http://bit.ly/S3Q80N On hard courts these two are about as dead lock as you can be: when both players are on top of their games the match will be decided by a few minute details (see: Australian Open match earlier this year). What crucial detail(s) will decide tonight's match? My nominations are: 1) First serve %: Murray must hover near 60% or else he will be under a constant barrage of pressure from Novak during all his service games. Djoko doesn't have such problems with % but he will have to be hitting all four corners of the service box corners consistently to keep Murray from returning what isn't an overwhelmingly fast serve. 2) Forehand: Both players have always been more comfortable off their backhand wing. Since rising to no.1 and five Grand Slam titles Novak has made big strides on his weaker wing: now he has not only topspin, but great length, pace, angle and disguise. While not quite Nadal or Federer level, his forehand play from the ad court is extremely efficient. Murray has made strides too, but his forehand is still probably a bit more limited than Novak's. I don't feel his motion is suited to hitting huge inside out forehands, and besides is almost gratuitous when his two hander is so good. I don't think his forehand down the line has improved as much as it should have; but his inside-in forehand no longer gets him in trouble by landing short and inviting a cross-court reply into open court. The onus is firmly on Murray to serve and hit his forehand with the kind of attacking intent he usually reserves for emergency situations and/or comfortable victories. Of course if he can create the openings in rallies and come forward he has an advantage over Djokovic in his superior volleying ability and overall greater touch. Thoughts?
