Murray was 2 sets to 1 up, but was beaten easily in the third and was break point 15-40 at 5-5 in the fifth. I believe Murray was 5 points away from Victory, Nadal was 6, its too close to decide....if he keeps this up, he may take 3 next time. What do you think?
Also, who gave Djokovic a greater scare at 2012 AO;
Nadal or Murray?
Its not like Nadal had the chance to get it done in 4 sets if anything he was lucky to play a fifth set today.
Hehehe giving Nole Hewitt, Ferrer, Murray, and Nadal in a row is a lot more difficult than it looked at the outset. Grind grind battle survive etc.He took sets playing perfectly on a ridiculously slow court which suits his game against a Djoko who was making a lot more UEs than usual and who had one less rest day from a longer match. Indeed, next time RN might get an even easier draw and Djoko is forced to play Murray, Fed and Tsonga in succession so the Rafole 'rivalry' can take off. In that sense he's definitely getting closer.
