02-23-2006, 09:05 PM
I thought Murray would want to be off court as soon as he possibly can.

Instead he's let a 2 break cushion slip and is in danger of making this match much tougher by letting his opponent gain confidence.

Surely with Soderling again in the next round he doesn't want to be mucking around.

If Murray takes one of the next two points he should win this TB.

Do you know anything about Saulnier??? I am just interested it's fine if you don't.

Not much - 30 or thereabouts, one of the French players always eclipsed by his higher ranked peers. Has been up to 40 but typically lower than that - not won a match all season coming into Memphis, so he's obviously glad to have got his season going.

A typical lower top 100, upper top 150 tour journeyman - the occasional good win but never able to translate it into consistent success.

5-1. This set should be a formality now.

ORRR this is a Big stragey of making this guy tire out and get him into a tie break and then he could roll him in the 2nd.

But being up 4-0 before?...i dunno..maybe he got a boner or something because he gf was wearing something hot and it threw off this play.

You have to laugh, really. The man's some sort of drama queen, perhaps. 4-0 was looking a little too easy so...nah...

TehSuck
02-23-2006, 09:21 PM
it's obvious he was messing about to extend the set, maybe even lose it, to get some more court time. He has had precious little time to practise on these courts so far

Given he took 3 sets to dispatch Scheuettler in Round 1, how much time does he WANT on these courts to get used to them??? :D

Good break of serve though.

Now - let's try to hold on to it, shall we.

After Schuettler I could do with a nice easy win.

scoobs
02-23-2006, 09:26 PM
Murray's first serve % is much better than against Schuettler - 62% so far, so why he's conceding as many points as he is on his serve is a bit of a mystery.

Deuce.

stebs
02-23-2006, 09:26 PM
Deuce. Andy can't hold serve today.

scoobs
02-23-2006, 09:27 PM
Perhaps he's making a lot of unforced errors - there's no stats on that, unfortunately.

After racing ahead he does seem to have hit the skids a little bit on his service games.

Murray is broken straight back. This is so annoying. I know Andy can play so much better than this.

Maybe Andy is getting a bit complacent already thinking because he's beaten Roddick and Hewitt this guy should be easy?

damn you murray must you blow leads in every set

scoobs
02-23-2006, 09:31 PM
This will teach me to take ANYTHING for granted with that boy! When I predict he'll lose, he surprises me. When I'm confident he'll win easily, again he wants to surprise me.

Of course, watching score tick over doesn't give you a feel for how De Voest is playing - he beat Bjorkman so his form can hardly be terrible, so maybe he's playing a really good match after settling his early nerves. Hard to tell.

What happened in the first set should have blown away any complacency Andy's having at the minute.

I'm so glad Murray has withdrawn from Las Vegas next week - I really feel he needs a week's rest before he'll be ready to tackle Indian Wells.

De Voest holds for 4-1.

We may be looking at a 3rd set here - Murray seems to be temporarily all at sea.

This match has been so random. Either player could suddenly win a couple of games at any time.

Maybe if the worse does happen and Murray loses some of the press won't put so much pressure on him...although they'lll probably slate poor Andy!
