You're right, i just get tired of people complaining that anyone other than their faves got cakewalk draws. Murray can be dangerous on clay, it just so happened that he's playing awful today. The one who got a really easy draw here is Murray.

I don't know what it is about Murray. Don't get me wrong, he deserves to be number 4 in the world. But he just seems to be a chocker and have a bad attitude. I'm probably being unfair since he has accomplished a lot, but the guy can't produce his best tennis at will like the other three.

Troicki looks tired. He needs to work out more. At least his serving well now. Anything could happen here. Even Troicki in 4, but that's not very realistic :)

or keep it at 1 major court and the rest outside. Either way they need to sort something out. Television rights is also ******* awful. one channel shows everything and you miss a lot of matches. At least with Wimbledon you have Match choice where you can select what match you want to watch. No flood lights in any of the couts either a joke Grand slam. shame because i love watching the Clay court matches. Can't wait for Wimbledon, a far superior event.

You can get multicourt with eurosportplayer for something like 4 euros, covers PC/SL/1/2/3/6/7. They do Aus and US too iirc (which is dubious, cos I'm tired+alcoholed).

In fairness to Troicki there has been other chokes around his ranking as well. Like the choke Tsonga did from 2 sets up. The choke Almagro did from an even higher ranking

EDIT: And berdych ofc. Forgot he was 2 sets up :)

VC is moving far worse now. He is tired, and he is not serving anywhere near as well as he was.

But he will come back tomorrow knowing he only has one set to play after rest. A little unfair for Murray. Murrays chances at winning shouldn't be dictated by scheduling.

Yea, it pretty much does. Murray deserves to win tomorrow, but I don't think he will. Because when VC is serving well, with these balls, it's going to be very tough for Murray to win.

Yup.

You'd have thought beforehand, and especially when 0-2, that suspension would benefit Murray. Here it clearly benefitted Troicki, I don't think he'd last another few games without being broken.

*1-2 Troicki, like this tactical style of tennis (some call it pushing) Viktor and Andy are playing at the start of this 5th set, thaught that Viktor Power would balbash a lot more. Nice sharp volleys, angles, dropshots, slices and pacing right here.

concerning his height, sometimes when they're standing next to each other with Nole, troiki seems to be a bit taller , so it's possible that he is 6'4

Murray has always been classless. He was complaining when the ballkid ran on court as if he had any business winning that point. I've seen several players awarding points to their opponents, but I could never imagine Murray doing such thing as he simply has no morals or common sense :shrug:
