Murray continues to sail on serve . . . putting in a lot of first serves . . . Fed seems to be slowly getting into his service rhythm . . . though no ace from him so far . . . Murray serving for set at 5:4

Set to Murray . . . Fed playing passive while Murray is very aggressive . . . Fed playing as if he wants Murray to start missing and lose confidence in his forehand . . . but that is not happening . . . Fed's balls dropping just in the service box . . .

Fed 2-1 up on serve in the second and finally records his first ace . . . Murray still serving very well and pouncing on Fed's short returns !!

Fed up 3-2 but still struggling on serve. Quite curiously . . . Fed is winning the majority of the long rallies where as Murray capitalising on short 3-4 point rallies !!

Fed 4-3 up . . . had a chance for a backhand passing shot at 30-30 on Murray's serve but netted it.

I don't like tiebreaks  :mad1:  when the outcome of a set depends on wacky points.  :insane:

It's been a good match. I'd like to see Fed get through if only because it would mean a better final.  :)

Congrats to Sid and all the Murray fans here on the board. I had hoped Roger could have pulled it out....but....oh well.

Great job tonight/this morning by Murray.
