Murray avenges Indian Wells loss by convincingly beating Young in the American's two biggest career matches thus far (also US Open fourth round).

Bangkok F: Murray def. Young 6-2 6-0

19th title for Murray.

DY with nothing in the tank from the long matches he's played this week, looked nervous from the beginning, and never found himself today. Still has been a great week for him regardless.

Murray was sharp, played with AGGRESSIVE intent and more or less totally imposed himself on DY and never let off the gas pedal. The difference in experience between the two was glaring in this match.

Good start to this Asian swing for the Scot and gets him that little bit closer to the #3 ranking.

Good match from Murray, he didnt really put a foot wrong.

Will Murray be moving to number three at some point in the near future?

Flawless from Murray meets tired and clueless from Young, that's how you get 62 60 in 46 minutes. I think Don needed a bit of help from Murray to get into the contest and he got absolutely none.

Young :haha: :rolls:

So as we all know, Tennis died yesterday. So Murray couldn't save it. Little did I know he has Jesus like powers and could resurrect:angel: tennis by bageling Young.

Andy just a better class of player today although Donald looked tired and overwhelmed by the situation. On could draw parallels to the 2005 final where Federer defeated Murray in Murray's first tour-level final.

Thank you Andy for eliminating the chance of seeing Young holding up an ATP trophy.

Murray was too good. Unsurprising for the soon to be number 3 in the world.

Donald's only failure this week was the bagel. Otherwise what a way to kick off the post US Open swing. Couldn't ask for much more Top 45 beating the defending event champion and his second Top 10 win. That GS seeding poll I made about him is looking good right about now

Except Young is a good three or four years older than Murray was in 2005.

And as much as love Murray, he even now is nowhere near as imposing as Fed 2005 was. Also, Murray was ranked outside of the top hundred at that time.

Well, sure, it's not exactly history repeating itself. I'm just saying career-wise Murray and Young had very similar accomplishments coming into the Thailand Open in 2005 and 2011 respectively. Both lost to number 1 seeds in the final having had some big wins earlier in the week. It kickstarted Murray's career. Only time will tell whether it'll give the same incentive to Young.
