Nole's extra day was pretty much a practice session. Vulture rolled over like a pet shih-tzu.

A 90 minute gentle warmup against someone who offers no threat like Ferrer hardly matters. Djokovic would use more energy in practice normally.

Murray actually had much more taken out of him - he had 4 hours the previous round against Berdych, 3hrs vs Cilic, and 4hrs vs Lopez. Djokovic had walkovers against Lorenzi and Dutra, same against an injured Benneteau, then Wawrinka retired. Only even slightly tricky one was 3hrs vs Del Potro.

The hatred for Murray is ridiculous. Just proves how good Murray is now that many, many threadson here are dedicated to him, just to have a dig.

Although obviously completely absurd, this thread is at least good to weed out the hypocrites on this forum ie people who will bash this thread but agree with this one started by the very same OP (or the other way round): http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=195898

Missing the point. Murray is better in the wind. Murray will beat him in the wind. It's no secret. Ferrer almost beat Nole in the wind.

The point is that those wind speeds aren't normal for tennis, so it was an anomaly.
