Andy Murray is better than you.

After quick match in semifinal against Nishikori who was forced to retire we can look forward for Andy to defend his title against Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov. Match is scheduled to start after 2pm Brisbane time tommorow which makes it 4am GMT according to official twitter website. They only met once in 2011 Bangkok tournament quarterfinal where Andy won 6-4 6-4.

"I have no idea whether he'll be nervous or enjoy the occasion. We'll find out tomorrow" Murray on playing Dimitrov in his first ATP final.

Andy kept an eye on Dimitrov's match from the gym. He will have a tough match on his hands in tomorrow's men's final, but I still think it is going to be an easy victory Smile

I wasn't really watching the Baggy match, but from what I've heard, Grigor has been playing well this week and is easy on the eyes too Whistle

Schedule on ATP livescores has Andy's match not before 2pm local time, so that's 5pm NZ, 4 am GMT, and 11 pm Toronto.  

Can anyone else confirm those times?

Actually, just looked at official site, and those times would be correct.

I have no idea why I put that wrong name up.

Murray Mad

Dimitrov has impressed me this week, he doesnt look overwhelmed by the occasion. He's real hungry for his 1st final appearance and a maiden title. I noticed he's really athletic, quick and slides like Djokovic, getting to most of the balls.

Andy'd better watch out as I'm sure GD will try to get an early lead. Worries me that Andy always lets opponents get ahead in the early stages. There's a pattern to it. Then he's put under pressure, but often responds well, tbh.

I voted for Andy in 2, but this guy can easily take a set in the final.

Surely they aren't expecting the men's doubles to be over in one hour?   Andy's match could be nearer 3 pm local time, 5 am here, I would think.  Oh well, better do the match alert according to the schedule!

I'm not under-estimating Dimitrov and Andy won't be either.  I've gone for Andy in 3, but ... nervous

Murray has been dire this week, so it could go either way.

I expect Murray to come through in probably two tiebreak sets.

Murray doesn't have to play his best tennis to win here.
