So, the Princess is the first semi serious rival of Murray, who so far has cut through his draw like a knife through hot butter.

Will the 's-H champion rattle the defending champ? I don't think so, but it should be an interesting match.

H2H: 0-0

My pick: Muzza in 3

So they scheduled this in the last slot in Centre Court, after Djokimon and Willtova.

In RG, Murray's first seeded opponent was Kohlschreiber, and you saw how that went. Let's see how Andy handles this. I still expect Murray in 3.

Murray not starting great at all, first serve is weak. Second serve is worse than normal and his shots have no penetration at the momment. Extremely sluggish start from Andy, hope he gets going soon.

Murray confirms the break with a good hold. 3-1.

Those first 2 games must of just been a "tester" because he really stepped it up for the game he broke. Just shows that he CAN switch it on but sometimes he just chooses not to. Glad he switched it on today tho, better to exstinguish all hope for BA early.

Murray's chewing up Agut's serve, struggling to see how it won't be done in 3 fairly quick sets.

First 2 games were a bit shakey but from then on Murray looking in the dominant form he has shown this year at wimbledon. 6-2 first set.

What's crazy about Murray is how easily he seems to be breaking his opponents on grass. Best return game on that surface. Give him an Isner or a Raonic for christ's sake, so we can see how far he can push that skill. Murray's draw is bloody frustrating.

Murray has him on a string. Unless he makes a UE, the point is his. BA is doing nothing to take a hold of this match. This match is completely in Andy's control.
 
Murray cruising. I know his draw is pretty easy but all the same he's going to be so glad to get through this week so easily.

Anderson will be a challenge though.

BA actually switched it on for that last point and gets 1 of the breaks back and maintains some dignity. Murray was a bit too passive in that game, shouldnt relax yet. Still got another set to play at least.

Getting worried that Murray will be nice and fresh for a possible final against Nadal vero? :wink:
Nadal in a slam final is an even more formidable caliber of oger ;)

Worried about our poor Djoky. He's the one who seems a bit fragile ATM. And out of luck. He's gonna need our support!

Murray takes the second set 6-3. Would love to see a bakery product in the third, how much mental energy does BA have left i wonder?

Andy better be prepared for QF loss against Dimitrov...
Good he plays nobodies like Agut and Anderson, who barely are top 30 material, bar Agut win at grass and Anderson serve , they are average at best.
Would have been a test for Murray to meet either Berdych,Raonic, Isner and see how he does against big servers.

He has Anderson, Dimitrov, Djokovic up next.

Murray's forehand looks like a true weapon for the first time in ever.

His whole game looks dominant. Actually, he looks like a man who could waltz this tournament. How exactly is Djokovic going to beat this dude?

Murray really is in a totally different class to everyone else on grass. I don't see anyone stopping him at this year's tournament.

Is it me or has Murray's backhand drastically improved and become more a weapon since he had back surgery?
He's blasting BHs DTL like it's an easy shot without risk and hitting his BH with some ridiculously easy pace. His forehand is unusually penetrating and dominant. I'm watching this match thinking it doesn't actually matter that Murray hasn't had much success since Wimbledon 2013, his form and power and finesse and variety and return and serve and and and and and and and... looks irresistible.
