Winning matches and titles without a serve against Top 30 players is possible. Not against Murray on grass. RBA has got an efficent 1st serve, usually, his 2nd serve is quite bad though. But today both were mediocre. It certainly didn't help him. And Murray also defended and played very well as a whole.
Bro tip to RBA: use better shoes, next time. It was embarrassing seeing you slide so much. :eek:

Poor Roberto, I'm a bit sad he couldn't make it more competitive, today. He is way better than what he showed today and people won't give him the respect he deserves because of the scoreline.
Watching him play in CC and showing his skills, touch and wonderful placement was already a good thing for me though! He'll learn from that match, no doubt.
Next goal for him: reach the Top 20 (he's 21 in the Live ranking, right?) and try something in the American hard court season.


But again: congratulations to Murray! Very solid.

Edit: very nice handshake. :)

Grassray grazes down yet another tough opponent. Amazing display by the animal saviour and gender equality activist.

Good result, Bautista Agut has nothing to hurt Murray on grass.

Despite the lack of a bagel and one loss of serve, a promising beatdown. :worship:

Excellent result, first tough opponent on paper and RBA has been playing well this year so a routine win is good to see for Murray in 2014. Bautista Agut wasn't too dangerous today but he was putting up a better fight towards the end. Murray looked very solid, except for losing his focus after getting a lead - it really could have been 6-2 6-2 6-1.

GOATray. Everything was working. If we exclude games where Andy lost concentration,it was perfect.
RBA didn't play bad. He played pretty normal.

...who is an even bigger pusher, so any problem cannot be found?

Grassray is in an amazing form, we need him in the final against Federer for true grass tennis fireworks.:angel:
If you think Rafa is a pusher you know nothing about tennis techniques!

Murray was pretty damn good in patches here. Could've done without the needless drops of serve though. RBA wasn't that bad, he's just not the sort of player who can really threaten Murray.

Murray once again has a field of clay courters on his way to the title :eek:

But his luck will stop when he faces the Clay Court GOAT in the final
