AO 2012 SF: Murray vs Djokovic

Quote

Djokovic may be hampered, but he still beat Ferrer in straight sets.

Murray will need to deliver a mega performance - really wish he had been tested in the run to the semis. Frown At least we know he hasn't peaked early like last year.

He often gets bored playing lesser players and this is usually indicated in the serve or forehand as it is when he is nervous but whenever he plays the other big 4 then he will be ON. The serve shall click into place. Maybe not right at the start of the match, but it will happen.
I think he will finally play his best and it just might be too much for Novak on  this occasion.

Come on Andy....... This is your time and you need to grab it with both hands.  There is no way that this SF will resemble the final of last year, Andy was done in by the time of the final and restricted by nerves.  This time around it's not the final, the pressure is on Djoko to prove his No. 1 ranking and retain his title and protect his points, everyone is doubting whether Djoko can have a year like he did in 2011 and he needs to prove them wrong = PRESSURE!!!! Andy like a good pan of custard is slowly but surely beginning to thicken out with no lumps and then be presented at the table as the sweet treat that nobody can resist!!!!!!  It's not going to be easy and Andy is going to have to raise his game to a new level, but he can do it and he needs to have the belief, which I think will be enforced by a certain Me Lendl.  Good luck Andy go forth, win the battle and then prepare to win the war"...........

Looking forward to this match-up a lot. I, of course, want Andy to win and this time I really believe he will. He is in a good place right now fit as a fiddle,level temperament, a much improved forehand to add to his barrowload of tennis skills and I believe that he believes.
Just slightly off topic - but how good are the top players? Topseeds all being through to the semis even although there is such a depth of talent in the best 100 players and beyond.This can only push the standards even higher.
Be rooting for you Andy. cmon yeah

I dont believe Djokovic is injured. He was all over the place, maybe just a way to lure Ferrer to being more aggressive and it worked.
Andy is going to bring up the big serve and the big forehand.

Andy must also stay on the baseline & not behind it,
mix it right up with pace, slice, shot selection and get under the Jokers skin by taking away his rythmn, keeping him off balance and making him come in from his perch.

I expect Djokovic to take this one - two tight sets and an easy one.

I don't think Novak is the problem. Federer has looked VERY good...

This is the moment of truth I think - Andy really should be able to take care of his childhood friend in a GS semi-final. The question is, can he beat a legend with 10 or 16 GSs to their name in the final on Sunday? His tennis is good enough but how mentally tough has he become. For me, despite the players in his path, this is Andy's best chance to win a major to date.

2009 Wimbledon still for me. Andy Roddick then an under-par Federer in the finals.

Roger always looks good when his opponents can't hack it.
But if Roger somehow gets by Rafa it will have taken everything he's got. Still he will have that extra day to recover, but I just dont see him pulling it off.

My gut thought was that I won't be able to watch this - I couldn't bear it if it's one way traffic.  Frown  However, I gave myself a talking to and just thought about how well Andy has played so far, and I'm not going to wimp out!  Got to believe he can do this, and take it on the chin if he doesn't. cmon yeah

What's worrying me is the fact that Djokovic hitts the lines almost in every point. His returns are so deep. If he wouldn't do it all the match long, I would say that he's a really lucky guy.

@Mark Where are you getting all those gifs. Very Happy
