Janowicz against Murray he really had that match on his racket if had held his nerve in the third set, Dimitrov was playing against a Djokovic in clown mode and so was Gulbis as for Raonic he got schooled but he will learn from this and comeback stronger.

Jerzy. I had a bet on him to win the first set too, can remember it clearly. He played ridiculously well.

Dimitrov second.

Gulbis and Raonic, can't say. Raonic without his serve will always play shit and the greatest return of giant servers in Federer, that serve become pretty much ineffective.

Interesting to see how these players compared to the big 4 in their first semi final...

Federer defeated Roddick in straight sets at Wimbledon.
Nadal defeated Federer in 4 sets at Roland Garros.
Djokovic lost to Nadal in straight sets at Roland Garros.
Murray defeated Nadal in 4 sets at the US Open.

They all offered very little and showed to be completely outmatched in most regards. Janowicz wins for being very consistent on serve for a big chunk of the match though.
