Given their recent history (he beat Murray in straights at 2012 Cincy) and the form he's been showing here in Melbourne, Chardy is definitely a threat. He will serve big and hit huge forehands into the corners. Murray will need to up the ante, cut down on the high UE rate of his 4 previous matches and play at or near his best to counter this. If he does so, he should win. If he doesn't, its going to be very tough.
It's time to stop coasting and start playing like the #3 player in the world!
“Other than when Andy lost to Novak in 2011 he has always played the No.1 player in the world in the finals, those are difficult to win." (I. Lendl).
