Murray rallies to book semi-final spot « on: February 18, 2006, 01:01 AM »

Andy Murray produced another battling display to book his place in the semi-finals of the ATP Sap Open in San Jose.
Yet another match played in true 'Andy Murray' style.  Not an easy win, but a win deserved by the 18 year old.  Despite losing the first set, Murray called on all his talents to see off Robin Soderling.

The 18-year-old from Dunblane lost the first set to Robin Soderling and was a break down in the second as he looked to be heading for a quick exit.

However, he broke back and then outbattled the Swede to level at one set apiece.

Murray then broke the Swede's serve early in the decider but Soderling hit back to level at 4-4.

However, the Briton broke again in the next game and then served out for a courageous 4-6 7-5 6-4 victory.

Murray will now face either American top seed Andy Roddick or Bjorn Phau of Germany in the last four.

Yet another match played in true 'Andy Murray' style.  Not an easy win, but a win deserved by the 18 year old.  Despite losing the fist set, Murray called on all his talents to see off Robin Soderling in 3 sets.... A win that can only boost his confidence going into the semis...    goodjob

"I started off pretty badly," Murray admitted. "I had a late-night match on Thursday and I didn't get to sleep 'til about 11 o'clock. I returned pretty well in the last two sets."


11 o'clock?!?!  Woah he must go to bed really early, well compared to all us dirty stop outs. lol


Anyway, that was a brilliant victory!  Well done Andy, keep it up  goodjob

Murray threw his racket four times in the match and was given a code violation after appearing to swear at chair umpire Norm Chryst after losing the first set.

"I was trying to get myself going because I started the match so sloppy," said Murray.

"It obviously worked. I was a little frustrated at the four or five bad calls on big points."

Soderling approached Chryst to complain about Murray's behaviour, and the Briton added: "You don't want to be unpopular on tour, but when you are on the court you have to do what you have to do to win."


This would have been a brilliant match to watch, so unfair  Crying or Very sad

I used to think Andy always started well- especially in Wimbledon but now I am thinking he starts to get better as the match goeso on. Anyone share that view?

I used to feel like that too, everything in the first part of the match and nothing towards the end. Now, he's the exact opposite, it's weird, but I noticed it too...
