I like Tignor - he's one of the best tennis journos out there IMO, but he does seem a bit jaundiced on this subject - their AO semi was a much better match than Shanghai. The crowd at the USO and many commentators also seemed to think the USO was a bit of a classic and it also seemed that Murray 'found a way to attck Nole' in that match.
Im loving Rafa's coments though
