Andy Murray produced arguably his best performance of the year, as he dominated Andy Roddick from start to finish to win 6-3 6-1.

The Scot was in electric form, swatting away Roddick's famously swift serves for winners on several occasions, and drawing the cumbersome American into the net, only to arrow winners past him for fun. However, what was most impressive about Murray's win, was his indefatigable consistency. The British number one also served up a multitude of aces, and looked extremely comfortable in every one of his service games, a trait that can not often be said of himself.

Murray was 3-0 up within the blink of an eye, and looked capable of breaking the supposedly fearsome Roddick serve at will. The four times champion looked bereft for ideas as how to string winning points together, and his uninspired approach shots were being punished by a relentless Murray. After a few more watertight service games from the Briton, it was one set to love.

The second set followed an eerily similar pattern, with Murray carving out a break early on, and his imperiousness and stature seemed to grow, as his opponent seemed resigned to defeat. At one point in the final game, Roddick quipped ''Keep it social''. Another clear indication that the gulf in performance between the two was very palpable.

Murray is through to his second final at Queens Club, and may possibly participate in an all British final. What is more likely is a match against French powerhouse Jo-Wilifred Tsonga, who has troubled Murray in the past, including a tense quarterfinal at Wimbledon last year.

That was a sublime performance from Andy. And against someone who is so good on grass and who has been playing well this week.  Made Andy R look real ordinary.   Even Andrew Castle said he wanted to clap and John Inverdale used the word that went through my head: masterclass.   It was a joy to watch.  Well done Andy Murray.  If he could play like that at Wimbledon...... clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap   clap  clap[I think that's one for each ace!]
Andy said he was going to watch James now, which was nice encouragement.

Brilliant match today - not the usual Andy Rollercoaster - it's immense when Mr Magic turns up at the start and stays till the end - so much confidence - hopefully he can carry it in to the final looks like he will be playing Tsonga - mind you if Ward can keep him out there for a couple of hours that would be good.  Can't see it though - going a bit rapid at the moment.

Well who knows as James playing much better in this set and Tsonga creaking a bit - could just take it to 3.

 :yay:What a masterclass by Andy, it was absolutly brilliant from start to finish. If he goes into Wimbledon with this confidence and mindset he can win the CHAMPIONSHIP.
I for one truly believe that  he can do it this year.

Michelle - I totally agree with you - especially if he can get some input from Darran Cahill - I truly believe that he has had some form of impact on Andy.  When you see him able to play like that he really is one of the most talanted players on the tour - there is just something mentally not clicking for him but perhaps it will soon.  I always remember an interview I read a couple of years ago and Andy said he always expected to play his best tennis from age of 22/23 onwards - cometh the hour cometh the man - c'mon Andy

Very good report, Andrew.  This really was a Murray masterclass.  If only we could see this level of consistency and quality of serving more often ...
