Great post scoobs and I agree with it 100% But I also wish Milos the best because I think he is a very talented player!

It is pretty clear that Murray will focus and win every important tournament from now on.

Only watched the first set,but I have to say it was the best I ever saw Milos play. Some impressive BH returns,which is one the weakest things in his game Take the title.

This defeat just shows what a mug Mandy is, he won all his titles and especially that slam only because ALL of his opponents played terrible and pathetic.

I didn't see the match, but I'm going to (thanks Miss Molly). I didn't expect Milos to def. Murray at all. good win for him. Some of Muzza fans annoy me by calling Tokyo a MM tournaments and brushing it off like nothing happened. not cool. It is great that Andy won his first GS, but if he wants to become #1 he needs to start winning 500/1000 tournaments again.

Not that big a surprise. Tokyo isn't a particularly fast court, but it's fast enough that it doesn't allow for a guy like Murray to push and retrieve everything. In those conditions, facing Murray is hardly a scary proposition.

Still, great match from Milos. His serve was great, he was extremely aggressive and made his shots even in pressure situations and was more than adequate at the net. The only negative aspect would be his return, namely his first serve return, gave Murray a lot of free holds with completely missed returns.

Regardless of tomorrow's result, there's no reason why Milos shouldn't be a top 10 player soon.

Raonic played near his best and Andy played terribly. That was the only way he was going to win and it happened. Even though Andy was absolutely awful, he is still made the match as close as this. Says a lot about him when at 30% he can push 100% (give or take) Raonic that far.

Not really fussed about the result. Enjoy the win, Murray haters. Andy at least has something that Raonic will never have

He's not Djokovic Andy's opponents actually played very well against him at the US Open, unlike a certain 40+ match streak in 2011 where every opponent played like shit

who cares about the Asian swing anyway. It's so boring, It's so lack luster, such an awful part of the season. It's all about the big tournies for Andy from now on.
