Murray puts tired Djokovic to bed

Quote

Well, Djokovic didn't really turn up - but I think Murray played excellently. Ground strokes were solid, movement was almost back to it's best. Good stuff. Going into the USO with some confidence for making the quarters at least, and expectations of a bit more...

 Good posting! and sensible

Super stuff Muzza, we needn't have worried when you lost to Anderson (though I admit I did and gave you pelters!)...now on to New York.

Will be very interesting to see what shape Nadal and Nole are in physically when they get to NY.  Yet again Andy will have a great chance, but we have been here before so let's wait and see.

Well done today, another title to you.  You will still never ever get the credit you deserve from the english-based media, but we love you Andy!!

Brilliantly executed write up, NIgel, and darned good reading to boot!

 Loved the match report - made me laugh out loud.
Well done Andy.  I suspect if Andy had been playing poorly, Nole would have got through somehow.  But he realised there was no point.  And it can be difficult playing someone with an obvious injury - as Andy's opponents have known at times to their cost.  So good on Andy for doing what he had to do.   Couldn't believe it though when he said he went to the gym while they were waiting for the ceremony!  Suggests yesterday's tiredness was just  a blip.  PT I heard that he'd reduced the gluten rather than it was gluten free but could be wrong about that.
This win means Andy is joint 7th with Chang in number of masters titles, which is pretty good when you think how young he is.
And of course last time he won Cinci was when he made it to USO final.  So, onwards and upwards to Flushing Meadows Andy.  clap clap yay

Andy seemed so relaxed in his on court interview with Petch after the ceremony talking about driving to New York and how he drove to Glasgow for Davis cup. Seemed to know what he wants to work on next week and confident the preparation so far has been good. I was great to see him laugh.

Great Title, had me in stitches. great write up. Fantastic win for our Andy. All but a mere dress rehersal for the US OPEN final - more of the same please
Andy. Can anyone confirm if Andy is indeed on a gluten free diet, as this seems to be what his food management programme appears to be referred to in many reports.  yay yay
PT,the interview he gave about this diet is ,that it is very low carb,no bread,pasta all the things he was used to loading up with before  a match.he has them colour coded ,red is the bad colour and green is what he now eats a lot of.Hope this helps.

Yes but do we know which foods are classified as red, amber and green? I guess from what you say bread, pasta etc are red.  What is green?  I think I've seen it's things like chicken and fish?  And I think he's allowed to eat some red; just not much.

Just been on the BBC site and pleased to see that they've written it up in a positive manner ie not allowing Nole's injury to detract from Andy's achievement.  yay

Thanks guys for that info, perhaps they should refer to it as a reduced gluten diet - as Pasta, bread and cereal all contain gluten, and its these food groups that he appears to be cutting down on.

I've stated recently that Andy will probably never win a slam, but I honestly feel that the coming US Open is his best chance ever. Federer's effectively gone, Rafa's injured/hacked off and Djokovic has proved he's fallible. If Andy doesn't win this one, it's a Colin Montgomerie situation.

It is a bit curious to suddenly hear that Djokovic has a shoulder problem. He didn't seem to complain about it all this while because he was winning. If he had been leading in this match against Andy, I'm sure the shoulder problem wouldn't have come up.

But he knew he was outplayed and he used the shoulder excuse to bail out instead of being wiped in straight sets. At least others had the decency to accept that they are not playing well and that the better player won. Djokovic used his shoulder as an excuse to avoid saying that Andy played better than him...

It is his ego that was really injured..

I hope Andy can complete the straight set win against him in the coming US Open...

That's absolutely correct. Djokovic's ego is located in his shoulder.
