up the line a bit more then he'd be even better

I agree especially on the forehand wing he needs to pass down the line a bit more - opponents who are playing him and pay any sort of attention should be moving to cover the pass crosscourt and keep an eye out for the lob every time they approach to the Murray forehand.

andy is playing like chelsea under mourinho: doing what it takes to get the job done. sure he's able to up the ante to some extent, but generally he's trying to "manage" a match more than anything. it's not like he's going out there to give the audience something for their money. he's winning, that's the bottom line. but he's winning chelsea-like, not barca-like. and i, for one, wouldn't pay a dime to watch any team mourinho is coaching.

Murray uses more variety than anyone in the the game, so I fail to see how anyone can call it dull. I guess ballbashing is considered beautiful so long as one has a single-handed backhand.

It was in the second and third sets where Andy turned it on. If you didn't see those sets, you can't say Andy was grinding out the result. It was anything but a grind.

01-24-2009, 10:37 AM
like i said, i've watched him many times. sure he can destroy the opposition but even destroying looks boring when andy's doing it. i remember watching him crush montanes (or whatever he was called, the one he killed 6-0 6-0 6-1) and even though you'd think he must've displayed brilliant tennis, it was probably the least beautiful destruction of all times - yet he did manage to come up with tons of winners etc.

i don't know why but his game is just not resonating with me. it simply bores me and seems so little interesting and too unflashy.

Confident performance from Andy, and was appreciative of the fact that he's starting to show a little of what he can really do in the 2nd and 3rd sets of this match. If he can put on a similar type of performance as he did today and mix up his 2nd serves some, he should come through in 3 or 4 against Tobasco, who incidentally, looks to have stepped up to plate over the winter.

He still has those slight lapses in concentration against lesser opposition, but I expect him to be on his game now from here on out. It's proportionate though, the stronger the opponent, the less we see of it.

P.S What's going on with Rusedski ffs? If he does make a comeback, he'll just be another Karlovic, but older and much shitter.

I cannot agree more.

Murray is doing extremely well, and I don't want to take anything away from that, but it does not thrill me in the least bit. It's all too clinical; his opponents undergo a dissectomy but it's me who is put under anaesthetics when Murray is on court. The only way I can find matches featuring Murray interesting is when he meets someone who can take him the distance.

Great effort from Murray, nigh on faultless performance really.

I almost wanted him to lose a set though with the downright disrespect the BBC commentary team showed towards Melzer writing him off and saying he was finished when Murray was only a set and a break up. Fair plays, they turned out to be right, but still it's a stupid thing to be saying when the guy came within a whisker of knocking Murray out of the previous grand slam. The constant fawning over Murray is just setting him up for a big fall if he doesn't live up to these high expectations. He has some immensely tough matches to get through if he's to take this title.

just got home from watching this match and the first 2 sets of Rafa. The top 4 look unstopable in reaching the semis.

Andy was fantastic from the end of the 1st set till the end of the 3rd. he lost 1 games in 14 or so. Awesome display and he'll take some stopping.

Like the quote in your sig ;) Well at least your not a jerk like many people on here so its easier for me to be honest with you. I dont hate Murray. I think he's maybe the best player on hard now and i do repect his tennis, although i feel he does need to win a slam to gain my total respect.

If you bad rep someone you're going to get a bad rep back, deal with it, keep looking for that sense of humour and maybe - just maybe you'll live long enough to reach adulthood. ;)

Melzer is still playing tennis? That result means nothing. Nadal's one is way more impressive.

Over the 30-year-old Tommy Haas?

Well Haas is a former #2, he usually plays well in Australia and gave a lot of trouble to Fed in 2006 but yeah his best years are behind him now

Melzer is a stronger opponent than Haas.

THANKS MY FRIEND.

I have been clamouring for a couple hrs now that Murray hasnt had any real opposition yet. Wait till da second wk, when things really get serious.

Yep. Not nearly such a test as poor Roddick has faced - two qualifiers and a 36-year-old Santoro.

I really can't see the point of all this arguing. Wait another week and we will know all the answers.

But Roddick sucks and has no real tennis talent, therefore everybody is dangerous to him. :bigcry:

It's always been like this in slams, the real matches start in the quarters.

Melzer is no slouch, and a scoreline like this is a great win. Tsonga will be a challenge if he makes it through.

i felt melzer really dipped after the first set. lost faith.

which was surprising considering he pushed murray almost all the way at the US Open.

yeah, Id say Melzer got sloutched in the meantime.

I've seen two Cipolla matches so perhaps I'm not qualified to give my opinion, but Murray does all of those three things you mentioned better.

Murray doesn't have a lot of touch, doesn't have a lot of tactical finesse and doesn't really go to the net. Perhaps he has the potential to do it all better than Flavio, but he hasn't been displaying that whatsoever.

The amount of bollocks in this thread is unreal! It's hilarious!

Andy Murray hit 32 winners today. That for me spells exciting tennis.

Secondly, Melzer was seeded, Haas I don't think was, hence, no matter what you want to argue, Melzer is the tougher opponent. (although in saying that, I watched both matches and I see an epic semi final looming as both Muzz and Rafa look in excellent form)

Finally, Tsonga will not be as big a threat as he is been made out to be. He's nursing a sore back for a start and is playing no where near as good as he can. Besides which, the way Murray is playing just now, that wouldn't even matter. Fed, Nadal, Muzz for semi's, Djoko a maybe.

It was in the second and third sets where Andy turned it on. If you didn't see those sets, you can't say Andy was grinding out the result. It was anything but a grind.
Totally. Rrainer watched the warmup, left before the fireworks, and says it was a boring match. Breaking it down into sets:
Points: 67 / 38 / 56. Murray's winners/UEs: 9/6 11/2 12/2.

So - winners per 100 points: 13 / 29 / 21.
Winner / error ratio: 1.5 / 5.5 / 6.

Tennis has been warned!

Definitely the best thing coming from Britain since sliced bread this guy :eek: :worship: :worship:

Cute fact for those worried about Verdasco: other than Nadal, Murray has never lost a match against a lefty (20 out of 20).

This Murray is good.
I think he can not only win this AO but do that without losing a set.
Despite having not played top players yet,he looks a class above anyone in this tournament.

Pavel (ret.), Granollers, Melzer :zzz: Let me know when Murray faces a real test.

:yeah: Muzza is on a roal. Verdasco next :unsure: Shouldn't be too hard ;)
