Just as Millman almost caused an upset take a look at what happened to Schiavone. Now that is a proper whipping from a 16 year old kid!

"On the same night young Queenslander Ash Barty, just 16, made her mark at the Hopman Cup with a 6-0 6-3 demolition of 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone, Millman's effort added more evidence to the suggestion there is life yet in Australian tennis.

Yeah.. I knew it would be high.

Ah well.. he still managed to pull the rabbit out of the hat, but it's interesting seeing all the headlines out there. Phil's headline is pretty tame when you see some of the others.

I really want to see the UE count. It must have been well into the 20's.
According to this article, it was 36.

Probably, Luke. But it doesn't matter now. At the end of the day, he got the job done.

Sorry Phil, I forgot my manners and didnt thank you for the report, so thank you for that.

MW is often polarized after your reports, however I have come to accept that as you tell it as you see it. That's your style of report and whilst I dont agree with all your opinions, I do admire you, as you get pilloried at times.

From where I sat, on the sidelines it certainly felt like the match was slipping through Andys fingers and I saw panic set in amongst MW members as they posted. Andy frustrates us all at times like this, (makes me mad!) he's a brilliant player and we just want him to do well.

Even when reading the match thread I felt like being on the all too well-known rollercoaster. We are used to it and do we want it any different (as long as he wins his match)? From  what I saw in the first set, Millman has a solid game, esp. his groundstrokes. And when lower-ranked players face a champion, their ambitions will rise, as Andy knows from the times when he entered the senior stage. Often they cannot maintain such a high level over three or five sets. But as one of you remarked,  the other top players rarely seem to have such first-round struggles.
I couldnt watch the match but tried to follow on the thread.
In bold begs "The $ 64,000 Question". It is only Andy that seems to have the ups and downs and early exits of the top players. Not everytime of course, but on a reasonably frequent basis, and which we doesnt see the likes of with the other top 3-4 players.

WHY?
As Elly said the other day, Murray is an erratic player and always has been.

Did everyone watch the match?

I watched on Stopstream.    Didn't think Andy moved too well in the 2nd set.    Millman was hitting the lines especially with his forehand and Andy seemed a step slower than usual.   Whatever the gel was it worked and he upped his game in the 3rd and that was when the gulf showed.
What  Andy doesn't seem to realise is that I had only allocated 1 hour or thereabouts for this match and have been 1 hour behind all day because he took so long to win.   But he's worth all the bother he causes me and I love him to bits.

To be fair to Phil, at least he's not bias in his reports.
So refreshing.  I can't abide all the claptrap.

I watched on bet365, 2nd set was a bit tense, but 3rd was like the Andy we know.

You'll need to be up at 6am to watch it tomorrow !!

But BOTH Semi's are on ESPN.

Didn't watch the match but happy to read that Andy got it done.

It wasn't that long ago when a young upstart named Andrew Murray took David Nalbandian 5 sets to beat at Wimbledon.

Lower ranked players do raise their games when faced with a better opponent. It happens, just like Mahut and Chardy in 2012. Andy much like Novak and Roger will bring their A game come Aussie Open.

Against someone ranked nearly 200 places below him? Against an opponent, who, until this week, had never won a match on the ATP circuit? Yeah. That's a scrape.

It wasn't as if Millman was overpowering Murray either. It was almost entirely unforced errors from Murray's racquet.

And Andy still won, so that should tell you something.
