Only saw the 2nd set, Murray looked very impressive despite a short walkabout where Dolgo even miraculously managed to break him. To no avail as this match was pure one way-traffic.
Dolgo too erratic, bad movement, weak serving, not a shadow of the player he was yesterday against Simon. Whether that was at least partly due to Murray playing very well or some other reasons is anyone's guess - perhaps that thigh injury was indeed bothering him too much. Dolgo even apologized for his poor performance to the crowd.
The lad is so charming. Can't help it. :hearts: Hope he'll be all well for the AO.

Congrats Muzza! :hatoff:

I agree Murray played very well and that Dolgopolov was very "patchy" so to speak but it appeared as though he could not move around the court at all, he was limping repeatedly and did not even "go" for balls that were hit across the court and at a fast pace..... I seriously hope this was just some of mental weakness and not something serious...

all that being said, Murray is looking good for Australia and his stock probably has went up. Dolgopolov please fix whatever this is

Well played Muzza! :)

Dolgo - well he played his best given that he was clearly carrying an injury (most evident whenever he was forced out wide on his forehand).

Time for Muzza to step it up at the Aus Open, and prove to everyone that he belongs up there with Nole, Rafa and Roger. :yeah:

You didn't listen to the speeches? Murray made reference to the thigh problem, he got treated in the match against Simon.

Worth getting up at 4am just for that.

Not so much for the tennis - Andy played great, rolled right on with his form from the SF - serving big and consistently. Alex was hampered and put up a good effort but couldn't do much, needed to be at 100% to really keep himself in enough rallies to make it a tight match.

01-08-2012, 04:46 AM
If Lendl being in the crowd means Murray won't get down on himself or start muttering, even after losing 3 games in a row out of nowhere to some on he had been beating so comfortably, Lendl must always be in the crowd. Pay him whatever it takes. But seriously, cool calm and collected Murray seems to be looking good for Australia after shaking off the rust against Kuku and Muller. :cheerleader: Let's go Muzzah! :cheerleader:

No I was watching a stream in Italian and just disconnected after hand shake at the net. Did not realize the thigh was a serious issue, really hope it gets better.

Should have stuck around for the speeches, but regardless, Murray looked good and hope Alex gets better!

Dolgo was clowning a bit much, especially in the middle of the match, of course his movement was a bit limited today, but there were some WTF shots...also for some reasons he didn´t slice very much today, you could see that he is playing almost always a drive backhand, not very usual for him nowadays. At least he woke up in the last games of the match and played some entertaining tennis, thanks God, at least for some points it had a sense to be awake till the end. Murray was playing what he needed.

to be fair, dolgo couldn't put weight on his right leg and was forced to go for broke. the clowning was more for entertainment value- he knew the fans were disappointed and he wanted to provide some value for money. regardless, murray was winning this match injury or no injury - only the margins would have changed.

Yep, was pretty disappointing that it ended in a rout, especially considering the walkover Kanepi had last night. Can't believe the women's final went longer than the men's...:sad:. 2hrs 20mins for two finals...I guess you can't always have epic finals.

Still good to see Murray live though, he did play well this week and has a chance at AO if he keeps this up.

I was there for the final and have to admit there was a sense that the crowd was a little bummed out. . . almost hoping Dolgopolov would win a few points to get a tighter scoreline. Nevertheless, I agree that Murray is worth seeing live. He looked a lot better than at the beginning of the tournament which is promising for the AO.

Look who's starting to find some steam, began rusty, but now he's playing decent. There's a slam just begging for him to be picked up in a few weeks, with Fed and Nadal off their game, only the Djoker seems to be in his way.

Players' careers are defined by slam wins so until Mugray bags a slam he's irrelevant no matter how many other titles he wins.

Also, beating Nadal in a slam counts for nothing when you actually lose miserably in a final. Nadal owns Mugray in slams anyway...

Murray is looking awesome: wins tons of points from the forehand side which is quite rare, his serve is working really great, he keeps a very good, high percentage of first serves in, while movement and backhand stays on the same top level.

If Murray's gets into AO with this sort of form and brings a strong mental attitude, I would definitely put him between the top favourites for the title.

Very good win for Murray after struggling in the first two rounds. He has found his range going into the Aussie Open. Whether or not he can sort out his Major problems with Lendl will be interesting to see.

Nice week for Dolgo, the guy is entertaining to watch. Bit disappointing today but he needed his absolute best to beat Murray and he couldnt find that.

People remember Henman because the Brits just won't shut up about him. It's the press and it's still fairly recent in memory. He's also one of my favourite players for his S/V. I would love to see anyone get to a RG SF with a S/V style nowadays.

In Murray's case, I can't stand both his game and his attitude on court.

Good last 3 matches from Murray now hope he will have confidence and is in good form going to AO. Last 3 matches were pretty good, yes he didn´tplay any top players, but who was there? nobody of them. BTW Murray will be remembered in history, i mean c´mmon guys with 1 slam like Korda or Gaudio that never win anyting else besides 1 fluke slam can´t be compered with Murray who is already best player ever without slam, even if he fails he has already multiple slam F, many SF´s , career high No.2, many Masters and is in top 4 competing with 2 best players ever for years- he will be remembered, because he was there as one of only few in opposition against Roger and Rafa. Oh yes he has positive H2h against best player ever and not like Hrbaty, Murray played a lot of matches with him.

Yes,there is one: Djokovic and especially Federer are capable of reaching a level above Murray's best in Slams.
I'm not saying he'll never win a Slam(i actually think he will) but i just don't agree with people who say that the main reason he couldn't win one of his 3 slam finals was because he choked.
Take the AO 2010 final: Federer was close to unbeatable that day and we all know that JesusFed>>>>>>>>Murray's best despite his negative H2H against him.
To put it simply, Djoker and Fed's best >>> Murray's best.

The numbers don't lie- Murray has won the majority of his matches with Federer because he's not only capable of beating him, he matches up favorably against him.

to be fair, the Australian Open is marketed as the Grand Slam of Asia/Pacific.

We are talking about Brisbane, which is not grandslam of anything. Also, Australia is part of the Pacific region, not in Asia. This tournament in Brisbane is not part of the Asian swing, which was months earlier.
