This will be starting around 3:30 Melbourne time, due to injury to Zheng in the prior match.
(Apparently livematch threads are only prohibited in GM, so I'm trying this - my theory is that MTF has wandered into a state where a lot of folks think such threads are banned altogether when that wasn't the original idea.)

Murray clarified with Chryst - no checking with coaches about whether to challenge.

Verdasco really needs to win the first set otherwise this could be over pretty quickly
01-26-2009, 04:58 AM
uh oh trouble already for Verdasco
2 break balls Murray

Murray making plenty of early errors, but looking focused and purposeful. Droppers, volleys, return winners: showing his arsenal.

Nando has a plan too: keeping Andy busy running side to side until he sees an opening.
01-26-2009, 05:22 AM
Sensational shot around the netpost.
01-26-2009, 05:34 AM
Nando showing a lack of fear of Andy's smash.
01-26-2009, 05:55 AM
Uhh....4-0 in the second set. What happened?
01-26-2009, 07:06 AM
Mental collapse. Possibly viral in origin.
01-26-2009, 07:15 AM
big serving from the Spanish one helped him to level

Come on, Andy get it together!
01-26-2009, 07:58 AM
What a joke, Murray you've lost all respect. All that form for NOTHING.

Well, the position of leading talented headcase is opening up with Safin's retirement - Andy and Gasquet are duking it out.
