In the USO final, the conditions completely disrupted and randomized the game, nullifying Djokovic's advantage in class. That match does not indicate any "new level" of Murray that would "suddenly drop" after the USO.
There was no drop, as there had been no raise.
So what happened at the Olympic semi final?
What's the excuse there?
