Don't you just hate when commentators start talking during matches about the next round, like it's game over (especially matches concerning Andy Murray)?
I felt like screaming when the Eurosport comms had this match done and dusted by Andy when he seemed to be racing away with the 5th set. Don't the pillocks know that, in tennis, nothing is ever certain until the last ball has been played? Have they forgotten, for example, the 3rd set of the 1993 Novotna/Graf Wimbledon final?
Oh Christ. I've written a novel.
And one that was well it was well worth waiting for (so what do you know about the red lights of the dodgiest part of Amersterdam?
) - and with a brilliant title!
It was a helluva match to have to write a report on and probably one of the bizarrest I've ever watched.
Now, god help us, we've maybe got to go through it all again on Sunday.
Typical Murray rollercoaster. Andy dug deep and pulled a win out of the bag not playing anywhere near his best, all it matters
is getting the W - regardless how ugly it was.
Djokovic, Nadal and Federer all have at least 1 really tough match at slams before somehow getting it together to win it all.
I sure hope this was Andy's 'banana skin' negotiated and gives him the confidence to advance further. Now Stan is out, the
draw is opening up nicely for our boy
When you're one of the top 10, lesser players act like a bull to a red rag and take their games to the next level to try and
make a name for themselves. It's up to the top seeds to ensure they do just enough to win.
Just glad Andy showed how much he wanted to remain in NY to fight for another day to get the chance to have his name etched
on the USO trophy.
Except Andy will not get away with such a poor serve percentage against the top players.
Glad to hear he's qualified for the WTF though.
