Look I mean Murray should be able to get revenge on Tipsy for his loss in the 2nd round in Dubai in 2010 in that unlikely event of that match up coming true!

Were the first 3 words of that post not utterly superfluous? You're not Federer I'm afraid, so stop trying to type in the way that he talks! lol

At long last and in 2 as well. He'll never beat Novak playing like this.
Nole hasn't been playing all that well and I think we will see a different Andy tomorrow. He won't have the same nerves as he had playing Birdy, someone he has lost to the last 3 times and a lower ranked player.

They then went on holiday together! I think Novak was tired and just looking forward to that holiday.

I am very happy with this win. I had a feeling it was going to be a straight set win for Andy. I watched the 1st set and the first 4 games of the 2nd set. That's when Berdych broke Andy back and it felt like a long time coming given that Andy wasn’t broken in the first set. I had to drive to work and today you just don't want to be on the road. We are getting freezing rain since very early this morning, which made the condition extremely slushy, slippery and icy. I was driving and checking Andy’s score on my phone from time to time and at one point, I got so distracted that when I looked up, I noticed I was heading directly towards the ditch. lol. People behind me must have thought I had slipped. It happens.

Again, I am so glad Andy won. This was so important but I wasn’t really very happy with Andy’s performance overall. He’s seemed rather passive at times, stayed way behind the baseline and gave a lot of short balls to Berdych of all people. I wanted him to be careful but not passive. I wanted him to attack or at least have control of the rallies but a lot of the time in the 1st set, he wasn’t in control of it. But when kept pace and depth in line, he came up with some good shots. That was worth seeing. The comms were horrible as usual. Still, all things considered, this is a very good win. And since he’s done with his match already, he will have more time to put this win behind and get ready for the next one.

Let's get things into perspective here and remember where Andy was this time in the last two years. 
Exactly we would have given anything for him to have won last year and not gone into a slump, it's a good win in my book. He will be much better tomorrow I am sure.

Where would we be without the murraycoaster?  I had to resort to picking up dog poo in the garden after 5 match points - even that was preferable to seeing Andy lose a game he had been up 40 - 0 in!

Well done, Andy.  Not the most memorable of matches from either player but the win is all that matters - I would have bitten your hand off for a score line of 6-3, 7-5 to Andy at start of play this morning.  Onwards and upwards!

Still, a win is a win and 3-2 looks so much better than 4-1 Wink
Worlds better!

Looks like Federer prevailed as well. Novak is having a rather easy time against Tipsy.

Aileen is right, Murray is in Dubai semis for the first time. If he does play Djokovic I'll bet they won't be first up tomorrow.

A decent win for Murray, I felt like Berdych was all over the place but Murray looked very solid he has got better round by round.

Novak I still think is favourite to win the whole tournament, but he has looked like he can be beaten this week (although we said that lots last year and it came to nothing)

I do see where Emma is coming from about wanting Murray to be more offensive but I think to his credit his game plan was right be Berdych, just let the guy self implode and take care of your side of the court.

Tomorrow Murray will need to be more aggressive but if he plays like how he plays in Australia I think he has a great chance for the upset.

Tough to know who this match is bigger for, I think it is big for both guys, Novak wants to show that Murray isnt really a threat and what happened in Australia was a one off, Murray wants to show the opposite, it should be a good match to watch very physical!
