agreed. also, coming off a 5-setter. i thought there was a good chance of murray beating him in straights, but he just hung around and defended like crazy. he showed an almost grim resolve out there, and let the dark side out just a bit as well. i think it made things interesting, i could get used to fed in the role of the cantankerous aging genius.
