Really disappointing display from Murray from the parts I saw- how does this compare with what he did against Mahut in Queens? Do we think he can bounc back for the USO like he did for Wimby?

I think he can bounce back for the US Open, but of course it all depends on what's going on inside Andy's head.

The extra rest may prove to be a very good thing. Then again, who knows?

I just realize Murray's first title win was against Hewitt at San Jose in 2006. He's really had to work for every milestone.

Interesting draw for Andy

R1 Bogomolov Jr
R2 Dofig
R3 Lopez
R4 Raonic
QF Tsonga
SF Federer
F Djokovic

is the potential route.

In spite of the horrible loss last year, not really worried about Bogo. R4 vs Raonic could be interesting, then the back end is intriguing.

I think, I'm okay with the draw. It's better than I expected.

A great 1st week draw on PAPER! 2nd week draw is tough as expected in a GS---we'll have to wait and see....I think theres a reasonable chance Raonic fails to make 4R anyway, tbh --even if he does THIS Murray has enough in the tank to beat him.

Andy just hasn't played very much or very well on the Hard Courts. So I'm not too comfortable right now

If you wanna be the best you have to be able to beat anyone, otherwise you don't deserve to win. Anyone could catch fire and beat him. He has an excellent record against the players in his quarter, except Raonic, who he lost one clay match to. At this point it's not even certain Raonic will reach R4. I really don't get all this worrying. You either believe in him or you don't. If he's not in form he doesn't stand a chance anyway. We should be happy that he didn't draw Berdych or del Potro in the QFs. I prefer Tsonga by a mile.

True but he's now had 3 weeks hitting on it, even if his matches haven't gone well. And you know that a slam is what he's focusing on. I think he'll play himself into the tournament, though I still expect an ugly match somewhere. Possibly Lopez or Haase (again!) in R3.

He's shown that on his game, he can handle and frustrate Tsonga. He can do this to Berdych and Delpo too but I think they have more potential just to hit him off court than Tsonga, who is a bit more creative on court.

He's 6-1 against Tsonga. He's definitely a better match-up for Andy than Berdych. Although I'm not sure if Berdych will make it to the QFs, he seems to be off his game lately. Andy hasn't played against del Potro since 2009, so that would be new territory in a way, even if he has a great record against him too. The best option would have been Tipsy, but you can't always get what you want.

Besides his Wimbledon draw was tougher than this one and he got through that as well. Let's wait and see what happens. The draw could still open up.
