IW R3: Murray vs Lu

Quote

Andy Murray defeated Russian young gun Evgeny Donskoy in three sets to book a spot in the third round for the first time in three years. He will next face Yen-Hsun Lu of Taipei who saw off Martin Klizan in straight sets.

Andy can get him back for his defeat at the Beijing Olympics. H2H 0-1 to Yen-Hsun Lu.

Murray in straights. I don't expect him to be at his best in this match either, he'll save that for the later rounds, but he'll get it done comfortably.

The Beijing match should be out of his cistern by now. Hopefully Andy can flush his Taiwanese opponent down the toilet.

I think Andy will be better in R3. He finished off against Donskoy very well, so hopefully that is the shape of things to come. I think coming back like that against Donskoy will have done Andy good.

I don't anticipate any repeat of Beijing, where Andy looked out on his feet to be honest. I wouldn't be surprised to see Andy win in straights.

Andy was jet-lagged last time they met (about a hundred years ago in tennis years) and he was overwhelmed by the whole Olympics experience.

We all know how he does at the Olympics now. Smile

I remember Andy saying during the lead up to London OL that he was very poorly prepared for the previous Olymics. He arrived too late to aclimatize and get over the jet lag. He was also suffering from som virus, if I remember rightly (dont quote me on that last bit).

This time will be different!

Dunno BBH, I'd have to look at his recent form. Not a player I follow.
