When Murray tried a similar trick a handful of points later [after Nishikori did one], he almost put the very future of British tennis in jeopardy. As he chased after a smash, he tried a tweener in mid-air, missed the tennis ball and almost did himself a terrible mischief with the follow-through. Team Murray winced in unison. When the slow motion replay was played back on the big screens, those of a nervous and sensitive disposition had to avert their gaze. And Muzz lost the point to boot.
