Montreal R3: A. Murray beats J.C. Ferrero 6-1, 6-3

Murray raised his performance from his first match building on his excellent defensive play with some impressive attacking play. His game continues to improve and develop. He attacks more on a hard court his favourite surface than grass or clay court.

On this form he has a good chance of beating Federer, if they play in the semi-final, and continue his accent to world number 2.

So far this week he is impressing me the most of the top players in Montreal this week even winning a point with a broken string.

Unreal from Muzza, just unreal.

Wayno played well and still lost 1 and 3. Unlucky for him, he deserved to be in Faker's or Nadal's section.

didn't see this match, but I'd imagine Murray did the right thing and played aggressively and took control of the rallies, something none of JCF's opponents did so far, and thus he lost fast like this.

Too good from Andy. Seems to be in excellent form. Some nice aggressive play mixed in with his trademark defensive play. He was actually toying with JCF in the end.

Pure class from my man. His movement on a hardcourt is the best bar none. Gonzo or Davy will provide a stiffer challenge, but with Murray in this form cant see him losing.

Very good performance from Muzza, who clearly was the better player BY FAR. Congrats, Muzza! :hatoff:

There wasn't much (or rather: nothing) that Juanqui could do about it, he got outplayed in every aspect. Still it was good to see him at least try to give his best efforts. Very nice to see the crowd cheering for every point he managed to make as well. :D

:hug: Juanqui, awesome run here, well done and hope to see you back soon in Cincy!

Too good from Murray. There's a reason he's 6-2 against Federer. He has all the offensive and defensive skills only he does them even better. He's pretty much at his physical peak too.

JCF has nothing to be ashamed of. Could have played better but when you can't read the serve or any of your opponent's shots it's very difficult to find rhythm and self-belief. He's still playing very well and I hope he keeps this up.

He'll never have the firepower he had back in 2003 but for sure he could have flattened out his shots and taken more risks. I would have liked to see him do that but Murray is the top counter-puncher in the world now and would have used his power.

It's not like there's any particular style of play that seems to bother the Scot these days, he's just the #1 form player.

Murray can still potentially get blown away. But he's the top counter-puncher right now, so unless you're aggressive (or a healthy Nadal) you have no chance.

Bottom line, unless you play a very very good match you won't beat him. Doesn't matter whether it's aggressive like Roddick or defensive like Nadal.

On hard courts.
On every surface except clay.

Ferrero has no chance in this match-up. Not the way he plays tennis these days. It'd be interesting to see Ferrero 2003 on had vs. Murray 2009 on hard = slight edge to Murray because of his brain.

Ferraro has nothing to hurt Murray.

Mobility = Slow
Serve = Not a weapon
Backhand = Always cross-court and flat?! Predictable
Forehand = Only Weapon

I had no doubt about the results. An in form Murray is simply superior to JCF on hards.

I didn't expect the scoreline to be so lopsided, but hey Murray is in his prime and ultimately has far more firepower and talent.

JCF didn't play a smart match and was a little too arrogant about the match, you really have to take risks against a superior player and he never really did. Pity!

I don't think JCF was having a row as such with Murray.

Seems that on the footbars in front of their seats it has their names and it should have a star/symbol??? to indicate how many Masters that particular player has won.

JCF was querying why there weren't 4 stars by his name to represent he'd won 4 Masters tourneys. I didn't see the entire incident but I understand he may have checked out what was in front of Murray so perhaps the cameras picked up on the conversation they had.

During the first set a technician came on to stick stars on WCF's name bar........
:rolleyes:

Anyhow - great tennis from Muzzah to get the win.
Wayne produced some decent groundstrokes at times and showed brief flashes of how he reached WR1 but Muzzah was just tooooooooo good today.

In fact even the 3rd Andy (Seppi) is a bad match-up. Must be the name. ;)

But seriously, a lot of it stems from the serve. He can't read either of their's so he can never put pressure on them. It affects his whole game, gives him nothing to build on.

Well done to Murray. He was really impressive on both defence and offence.


But seriously, a lot of it stems from the serve. He can't read either of their's so he can never put pressure on them. It affects his whole game, gives him nothing to build on.
I agree. And it's all match ups. For example, JC has trouble returning Roddick's serve, but he has no problem reading and returning Karlovic's serve.
Also I think two volley errors early on in the first set cost him the set. He's not bad at the net but it's often the first shot that crumbles under pression.

Hope he will have a well-deserved rest for a few days and get ready for Cincy where he traditionally does a lot better than in Canada. :hug:

Arguably one of Murray's most impressive and merciless demolition jobs ever. His ground strokes were pin-point on both wings and Ferrero was running backwards and forwards like a scared rabbit with a fox after it.

What a pity Murray only chooses to wear his aggressive hat once in a blue moon. If only he decided to play this way more often, I'm sure his fans (all ten of us!) would be well pleased, and he may even gain one or two more.

Please Andy, repeat after me, "The new attacking Murray starts here!"
