In the opening set, it seemed as though the Scot was going to disappear quicker than the felt from the tennis balls. But, despite losing the first set so heavily, and despite his opponent’s supreme self-confidence, Murray made a match of this. In fact, he made a fantastic match of this, on what was their first meeting since the one-sided final of January’s Australian Open. There was barely a clay-court granule between them, and it was extremely unfortunate for Murray that when he served for the win at 5-4, he hit two double-faults in the game, including one when Djokovic had a breakpoint ... The Serbian won the third-set tiebreak for a 6-1, 3-6, 7-6 victory.
