Default Roland Garros R1: [4] Murray def. Ito 6-1 7-5 6-0

Ito had 5 all, 40-0 on return to serve for the second set. Didn't take it, and the match was effectively over.

Ito showed at times in the match he does have some very good ballstriking ability. But Murray's simply too good defensively, too good of a mover, too experienced and too slick. Good serving from Andy, moved the ball around the court fairly well, but he'll need to play better against better opponents, which he undoubtedly will. Got too passive in the second set and it almost cost him but picked it up well when he needed to.

Good little test for Andy.

You came to that conclusion based on one match? I guess Nadal was going to lose early last year because he was taken to 5 by Isner....oh wait, he won.

Murray's second set tactics were a joke, although third set was a lot better.

Ito Stunk the first set out but the lad can hit a ball. Definitely impressed given it was clearly his worst surface.

Ito played a few good games in the second set but that was it.

Andy needs to improve if he's going to defend SF points, even someone like Gasquet will beat him playing like that.

Ito has a lot of room for improvement, his shot selection for one, and he can definitely imrpove his footwork on clay.
But he has a pretty good potential to be a solid top 50 player I think. At least he has a more powerful serve than Kei.

Hope Murray won't be too much bothered by the hip problem.

Solid enough from Andy overall. Ito got hot in the second set and would and given many of the top players a problem there, he couldn't maintain that level though.

Apart from the 2nd set Murray was not tested at all in this match. Tatsuma can definitely play, but gets easily bamboozled by a clever player like Murray.

It'll be very hard against Ferrer but I think he can do it.

Andy played when he wanted it could have easily triple bageled Ito but just laid off a bit in the second set, after that he wiped the floor clean.

(Just saw the reply :P)

For the most part, comfortable for Murray. Didn't have to play great or anything but was too good in the end.

Ito made the second set quite interesting though. He seems like an all or nothing player, which makes him exciting to watch.
