Chardy to take at least a set.

But i think even in a Waw-Djok kind of match it would be again the fav to win it at the end

If Chardy wants any chance of winning he'll have to take it to Murray hard in the first and have Murray get down on himself for the rest of the match.

I think Chardy is playing well enough to trouble Murray here. It will be of a quite enormous benefit to him if they play on a hot day and he can hit through the court. If so, I give a set to Chardy but ultimate defeat in a close match. If they play in conditions more favourable to the Scot, it will probably be more comfortable.

Same scenario as the Haase match I think - Murray will be aware from the Cincy loss that Chardy is potentially dangerous.

Murray tends to get into trouble against opponents playing out of their skin for the first time against him, when he's in semi-comatose mode, and can't find any game. Second time, sharp from the off.

Chardy can get a set and I hope he does. Murray making the semi-finals without even being pushed in a set could be dangerous against either Tsonga or Federer.

Murray in 4.

Not sure what to make of this one. Murray wasn't at his best when Chardy beat him but he wasn't at his worst either. Chardy's slice backhand is a good shot to Murray's forehand so Murray will need to deal with that better this time. I think Murray in 4 tight sets.

Interesting matchup, good to see a new face in a Slam quarterfinal. Murray will probably win, but I'll be backing Chardy here. He has already backed up his uspet over JMDP by living up to the latter's seed, but would be awesome if he could do even better.

He should have withdrawn from doubles as soon as he beat Delpo, that knee tape is obviously just precautionary and not a serious injury but when any minor hindrance plays a big part when you're trying to beat the best players in the world. In order to beat Murray, Chardy needs to play like he did against Delpo and, more importantly, avoid his choking tendencies at all cost: the way he almost choked the match vs JMDP despite being far superior in all sets is far from encouraging. The question is: can he play two awesome matches against top players in the same Slam (most players can only do it once)? Has he drawn enough confidence from the win over JMDP to believe he can win if he gets into position?

The most likely outcome is Murray in 3/4 sets, but if Chardy can somehow play his 'A' game again he can be as dangerous to Murray as JMDP would be imo. There's a reason he's ranked where he is, but he could have a breakthrough.

Chrady is the same age as Nole and Andy, I always thought he's older Who knows, maybe he could make some sort of breakthrough here, but doesn't seem too likely
