Stan should've won it easier but oh well, a good match came out of it. Murray in the French Open final in this form would be rather tragic.

'Viagra are proud sponsors of Andy Murray. For people who can only ever achieve a semi.' :) Frankie Boyle

Granted it is somewhat outdated, more applicable to Thiem in Grandslams.

Murray is a big guy, but he doesn't have much power. His shot technique is not the best. He makes up for it in other areas of course, but there are areas Stan is definitely more talented.
Yeah Murray only hit the forehand at 73mph at this tournament on average, whereas Ostapenko averaged 76mph and Nadal 79mph, Wawrinka 81mph, Thiem 84mph.

A match still fairly haunts me as a Murray fan (secondary ofc, coming behind Rafa)

I was just thinking about this one the other day. Def gonna watch highlights soon

One more blatant reason to stay away from the unnecessary grinding physicality that comes from potential 5 set + 4 hour ligament & tendon destroying conditioned surface esp. if u r finesse type player.
