Fish through against Gasquet in straight, Murray groaning and grinding past Gulbis in a final set tiebreaker.

Fish has beaten Murray twice this year.

I'm not really bothered about Murray winning Cincy, would rather he lost here and rested up for the big one.

Fish to beat Murray for the 3rd time this year.

a little over-reaction because of today'results. Fish looks a lot better but Gasquet was AWFUL today.

I expect a 3-setter either way.

Murray if you lose to this clown 3x in a row... well...

Might be wise for Muzza to let this one go. H2H with Fishy is much less important than the upcoming slam and long term fitness.

Tennis wins, both great players for the game.
But Andy will win.

Fish. If Murray wins, it won't be in straights.

Not really an overreaction given the fact that Fish has beaten Murray twice this year and Fish has won 11 of his last 12 matches...but I agree, I think it'll go 3 but I have no clue who will win

That's how I feel - though I would rather it was not another loss to Fish, so I feel torn!

Well last time I thought Andy was getting by on a lackluster performance was against Monfils in Toronto...then he went on to straight set Nalbandian, Nadal, and Federer.

I don't think he'll do that again this time. Fish in 2.

Think Murray has got bigger fishes to fry than bother about soldiering on at Cincy and resting up for USO, Murray will probably lose in 3 tomorrow. Fish prides himself on beating players in lesser tourneys but completely fails to back it up in majors.

I accidently voted who cares. But Fish in 2. Muzza's almost pleading his opponents to beat him.

Fish will have to be a touch more aggressive than he has been so far, but he probably knows that. Unlike Gulbis, he also has the nous to follow the ball into the net when he's hit a virtual winner the previous shot - with Gulbis the rallies went: piledriver, Murray insane retrieve on the full stretch, piledriver, Murray deep lob, piledriver, Murray retrieves...... Gulbis error. He could have won a ton more points just by cutting off some of those at the net.


Served like Karlovic today also, that doesn't hurt.

fish will have to finish a lot of points off at the net which gulbis really failed to do. it's gonna be a battle but i think murray perseveres here

This is true, but Fish doesn't have the same FH that Gulbis does. On a court like Cincy's, Fish has a chance against anyone if he serves a decent % because he will be there at the end of sets with a chance to take it. The problem with Fish is that he often winds up serving around 50% or less in big matches.

I don't fucking know anymore when it comes to Murray, so I'll just see the match and whatever happens, happens. I thought he would lose to Gulbis playing the way he did v. Chardy, he played an OK match but still dug it out. So he can probably find a way to win tomorrow playing just OK.

He will have a full week's rest if he gets to the final. How much rest does he need?

yea i dont know whats up with this rest thing, there's a reason he ran around for 2:30 against gulbis

If Murray has a niggling injury, I would prefer he does not aggravate it - so it's not just about the rest. Irrespective, I expect Fish to win this match, much as it pains me to say it. Hope I'm wrong on all counts.

Gotta pick murray, but I'm sure hoping fish can pull this off. If he doesn't get to tight, he can win this.

Murray will be looking for revenge after Fish cheated his way to winning against him at Queens this year.
