Murray v Meltzer

Andy has more points, more winners and less UEs. And he's still 2 sets down.

Melzer's serve has been constantly under siege, yet he keeps coming up with the goods on every single big point. Murray's heading out.

Andy "the Great" hard court player is getting his ass handed to him by a less than stellar clay courter.

Are you watching the match? If you are, you'd know it's anything but a beating given that every stat is in Murray's favour. More points, more winners and less UEs. Melzer has simply come up with crazy tennis on every BP.

Meltzer is no slouch. I mean, in a way he is, but he's been on the tour around the top 50 for a long time. You gotta watch out for vets like that, can't give em an inch.

and yet he is down 2 sets to none.

Like I said, murray is a supposedly "great hard court player", and he is losing to a guy who is a clay courter (and not even a good one at that).
 
Dang it. Murray serving 5-6. Cmon Murray just hold serve! (Thank god I didnt watch the first 2 sets, I only started watching at the third set 5-4)

The reason Murray has fewer UEs is that all his rallying shots are landing inside the service line at about 12mph. Meltzer has hit a few good shots but many errors.

The most tedious match of the entire tournament.

If Murray doesn't make it to at least the quarters here with the draw he has, I don't see him ever winning a slam.

Andy Murray's second serve can be quite pathetic.

Even if he comes back from two sets, how is Andy going to beat real top class players?

Maybe that's why for a number 6 player he kepts getting put out on the grandstand court.
