After having twice been pegged back from a break up in the final set, Murray eventually gets the win and extends his H2H record vs Nalbandian to 4-2. Next up is Ferrer - their H2H is 3-3, Ferrer has won their three matches on clay, Murray has won their three matches on hard :). Murray will also be playing a semi-final in the doubles with his brother Jamie, facing the pairing of Robin Haase and Viktor Troicki for a place in the final.

Here's the stats for today's match, which 44% of MTF posters (including me :D) correctly predicted would be a straight sets victory for Murray:

Anyway well done Andy and please beat Ferrer too! :D

Dedicated to tennishero. Stunning prediction again mate, keep it up.

Decent enough match although Murray was looking tired towards the end, think his run might end against Ferrer.

When I first opened live scoring about four games into the second set, Murray was on 100% first serve win and about 65% on second serve... Shame he choked a bit at the end or he could've had superstats.

Nice win for Muzza. :)

Should be another slugfest against Ferrer but Muzza should win that match (might go 3 sets), and then hopefully he plays against Rafa in the final.

haha again mate? where is the again? and im not your mate.

murray did nothing, nalbandian handed the break with 2 DF's and UE's.

better player lost (like yesterday). all murray did was push, whine, hit aces, make himself look like an ugly bastard etc, the usual.

enjoy it murraytards, the ugly overrated scot is never winning a slam.

I have a question for murray fans.
What part of his game made you his fan? I really can't understand how could someone love his game.
Or maybe personality :confused:

Congrats to all you idiots who thought FatDave™ had a chance to beat Thick Legs™ in straights - there's no was no chance in hell of that ever happening. Unless it was a 18 year Murray back at Wimbledon 2005.

Nicely done, Andy. You have the measure of Nalbandian these days, winning the battle of the no-slam wonders :)

That doesnt make any kind of sense. In a game like tennis, the better player on the day always wins...that's kind of why they win. If his pushing wins him the match thhen he was better than how Nalbandian was playing and is therefore a better player.

Bless you my friend, I know defeats like this are tough to take for haters, but you'll survive.

When was the last time Murray and Nalby met, Paris 2010? I don't even have to look for that thread to know with 99% certainty that you will have erroneously predicted a Nalbandian victory.

I'm British so that's probably why I started supporting him. Personally my favourite part of his game is the dropshot...early in his career he used to nearly always fail with it, commentators would be saying he's stupid and needs to stop it etc...and nowadays he's turned it into a weapon that can actually hurt opponents.

There's something about him that sort of makes it seem like a lot of the time he's fighting himself as much as he is his opponent, I find it quite intriguing to watch. It's always more entertaining when you think someone might be about to have a breakdown lol.

Maybe sometimes he just hits balls in play and a lot of the time that gets him the win, but he can be aggressive sometimes and clearly has the talent to be able to play that way too.

See: Murray vs Roddick, Queen's 2011

Pretty bad example.
Any decent player can look a great attacking player against Andy PushDick.
Look at guys like Kolshreiber or Gasquet who produced around 100 winners against him.

I get it why you support him, same reason why I always like to se Cilic/Karlovic/Ljubicic winning, and that's ok.

ok, he has a good drop shoot, he is also having very nice volleys and very good serve, but he is simply to passive and everytime I am watching his match, I lose my patience.
he has good return, but what is he doing after that? he goes 2m behind the line and just hits the ball in play.

His passive game must be the main thing why I can't stand his game

Lol yeah - Andy Roddick, three-time Wimbledon finalist, four-time Queen's champion - he's easy on grass :)

I like to see counter-punching styles match up against big hitters, it's the closest we get to contrast of styles these days.

I like his all-round variety, I like that he's a bit flawed and inconsistent and can't get out of his own way sometimes - he's an imperfect creation and a pain in the ass to support sometimes but when he's playing well, his point construction, tactical nous and shotmaking makes him more fun to watch than anyone else, in my personal opinion.

People would find tennis a lot more dull without some guys like Murray around, all big hitting all the time is just tedious
