    Murray will lose the first set and storm back and win. The guy loves playing from behind it seems. I think he will get this

    I think Murray will win in 4. Ferrer can run and run and run all day long but so can Murray.

    Plus Murray knows if he loses, Lendl will have him put down.

    [EDIT]

    I mean sent to a farm! Yes, sent to a farm, with big fields and lots of other tennis players to play with.

    But no, you can't visit him. Just can't.

    Hey man I hope you are right. Ferrer is a nice guy and great player but I have been a Murray fan for 6 years.

    I just got an email from ToursimMalaysia about the lamanche channel ferry special they are running northbound this week. Extra leg room, check in two bags for free, and a complimentary dental checkup and hairstyling.

    Thanks, when you say "trainer", do you mean a sports doctor or a coach?

    Murray breaks so he can lose the first set in his own serve. Genius.

    I own a very small in-home personal training business here in Atlanta. In other words, I go into rich folks houses and train them, lol. So it is personal fitness training. I am currently enrolled in Cornell Univ. for a certification in nutrition hopefully done in mid-July. :)

    Watching this match I think Nadal will tear apart the winner. Even Almagro gave him a tougher time than the winner of this match probably will.

    LOL you're right. He'll out push the pushers, doesn't need to be aggressive at all.

    3-2 now Ferrer. Andy getting broken in the second will probably come back to haunt him.

    Murray is frustrating. He'll have a gorgeous serve like that one, then screw himself on two straight.

    He is truly a gifted player, but so screwed up in the head.

    Murray ahead 4-3 on a break. Question is can he hold his serve? His serve's melted down at points too.

    Murray yelling at himself is never a good thing, then he plays 2 brilliant points. SO INCONSISTENT, lol.

    Yeah, that's been the problem so far. Every time he has gotten a break, he has gotten broken right back.

    And of course, 0-40 here. Great pass from Ferrer.

    Now 5-4 Ferrer. Might as well say Murray serving for the set...Ferrer's set.

    I see no confidence in Murray at all, and he's constantly yelling at himself.

    His serve is absolute ass, and I'm the first to admit it.

    Murray serving to stay in the set again, this could get interesting.

    6-5 Ferrer now. Another netter from Murray.

    Andy's best chance to win this match is probably for himself to CALM DOWN! Him throwing temper tantrums will not help, and he'll lose fast if he's not careful.
