While 'worn out Roger' was resting after his marathon with Delpo, what was Murray doing? Well, on the Friday, while roger was getting his massage, Murray played Novak Djokovic. Then on the Saturday, while Roger had his feet up in front of the fire, Murray played 2 mixed doubles matches - the Quarter-Final and the Semi-Final, then he played Roger on the Sunday afternoon.
