RG R3: Murray defeats Janko 'Gattuso' Tipsarevic 7-6(3) 6-3 ret

Hmmmmmmm. He was moving okay after the timeout...

Could have been different if he had left a Murray passing shot that was going out on set point 40-15 *5-4.

Murray rallied, took the breaker and started to dominate. Gattuso took a timeout and then played well for a few games after it, but Murray started to dictate towards the end of the 2nd set.

Then the retirement. :shrug:

Dejavu in the 1st set. Serbians and their timeouts make me sick.

Murray will make it to semifinal and he will have a better shot winning one set from Nadal than anyone else in that half of the draw, didnt belive that before this tournament.

Well done Murray into 4R RG for 1st time :woohoo:

Hard luck Janko, get well soon.

Some good stats from Murray, bar the first serve percentage.

Tipsarevic was excellent in spells, hope the injury isn't serious.

For some odd reason, I don't think Tipsy would have retired had he taken advantage of one of his many opportunities to win the 1st set.

Andy did the job...Showed true spartan form in the first set, even after losing his serve at 6-5, he broke back, wins the tie break convincely. Legend, Cilic will be a different case, but Andy will have a plan for him as always.

Janko and Potito proved that you can always have a purple patch against the top players, but once you exceed your purple patch it's back to normal service.

Gattuso joins Starace and Acasuso as the members of the Three Tenors, then again they'd choke on the high note.

Tipsarevic is applying for Italian citizenship. He is going to hang out with Fognini, Bolelli and Starace. What a masterpiece to volley into net a ball already in out on a set point.

Didn't look to me like it was going out. Seemed like it was drifting in at an angle. It started out and was coming in.

Still, this was a bit of a choke. More so than Starace, I thought.

Monfils beat Murray in the juniors too. In no way is Cilic close to being the favourite here. I think it will be competitive, but Murray is a clear favourite.

Murray is actually a good clay courter. He's top 10. People just think he's shit because he is nowhere near as good as he is in a hardcourt. Cilic isn't even top 20 on clay.

Even if it was going in (I don't think it would have) all Tipsarevic had to do is make that ball over the net, Murray was totally out of position. But choke does that, freezes your brain, and you go for impossible shots completely unnecessary.

He was at full stretch. I think it was a choke. I just don't think that point was a choke, since it wasn't as easy as people are making out. He was at full stretch trying to get the ball back in court. It reminded me of Roddick's set point against Murray at Wimbledon in 2006. That was easier, though.

Its only natural he choked. After all he was facing the awesomeness of Andy Murray Tennis God. Its just lucky Tipsy is not a female as there would probably have been an immaculate conception.
Brace yourself Cilic here comes the Andy Murray gun show, are you ready to choke

HeretiC
05-29-2009, 07:37 PM
Cilic is also able to do big damage, but I don't think he will have a perfect hitting day for best of 5 sets. But Gonzo will be real test of how good Murray is really on clay.

There must be a reason why it seems more people get injured playing against Murray than against anybody else. Could it be that he makes them run around a lot and play shots they are not comfortable with?

Agreed.

Unlike his first 3 matches, Cilic is potentially losable for Andy.

I thought depending on how ropey Andy was, each of his last three were potentially losable, but he's played well enough, and fought hard enough to get through them.

This one could be a different story, though. Even though clay is far from Cilic's best surface, I think his height helps neutralise some of what Murray attempts to do on clay and could end up smacking winners past Andy all day.

Cilic will basically have to play the match of his career so far to beat Murray over 5 sets. Even if Murray is off form he'll adopt the 'i'm not gonna miss a ball' tactic on the big points and you just know that Cilic will cough up the errors.

Murray vs Gonzalez is different though, Fernando will be licking his lips when he sees that plonky Murray forehand coming at him
