    Djokovic won rather than Murray lost. Probably the best tennis you have seen from a British player in the last 50 years. Good on you Andy --a performance to be proud of in a match equal to any grand slam final of recent years. :thumb:

    Apart from the 4th set that was quite a match. Best I've seen in quite a while.

    C63 (W204) and C240 (W202) - just not at the same time!
    Great match - I'm sure the final could be good too, Nadal seems to be back on form and Dj ain't playing bas either.

    Yep, one of THOSE !!!
    Faced with three fantastic tennis players above him in the rankings, Murray is always going to be the 'nearly man' until Federer retires from the game.

    The appointment of Ivan Lendl will give him mental toughness. I think we started to see the fruits of that today.

    Pity about the 4th set - Murray of old getting in the way ?

    I think once the momentum of the 4th set went against him in the first 2 or 3 games he decided to save himself for the fifth - so rather than it being a capitulation it was more about calculation and recuperation.

    However I'm trying to think when I even saw a Grand Slam winner ever do that and I can't recall. The top champions tend to fight every game regardless.

    Anyhow - my assumption before switching on was that he'd last three sets and it only tough out the first. I was well wrong.
