Petchey and Shiras are spedning a lot of time talking up Murray's win from last night.

I agree it was impressive, but he was playing a guy who needed 5 sets to beat Cippolla. They've got him winning the tournament.

I know. Most players can express themselves with their game on the court when they're not being pushed with any sort of consistency. Stan played the occasional good point but mostly he was just the foil that was on the court to be pushed about by whatever whim took Andy's fancy from one mood to the next.

He was impressive but he was not tested nearly enough to read any further aspirations from that, except that he handled the occasion well.

Let's see if he can get by Del Potro because after that it's where it gets interesting.

Robredo is matching Nole from the back of the court so far.
Now I've said that he'll get broken this game.

Exactly. I'll be gutted if he doesn't beat Del potro, and I think he should win because he is the better player, but I can easily see Andy lose that match.

Did you catch who Petchey said had made the comments about Nole vs Cilic being good ball striking, but that Murray's performance last night is how tennis should be played? Was it Wilander?

That was Wilander who said that, yes, he was doing commentary for someone else and that was one of his remarks - also that Murray was the best thinker out on the court today.

But that's Mats and he hops on and off bandwagons after very few stops.

That was lovely from Robredo.

@ sawan on GM saying Stepanek could be ranked as high as #3 or 4 ... if he played the WTA tour.

His beauty would mesmerise all the ladies and they'd be too busy proposing to badly miss forehands over the baseline. So it's win-win.

Tommy confused by that act of sportsmanship from Djokovic - wouldn't have occurred to him, clearly.

Nole pulling out all the stops to win over the crowd, and they reward him with lukewarm applause.

You're not a fan?

I think Leif Shiras is a really bad commentator. He doesn't add much insight-wise, and he's not funny.

His game bores me but I didn't dislike him before - now I slightly dislike him when I saw his performance in Hamburg against - was it Kohli? The whole cockup with Armstrong miscalling a ball and Robredo getting the supervisor involved and Robredo ending up with a point he didn't deserve. I didn't like that.

Oh, yes. I forgot about that.

Can't believe Robredo seems to have the crowd with him here.

Djokovic looks very out of sorts.
