Credit to Nole v Berdych,but what happens with Berdych in big matches he had 2 breaks in the second set @ 3 love.

Djokovic responds so well to pressure. And Berdych at times goes away.

We all know Djokovic responds to pressure,Berdych seems to lose his bottle in big matches.By the way Congrats on how Potty is doing Swish,i did not think he'd still be in @ this stage on grass.Potty's serve has been great @ Wimby.

Thanks Sid, wasn't sure the pot could make it today.

Djokovic playing like a boss. down 2 breaks in the second set, no problem. his defense is out of this world.

Verdasco is 2 sets up. Murray looks so flat. I'm impressed with Dasco so far but he often finds a way to lose even when winning, so let's see what happens here.

Looks like I tuned in just in time to watch the wheels come off Verdasco.

Murray takes the third set 6:1. Verdasco is turning into a clown, completely expected. I'll never understand this guy, so much talent ... yet his chocking skills seem to be even better than his talent.

I've just found time to watch some tennis at last and see that Murray is minded to take the scenic route to the win!   :)  I'm not going to believe that Verdasco can win it  - not until it happens.  Murray seems to have settled down. What happened in the first 2 sets?

As for Del Potro & Djokovic, no surprise that they won, but I'm surprised it was in straight sets. If I can get time I'll watch highlights.

Janowicz has beaten Kubot in straights.  He'll be relatively fresh for the semi-final against Verdasco or Murray.

Remember Wimbledon 1996?
Washington-Martin SF
Krajichek-Washington Final

This is getting a 1996 feel to it.

Murray's playing chicken s**t modern tennis but Verdasco cracked. Has to restart every point 3 or 4 times and has nothing but a big FH's chance to hit or miss.

The drama arises from players getting too scared to think.

That's your drama in modern tennis, ladies.

SCAIRT :o

Come on Verdasco! I can't watch any more of Murray waiting for his opponent to miss.

3 things are sure in life, death, taxes and Dasco choking.

Murray's second serve is really bad (70-80 Mph on average) but Verdasco is not taking advantage of it.

Verdasco didn't miss this game. Held at love but he earned it.

Murray 2-3
