    Berdych leads 5:2, Murray needs to be more aggressive with his FH

    My thoughts exactly. This match shows that Murray benefited greatly from the distracting conditions during his SF and final.

    Berdych is such a tough opponent, you never know whether he's going to turn up or not. But if he does, you're in for a hard match.

    This is what happens when there's no tornadoes about.

    USO 2012 was a fluke.

    Only way Tomas wins is if he serves a real high percentage. He's doing that so far.

    Well we know what kind of play is beating murray, those first serves out wide and the volley from the return.

    Murray is learning tho, slowly but surely he's starting to deal with it, if there is one thing about murrays game thats good is that he can always adapt.

    This is why Murray cannot be considered the best player in the world.

    That's not good enough in a Bo3 RR format. He'll be out in the group stage at this rate.

    Still, Berdych was lucky not to get broken here. Murray in 3.

    Nah, that's Berdych doing his very best to choke.

    Nothing to do with Muzza. 8)

    With Djokovic and Tsonga looming, this is essentially a must-win for Murray.

    Berdych has got murray where he wants him on his serve, will he go out wide and do the serve/volley or will he ace you down the middle? Decisions decisions.

    Also, murray 3 break points!

    Once again berdych saves all 3 break points and that 3rd was a killer serve. If berdych's serve dips at any point tho, you have to fancy murray, his 2nd serve is poor and as im typing that, what does he go and do, 2nd serve, murray breaks. 3-1.
