    Djokovic is so tense. I predict he'll loosen up an make a resurgence , but Murray's still gonna take this!

    First set Murray! Djokovic's body language looks pathetic. Murray should step up on th gas right away in the 2nd.

    Murray's a beast!

    It really is crazy that Djok won't hold any slams if he loses here.

    Woop!...1st set Murray.

    I'm pretty sure Novak will tighten up on the errors in the next set..

    Yeah as usual. I don't see him coming back if he loses the 2nd. Hopefully he can recover quickly.

    Very sad showing from Nole, I'm turning off tv now, I'm still tired of that USO final clowning, don't need another one.

    I think once Djokovic changes his shoes he will start playing like a new man...I don't see him losing just yet

    Roger vs Andy - 31 year old.... old man beat Murray in both TBs.

    Novak was a mug in this TB.... Even Roger can handle Andy in TBs.... Did Roger give Andy some tips or something?

    I thought so too, but the level of ball-striking is just different, and Murray is the total package. Basically we can't have Nadal back quickly enough, we need all four of those guys so the finalists, whoever they may be, have been thoroughly tested and are right up to speed.

    I really dislike Djokovic vs Murray encounters... Horrible to see that this is what tennis has come to.

    Wow. Andy is starting to hit harder while Novak is fading. But still relatively early.

    Novak is great on the run, but his footwork isn't the greatest in normal rallies because he plants his feet way too soon.

    And then they have that point lol

    True, the top 4 are so far ahead of everyone else still (I mean the real top 4 meaning Nadal of course). Given that Nadal and Federer are both past their prime that says something about the state of the rest of the tour though. People complain about the womens game but atleast there are more than a few good players.

    This is terrific tennis, really good rallies. Still feel like Novak 2.0 has to turn up at some point. I didn't see the early part of the match is it possible Novak's tweaked an ankle or something, if he's been having problems with his shoes?

    Andy isn't even playing as well as in the SF. In fact both aren't.

    Murray needs to move in for the kill next game and get a break. Take advantage of Novak's current lack of focus.

    Murray just wont miss, which is causing Novak to take more risks.

    Is Andy's defence frustrating Novak?
