    I say Djokovic in 4, but I hope Murray in 5 sets: 5 tie breaks, each 20-18.

    Should be a great one.. I think Djokovic in 4


    Murray has nothing to lose.. Djokovic is the favourite in this match and the favourite to win the tournament, murray is not defending any more points in this tournament, he is not going to lose the number 9 position in the ranking.. Is not a grand slam a final, etc..


    So i hope to see a very agressive murray playing at his best, and if that is not enough for a win against djokovic, then congrats novak..

    I dont want to see murray running and running ,defending in every single point until djokovic miss something..

    I'm a fan of both, but objectively, this is Djoker's

    Djokovic was better in 2010 and 2011 because he beat Federer, right? Typical SpicyCurry, conveniently ignoring both Djokovic's and Federer's poor form at the USO in 2010.

    Also, SpicyCurry's typical "sets" reasoning (Hewitt took Federer to 4, so that means peak Djokovic would beat him, hurhurhur).

    Djokovic's red carpet draw to continue as he swats away this insignificant gnat of an opponent in three unchallenged sets. If Djokovic's chronic shoulder acts up, Murray might push a set to 4-6 or 5-7.

    Effing hypocrite. Wtf does Madonna have to do with tennis? Zippo, yet you obsessively post her gifs as if anyone but you gives a rats azz. As you well know, that was a shot Novak hit that was against the rules against Murray, that Novak didn't fess up to... and the ump got wrong.

    Murray returning like a best against Tsonga. If he can maintain that aggression he definitely has a chance for the upset.

    Wow! Crazy fanboy over-reaction by spicycurry at anyone suggesting a Murray win.
    Relax. It's a discussion board.

    Murray-Tsonga was pretty high quality today. I know Djokovic is playing incredible tennis, but Kohli is no Murray, and I think Murray could take this match.

    Andy has suffered enough this season. Things can only go against you for so long. Joe Willy was his first top ten win, it's time for number two.

    Seriously... You act each post made is made in a void. Posters histories are just a click away, and acting like posting history doesn't exist I'd foolish.

    Once again, the post I made specifically had to do with Murray Novak. Just because you lie and act like my post wasn't pertinent doesn't make it so. You often lie about posts or "correct" them, which is a form of lying.

    Djokovic has far greater offensive capabilities with heavier but also more penetrating shots; Murray hits flat but with low pace. Noel just happens to also be a great athlete with great defense and retrieving skills.

    Djoker in 4 sets.
    I believe Murray still needs more confidence against the top 4

    Tough quarterfinal! Murray could make it very difficult if Djokovic is not at the top of his game. I'll go with Djokovic in five sets.

    I'd like Mauresmo to win another slam but not sure Andy can deliver.

    Thanks Djokovic2011 but we need to fix more there.
    1. Novak never denied he reached over the net.
    2. Reaching over the net is LEGAL if CONTACT with the BALL is INITIATED on PLAYERS side of the net (which was what was umpire claiming all along and was reasoning for his decision), which can't be confirmed or denied from this trolling image.

    All please ignore all haters and trolls, now when we dismissed and disproved them, and lets continue talking about this match which is BTW happening waaaaay too early in the tournament due to rigged draw, but that is life.

    LOL Why do people keep repeating this when it is not true at all.

    Murray is defensive minded crafty counterpuncher, while Djokovic is offensive minded shotmaker who can also play excellent defense.

    Not similar at all.

    Djokovic an offensive shotmaker? :lol: He's a defensive baseliner.

    Doesn't seem very "defensive" to me.

    Yeah Murray is so defensive minded that he's a better fast court player than Djokovic. The mind boggles.

    You have a lack of tennis knowledge. In general, offensive players tend to do better on faster courts but there are many exceptions. Murray is quite clearly in the Lleyton Hewitt mode of counterpuncher who uses the court speed to give himself pace and has great reflexes having grown up on fast indoor courts in Scotland.

    In fact, part of the reason Murray struggles on clay is that he cannot hit thru the court...

    Murray finds it easier to redirect the pace of Djokovic's shots on a faster court, and where it is much harder for Djokovic to defend, rather than a slow Hardcourt. Murray can finish points off more quickly, rather than Djokovic out grinding him on a slower HC.
