Excellent chance for both as the winner will be favoured to make the semi-finals.

Murray has completely dominated the head-to-head: 3-0, 7-0 in sets, closest set 6-4. But this will be their first meeting on clay and first match since Wimbledon 2009.

Hope it was Tipsy otherwise Murray's JOKECAKEWALK draw continues.

I also do hope that Murray recovers. It'd be a pity if he doesn't play even if I hate how lucky his draw has been. If he is to get to the semis/final/win he at least needs to beat a few players ranked in the top 20 not just qualifiers and journeymen.

I doubt it's too serious. If it was serious, he would've retired from the Berrer match. He's not stupid and he knows what he's doing. I'm sure it's a pain and nothing's torn. He'll be better soon anyway, hopefully in time for the Troicki match. They could put him on late in the evening, so he can get some extra rest on match day.

Had the ankle treated before a light practice late afternoon. Decision to be made tomorrow apparently.

Personally I think he'll be fine, if it was so serious he surely wouldn't have been able to continue (although admittedly it was only Berrer), plus the fact the scan seems to indicate there is no serious damage can only be a good thing.

Hopefully he does make it, otherwise you may as well give Nadal his place in the final already...

Fair analysis.. not your strong suit is it? Funny thing is you never come up with a good explanation for any of the junk you come up with. The only thing you prove is your fear of Murray and anyone else who could beat Nadal, and hoping beyond hope the "spartan" gets the easiest opponents possible.

He should be ok..


Andy Murray spent most of his time on the treatment table following his third-round win at the French Open and knows that his sore ankle will not make things any easier for him in his scheduled fourth-round match against Viktor Troicki.

After a scan on the joint that he hurt in Saturday’s win over Michael Berrer proved clear, the world No 4 said he was ‘optimistic’ he would be fit to face a player who has not taken a set off him in three meetings.

But the tough Serbian baseliner is still the world No 15 and is willing and able to exploit any lack of mobility in the Scot. ‘If he cannot run I’m going to take advantage of that — he would do the same,’ warned Troicki.

‘We are all professionals. Sometimes it’s ugly but that’s our job.’

The 24-year-old Scot’s camp will be sweating on his fitness as this is a key match. Murray has never been past the last eight at Roland Garros, but now there is no other seed between him and a place in the semi-finals.



If fit Murray in 3.

Very odd match, Murray obviously the better player. He was barely on the court for most of the first set, yet still should've levelled it. 2nd set was a mixture of a weak mentality, plain poor play and good guts from Troicki. After that things played out more normally.

By no means should this be a five setter though. Poor from Andy tbh.

absolute disgraceful scheduling all this RG

for 3rd time a men's match held overnight on that court and not one of those because of rain delays

idiots need to take a good look at themselves in future

And one of them only lasted 2 sets(djokovic/potro) Abysmal stuff. I guess it's not happen for the qF because there are fewer matches but this is still a disgrace. Doesn't happen anywhere else, only happens sometimes at Wimbledon because of Rain...but even you have Centre court roof and Light.

As for the Match, Murray needs to look at himself really, could have easily won the match but decided to flap around in the 2nd set. HE always does this on Clay courts..he wouild have won this match 3 sets easily on any other surface but on clay he's so inconsistent.

There was only going to be 1 winner if the match was played on 1 day.

By the end of the 4th set Murray was totally dominating the match and Troiki looked tired. Coming back tomorrow Murray loses advantage of it being the 5th set of a continuous match.

philosophicalarf
05-30-2011, 08:48 PM
62w 52ue for Murray, crazy stuff. The reason why was pretty obvious, didn't want to run, and the ankle wasn't stable enough to hit reliably on the run - especially his forehand passing shots and backhand drive on the run were really struggling, both normally deadly.

Troicki's coach will have noticed that, where Troicki himself clearly didn't.

Painkilling/strapping should be better managed for Murray tomorrow though, and with only one set to play both are easier to plan. Should be less chance of another cold start as a result. Can also have a bigger warmup beforehand, apparently today he wasn't able to.

I'd say it's 60/40 to Murray.

Honestly, Murray has almost no chance of winning the FO anyway. He's just too worn down physically imo. Maybe he will surprise me but I can't see him getting past Rafa/soderling, and even if he does he'll have NO chance against Nole. Only hope is that Jesusfed takes out the djoker and then reverts to Shankerer in the final.

I just hope he fights to the end and doesn't lose to Troicki or Chela.

Yeah, but not based on those last two sets, if the match went on today Murray would've taken it based on your logic, I agree. But they start tomorow with a clean slate, Murray is a slow starter and probably has a stiff ankle, Viktor does know this, he will preassure Andy from the start and he isn't tired this time like he was in the last set today. One break and holding it is enough, I'm not sure about Viktor's mental part but if he want's to become someone he has to take this.

As a Murray fan the restart tomorrow is kind of worrying.

He obviously wasn't comfortable on his ankle in the first set, he did well to get it back to 6-4 to end the set. He SHOULD have won the second but that was his fault for letting the break go. He played well towards the end of the third to take it, and played very well in the fourth, if the match was continued then he would be winning this match, there's no doubt about that in my opinion.

However, it obviously took a while for him to get used to the ankle today, I'm worried the same thing happens tomorrow. And in that case he can't really afford it because it's a one set match tomorrow. I hope he was just a little cautious on it today as he didn#t know how it would fare under match conditions. Now he knows how it is, hopefully he can continue to play at the level of the third and fouth sets.

Either way, a great fight back so far from Murray.

Murray did a great job to come back. But, VC will almost surely return to his dominant serving ways, and Andy simply cannot handle that. And Murrays own serving is very inconsistent, and it virtually ALWAYS breaks down in pressure situations, as does his game. I'm pretty sure he will lose.

blank_frackis
05-30-2011, 09:17 PM
You've got to ask what the problem was with the ankle in the first place. It looked more mental than anything else - like he didn't want to test it too much in case he made it worse. He was tip-toeing around in the first set like a wounded giraffe when he clearly didn't have much wrong with him.

That wasn't just the ankle "warming up", he obviously had a complete loss of confidence in it and by the end realised it was fine. I can't see him being as bad as that tomorrow, but now that it's just down to one set he could still lose.

green25814

If Soderking does the biz on Wed, then I have no problems whatsoever with him being the one to take Murray out on Friday. Andy going to 5 here is a huge blow, he needs to finish Troicki off quickly tomorrow.

That said Troicki played a very Murray-esque match and impressed me. Runs down balls well, absorbed a lot of offence and counterpunched excellently. Deserves respect, but he'd bend over at the business end of the tournament and needs to go home.

Nadal-Soderling is the semifinal indeed. First 2 sets today showed why Murray hasn't won a Slam yet, he's still an up-and-down player and he hasn't fixed it in all this time. He's like Monfils on so many things, just a better player.

I actually wouldn't account the injury into the analysis of the match. Murray has hardly been on 1 leg.. After the first set, Troicki took full advantage of Murray's bad play, which had nothing to do with his injury, since he seemed to be moving fine after the cautious start. As the 15th seed I think he's done a great job to show his worth at the top of the game so far in all honesty. He may even pull this through in the 5th.

Better to ignore things like injuries or whatever other negative influences on players and give credit where credit is due.
