    Yup, that. I thought it was Chris Fowler that said it too, not Cahill.

    Novak has one of the ugliest slices I've ever seen.

    Same sting, different opponent who moves runs and generally plays at a completely different level.

    I may be being a little harsh, but credit must go to Murray, he's a level above those guys especially on hard. Also both players know this could be a LONG match, and burning all their energy up early could be fatal.

    If this match gets to 1 set all, I'm going to sleep.

    Made that mistake with the Wawrinka/Djokovic match, not happening again.

    Novak lacking the footwork to make good contact with those short balls. He's still finding himself out there. Neither player playing that well at the moment.

    Huge hitting from Andy. Don't think mini breaks mean much here, just a straight up race to 7.
