I thought he was poor after the first 2 service games, yeah. He only played well being bp down.
I'm sort of glad he won't play Federer tomorrow. It could have been a pounding. I don't think this result will affect him mentally at all.
Why? You think he played well?
I don't think he played badly by any stretch. They had some amazing rallies. Murray was hitting his groundstrokes unbelievably well. Rafa was hitting his forehand a lot better than in previous matches (or in the first 2 sets).
It was high quality stuff. Murray's serve was a big factor, he served brilliantly and returned Nadal's serve as well as almost anyone has.
