Murray was a victim of poor scheduling, coming into the match exhausted after playing John Isner in a tough match less than 24 hours prior. Murray also blew Federer off the court at the Olympics on grass in the final.
Also the last time Murray and Nadal played, Nadal only managed to win 4 points in the 3rd set.
So everybody says Nadal is useless after the US Open each year but when Murray mauls him in Tokyo its supposed to mean something? Seriously?
Murray's best ever performance vs Nadal was 2010 Australian Open 6-3, 7-6(2), 3-0 RET and 2008 US Open 6-2, 7-6(5), 4-6, 6-4.
Murray was great at the Olympics, but Federer had just beaten Del Potro 17-15 in the semi.
