What a dum-bass.

Can't put Murray away on his first overhead. I know it's windy and all, but he had a good look at the first one, just played it right back to Murray. The second was more difficult and he goes for the line.

 ..-)

Murray 2-0 sets

Some poor shots by ND, and some brave play by AM.   A 2 sets lead is unassailable.  Isn't it?

Well, he's really struggling to hold serve but at least he's up an early break. It should help loosen him up.

Murray's injured!!!   :rofl_2: :rofl_2: :rofl_2:

5-5

He's only injured when he starts losing. When he came back to win that second set, you didn't hear or see anything else about an "injury", did you! Lol

It's great to see ND's confident body language, and wonderful, aggressive play.  With this break to go 2-1 up & serving, he can hopefully make a match of it.  Serving much better too.

So worrisome on his service games.

He holds nonetheless. 4-2 Djokovic

Could it really be possible that Novak pulls another comeback victory like last year's semi against Fed ?
That would absolutely crush Murray.

In these conditions, defensive play isn't necessarily a no-no.  Going for the lines cost ND some key points in this match.
But like you, I'm a fan of aggressive play.    I just want to see ND play his game.  If this ends in a straight sets win, I'll be disappointed.

He's up 5-2 in the 3rd set, so it's unlikely to be a ss win.

ND takes the 3rd set 6-2.  His confidence is back.
But he'll have the pressure to win the 4th set.  And AM will have the pressure to win the title.
Who will crack first?

I don't like Nole's chances if he can't get a second break. He's just not dominant enough on his service games. He's bound to get broken again.

Nole 3-2
