Every Murray match is now worthy of a match thread as people speculate "Can he win one more?"
I really get angry at some of the press reporters at Andy's post-match conference though, sir. They keep on asking him silly annoying question again and again, "when will you retire?"

Followup question: how many games will Andy win in total? I'm thinking five, 6-4 6-1. I hope I'm wrong about the score and the winner.

Last time they met (2017 AO) Murray killed Rublev in straight sets including a bagel. I guess what a difference 4 years makes!
Rublev was still a teenager then. Rublev has become a powerhouse type player while Murray is still a counterpuncher and older, slower tennis player.

Both players were always that. It's just that Rublev has become better with experience and physically stronger too whilst the reverse has become true for Murray since his hip replacement surgery.

Looks like Rublev is in shock of playing Murray! Rublev may have take a game or two to get back to the swing of things.
