Murray actually volleying pretty well lately. Just doesn't get to the net much, because whenever he hits anything aggressive it's usually an error.

Mugrin really does have quite a mental block against Murray.

Murray quite hopeless here too. He's managing his game well despite that, keeping good attitude, but a lot of the basics are just way, way off.

MuzzahLovah
03-28-2013, 08:03 PM
Phew, came back just in time to see Cilic surrender the break, Murray serve out the set calmly, and Cilic give away the opening game of the next sent. :cheerleader:

I think Andy's about to choke.

I find it hilarious when people say Murray will choke just because he squanders some match points while up a break...against Cilic. If it was against Federer, Djokovic or Nadal then fair enough but this is Cilic :lol:

WHAT A RETARDED UMPIRE!? :stupid:
Giving Murray code violation for legal 22 seconds between points and Čilić just when about to serve.

As for the match: watched the second and was disgusted by Murray extremely defensive play - and this is coming from a fan. Haven't seen such a pushing for a long long time. Most of his shots landing short and just waiting to get spanked. Murray ran 10 miles more than he should and tire himself in the process.
The second set was a bit closer than result suggests. 7 deuce game at 2-1 was epic. Marin just needs to be more consistant.

Gasquet is zoning right now. He's constructing points so well.

His ability to yank his opponents around is really underrated, perhaps because people can't often overlook his typically defensive style of play.

With Gasquet, it's quite important to make a difference beetween his rally FH and his attacking FH.
When he attacks it, it's often a great shot but when he just does a "normal" FH, it's really a poor shot that opponents can easily take advantage with......except when you're in UEs mood a la Berdych tonight
