O.K. now he really has nothing to loose - give him a fight Richard and go for it! He is holding his service games well now but so is Andy.

Is Richard showing some fight? We have Williams / Bartoli televised here.

I was sure he'd lose but I thought he'd at least take a set

This is one of more disappointing performances from Richard all year to be honest. Murray is playing very well but that is expected.

Serena is showing some fight. Richard has been broken. Just as well I am not watching, this is too sad.

Apart from tight first set, I gotta say Richard has looked like he was content with losing. Sad, but I guess 4th round in slams is all he wants for now. This is the reason he is not getting enough respect for his heart apart from his fan base.

True, it's the same old story, he has the talent and potential but not the drive and desire that's needed to win slams and compete with the best... onto the next one..........

VERY disappointing from Richard. Murray was playing just O.K. until Richard gave him all the confidence he needed to cruise to a win.

After the first set TB I thought it was over but I hoped he'd at least show some fight and not think that too.

Same old story.

on to Davis Cup??? and the wrost part of his year - the U.S. hardcourts.

He played well in the first set, but could not make the difference. From the second set onwards, his serve lost quite some penetration and the confidence went down with it. In the third set, Murray was a class of his own for large parts and served so much better than in his last matches.

I had hoped for more to be honest, but I won't join the moaners. Winning or losing, I will always support him.

I think his tactic of just getting the first serve in hurt him. I can see why he chose the tactic because he afraid of Murray's returns, but the first serve became really ineffective.

Oh well, I guess I should be used to this by now, having followed Richie for almost a decade, but I'll still hold out hope that one day the pieces will fall into place.

I think that tactic was ok before Murray adjusted to it and then Richard had to go for more on serves. The big difference is that Richard played horrible on 2nd serve returns. It is his biggest weakness right now, and perhaps it is weakest of all top 20 players. Richard simply can not hit aggressive returns of consistent basis, and you can't beat top 5 on grass without that. Mentally and physically this performance was simply horrendous. It seems he still has hangover from clay court tennis, but Murray has reached semis at RG and looked 10 times fresher.

well , thanks to the shit coverage of tennis in the US , I did not see much of this match
sounds like that is ok that I missed it
I am thrilled he made it to the second week, but had hoped he would have exacted some revenge against Murray - but it was not to be
good luck going forward in the rest of the year, Richard
