If there's three things that Murray has been criticised for lacking in his game it's

1) Powerful Forehand
2) Mental Strength
3) Second serve

I think he showed today that he at least has the first two of those in abundance...

Anyone with a brain realises that Andy will be in future semis and finals. Will he cross the final hurdle? I don't know, but he probably will. The stars will align, like they did for Del Potro
Too bad murray rely on his footwork too much, has no killer shots at all. Once he will be slower, anybody can beat him. Fact.
I wanted him to win today just as I wanted him to win last year's 3 semis but he failed and in a painful way. Enough is enough and time to wake up and realise he is a loser.

Exciting match. Even though Mr. Murray lost a close one, it looks like Murray-Lendl is working...
He must continue fighting. If he keeps giving himself the opportunity, I'm convinced he'll win a major soon.

Well done to both players.

Hopefully Djokovic is fine for Sunday.
No hope he is finished for Sunday

I know you are being sarcastic but actually you touched the essence of it.
Murray just played some of the best tennis he can produce and still lost. Djokovic obviously played at around 70-80% and still won. Tells a lot about Murray's chances in the future.

As I said, the aces go towards the winners count. In the rallies, they had the same number of winners.

Not that it matters.

Conditions were perfect for Andy : was really fresh mentally and physically coming to this match thks to his cakewalk draw, the fact that it was not the final, Novak far from playing his best, crowd slightly on his side...and Lendl in his box.
Result : another fail.

Even if we forget the relative "weaknesses" in his game like his forehand, it seems he just can't find the champion's mentality players like Fed, Nole or Rafa have.Not sure if there is anything he can do to reverse things at this point.

The forehand got better as the match went on, but it needs to be more consistent. I think one could argue his forehand was a big part of why he lost the first set.

Forehand: has been cracking since last Monte Carlo, Cahill and Groenevelde's influence. I'm still not sure it's a solid shot on faster courts though, where timing becomes more of a problem for him, especially against any pace. It's better on slow hard, and perhaps even clay - he can rotate his full bodyweight through the shots there, and with that extra setup time can generate 100mph+ if needed.

Mental strength: splits into many elements. Coming back from behind was terrific today. However, he was ridiculously nervous at the start, some of his worst tennis since losing to Young/Bogo last February. Couldn't get a ball in the court until the middle of the 2nd set.
