WCA says the over under for games won is 7 for Berankis.
Berankis in 5....too talented for Murray.
This time I agree - Murray has been on the rise and has the potential to extend Berankis to four or five sets.
The rise of Tomic and Berankis.
Expect those two to clash later in the tournament when they've beaten Geriatric Man and The Amazing Haggis.
you guys crack me up... Murray in 4.
My nerves are all shot. Murray is the most dangerous player in the draw, rising slams and Olympics.
Berankis punishes Murray second serve right on the first point. Great overhead - puts the ball away.
Murray up 2 love.....Berankis rope a doping.
You are not a Murray fan. What are you doing here?
Berankis ground strokes are so crisp and powerful.
Surprising for someone his frame.
That last ball curved a lot!
Berankis has some really nice accurate strokes but he's really lacking the power, i feel like murray will eventually wear him down.
This kid is like Playstation even though he's down 4-1.
The new Davydenko?
Is it me or does this guy move around and hit the ball very hewitt like?
Berankis doesn't have a fair chance if linesmen and umpire keep cheating like this. Murray is spraying balls a foot wide of the lines and they call them good.
Is Murray's shoulder injured? Playing terrible.
2 impressive backhands in a row from berankis and that forehand was looking like being in before it hit the net. He can really hit the lines.
No, it is not.
One of the commentators spent the last ten minutes converting 16 mm to inches instead of watching the match
Looks like a bad day at the office for him then.
He's got no chance playing like this. Get the bad form out of the way early I suppose assuming he get's past this one.
The commentator on my stream is going on and on about how murrays shirt is too tight.
How did he win that set playing so sh1t?!
Murray is playing tennis of his life. Just took a set off Berankis who is much more talented than him.
Murray looks like he doesn't want to be out there.
Something not right.
Murray is overrated frankly. I love Berankis, I want to kiss him on the lips after he beats Murray.
Whats going on with the seeds today? Delpo looking fed up and losing the first 2 sets and now murray seems like he just isnt in the mood, is it hot there today or maybe very humid and thats whats getting to them?
Also this match is Murray's to lose, he needs to keep the power up, berankis isnt coping with the pace murray injects into some of his shots and is making alot of UE's
Murray playing like utter garbage but will still win
Berankis looks pretty good. Don't think he'll win, but he's competing well. Nice game.
Murray isnt taking this guy seriously, you can see it in his body language, he thinks he can play at low gear and still beat him, he cant. Berankis is playing some great shots and is very quick around the court, murray needs to turn up the level a notch.
Win or lose Berankis got some serious game! Very impressive. :shock:
Berankis tries to hit it under his legs and fails
"New balls please."
Berankis is so talented...
Height seems like a big problem though...
Ugh i cant watch this, this is the worst iv seen andy play in a long time. Alot of people dont like murray's pusher style play but normally i dont mind it coz he does unleash the brutal shots every so often but this match is just awful from murray.
If berankis could actually deliver on his break points then he could be 2 sets up by now but he cant convert the big points.
Last time I watched Berankis was at LA Open...he was miserable that day. Today he looks so calm ... seems like good talent indeed... but his forehand looks like it has tendency to break down!!
Berankis has a great serve for a wee guy.
Murray just hates to be in front.
Well you've gotta hand it to murray, playing an awful match and the oppenent is playing the better shots and moving much better but when it comes to the big points, murray takes them and berankis doesnt.
Murray 2 sets up.
common berankis take one set you deserve one at least.
He doesnt imo, murray has given him plenty of chances to break him but he doesnt take them, his backhand is fantastic but there isnt much else there to threaten the top players. Murray is just having a bad day.
Murray goes from playing like an amateur to now looking like a world beater!
If he goes on from here to win the tournament he should look back to this match and thank Barankis for giving him a good kick up the backside and getting rid of the cobwebs.
Murray's overall a stronger player yet but berankis showed his shot making ability and net game is actually superior to murray. berankis needs to be more efficient with his ground game and be more aggressive. his level dropped a bit so I don't know this match but I think berankis will be able to beat murray in near future.
I think you are giving him a bit too much credit, murray is clearly not playing anywhere near his usual best and he's still 2 sets up and a break up. Murray anywhere near his top form would be crushing him.
His shot choice is alright but he's made so many UE's in comparison to winners and his mental focus on the big points is awful, breaks murray and murray breaks straight back the next game, stepping up when he needs to.
I dont see him beating murray anytime soon.
I wouldn't judge Murray on this form. There's a reason he beat Djokovic and Federer at Olympics and USO and it's definitely not based on today's showing.
Murray is not playing awful out of nowhere. it's precisely because berankis game is not making him very comfortable. I think berankis can up the intensity level of his own game with more experience. better defense and offense. Murray's level is kinda leveling out now in his career. we shall see.
Once again, he Breaks murray and murray breaks straight back.
Also in other news, delpo is out
lol Murray's draw is so pathetic now unless Monfils beats Simon. Chardy or Seppi waiting for him in the later rounds lmao.
Berankis has played well but believe me Murray has also been generally awful.
Del Potro and Cillic both out. What's going on with the top players today?
Cilic is out too?! Wow... now here come the murray haters saying how murray's draw has got easy again.
It is like magic, though I'm rooting for him myself
The only real threat to Murray was Delpo and he is out. He is a lock for the semis now. Once he gets there, anything can happen in the next two matches based on that day's form, can't really predict much based on the earlier rounds.
Congrats to murray and his fans. he was a heavy favorite so no surprise there.
