If Murray hadn't been physically and even more emotionally drained from finally beating Federer in a GS, I don't think he would have even got that. Murray would have 3 by now.
I agree with that. Some will say that's Andy's fault, just as they will point the finger after the USO this year. I see it differently and see it as all as a process Andy is dealing with. He's doing pretty well at it too.
I also don't think Andy's USO form this year is anything worry about. I'm in no doubt Andy will be back and better for it. Assuming Nadal finishes the year at no.1, and realistically I can't see him being stopped now, I think it's now a race for the no.2 spot, and though I haven't looked at the numbers to work out if it is mathematically possible, I still would not be surprised if Andy finishes the year back at no.2. Andy might have had a loss of form since Wimbledon, but Djokovic has lost a lot of confidence through this year. He isn't looking much like superman just at the moment and I really think a fit, fresh Andy would have the edge on him in most situations at the moment, psychologically as much as any other way, and an awful lot of tennis is played between the ears.
I think Djokovic is suffering the effect of having Andy and Nadal breathing down his neck. In 2011 it was probably easier, because although he was pushed a few times, a couple of times Andy got very close, Djokovic was winning. That clearly breeds confidence. Now he's got two of them chasing his tail and he's clearly not comfortable. I can't comment on last night because I didn't watch and have only seen clips on the news this morning, but at Wimbledon there were times when Djokovic looked frightened. That can't help him and must do the opposition the power of good.
