A great report Phil.  My favourite bit, apart from the Raonic quote:- “So, nullifying the first serve was key... and boy did Murray do just that.”  Andy was marvelous.

I think it must have been the match of the tournament as they keep on playing it.

Apart from Andy's beautiful shot-making, the highlight of the match for me was watching Raonic shake his head in total bewilderment at how well Andy was playing. Raonic clearly didn't know had hit him! In the third the look on Raonic's face was priceless, as if he was thinking 'what the hell have I got to do!'.

Definitely the match of the tournament so far.

Yes, I think it must have been at this point that he realised it was he, himself, who had 'to adjust his game' rather than Andy. And he was unable to do so.
His boasting pre match comments made him look foolish.

Both boogers and Nigel's reports almost always have personal touch to it - like movie reference etc. Maybe it's a Brit thing. Hazy and MH keep it more on the professional side. I do prefer the latter though but that's just a personal choice because I personally feel a match report should be a bit more professional. A general article gives you more freedom and I guess there you can say all sorts of things, use references etc. Clydey writes pretty good but he doesn't write as much.

Just caught up with this.  I did enjoy Andy's performance.  Took the wind right out of young Milos's sails - "He did things I had no answer for, something I had not really experienced before" and  "it was simply amazing". lol  I bet that laddie got the tennis fright of his young life and hopefully he'll be a little less cocky in future.
