First easy game all day, hold to 15. 3-4 now. Murray has never held to less than 30.

Another Murray hold to 30, another Roger hold to 30. 4-5. Murray to serve for the set.

Roger is looking pretty shaky out there on court. Sorry this has to be my first comment here on this match. If I'm honest with myself, I haven't thought Roger's been near his best form all week ... in patches, yes - but patches aren't enough against an excellent player like Murray ... much as it grieves me to so call him. Ah well, its never over till its over.

And 6-4 Murray it is. Things doesn't look too bad. They're pretty evenly matched so far, apart for the truly horribe service game Roger had on 2-2. He can't afford more of those.

Murray's been pretty patchy this week too, but 3 DF's in one game - that's Verdasco territory

Roger has now saved four BPs, after initially having 40-0. Don't think I've seen that before.

Can't speak from experience of that as I make it a rule never to watch his matches unless he's playing Roger (and then its a bit "under sufference" In any case, Murray seems to make it his life's mission to bring his best game out whenever he plays Roger

6 BPS saved now! Still deuce. I wonder if this is a record in itself. And now play has stopped....because of rain. But they will restart immediately, it seems.
