Those last 3 games of the first set were telling. Loose points flying from Harrison = fatigue.

I expected a beat-down from Murray, ala Cilic d. Tomic USO 2011 Round 1 where the 'd.' stands for destroyed. Looks like Harrison is putting up a reasonable fight.

Who said Novak was so impressive just dropping 2 games? Well...Petzschner won his match today 6-0 6-0 6-2 to equal what Novak did!

I really enjoy this match. Harrison has a lot of talent and potential, but he also has weakness need to work out.

Yep. What would you say some of the things he can work on are?

Footwork. Watch his feet and watch Murray's. His feet are all over the place and often not even on the ground.

He needs to work out his backhand. That is the one make him always chasing the ball.
He backhand really like to drop into the middle of the court. It allow his opponent to attack. In the result, he always chasing the ball. 
It is reason I said that in other thread, he needs to improve his backhand slice and the way he hit his backhand.

You can see in this match when he uses his backhand slice. It is totally different story when he hit normal backhand.

That's an amazing shot. Unfortunately, Federer's never made so we'll never see a thread for it or replayed for a month on ESPN.

Was this the back-facing-net reply down the line that Murray eventually pushes out? That was pretty awesome. So was his drop-shot get-flick-cross court winner in that very game I believe.

Overall very impressed but let's hope this "very impressed" eventually turns into good wins soon enough. You can blame the draw, you can blame your developing game, you can blame whatever you want but solid results like the kinda Raonic has had and even bigger upsets the kind that Tomic has will eventually mean more than 'good fight!' the kind that Dimitrov and Harrison keep putting up.
