AK Perhaps you need to be stressing about tomorrow and your idol's draw that is going to be tough. Young Bernard is going to be a tough test especially with the crowd rooting for him. Our boy did good today and showed what a genuine young man he is with an abundance of talent, please don't try and take anything away from it. It was not an exhibition match, Llodra knew he had no chance and played the match out in a very good spirit, he recognised that Andy was sweeping him away and tried to give the crowd something to keep them entertained. Neither player had an arrogance of trying to make ridiculous shots, they were just playing extremely entertaining tennis.
This is a Murray thread so while I understand you want to talk about the most prolific GS winner ever you need to learn to stay on topic! but for the record am very confident he will beat the young upstart (whose behaviour against in Rd 3 was terrible)
You honestly think crowd support is going to bother someone with 16 slams? hes beaten all the top players and most of them in their own nations.
Monfils in Paris, Roddick in the US Hewitt In Melbourne, Murray at 02, and Tomic in Australia in the Davis Cup which is even more in Tomics favour, hard to see Tomic even getting a set to be honest but sure it will be a plucky effort.
Llodra is a great volleyer Murray a good returner, it makes for a nice contrast the first set was very competetive, but Murray served very well on break points i think he got 5 1st serves in a row in that is a very impressive stat.
But making it into an exho is making a bit of a mockery out of a major tournament, it is the kind of stuff I expect from a talented guy who wants attention like Monfils not someone who actually has ambitions of winning a major title.
