Yeah, I was expecting the worst when he fell away in the 3rd and beginning of the 4th. But somewhere in the middle of the 4th set he found his rhythm again and started contesting the rallies and forcing Djokovic to play out of his skin to win the big points. From that moment on whilst I still feared Djokovic would just have a little too much composure and experience on the big points, Murray definitely had a chance and the minute he broke after dropping serve and threatening to recreate the 2nd set Djokovic comeback I sensed it was about to happen.
Immensely proud of the lad, definitely deserved it and hopefully it can be the beginning of a few more with his mental belief now enhanced by being able to win the big one over 5 sets. Whilst the overall quality of tennis wasn't their best, some of the rallies from the 4th set in particular onwards were just incredibly tense and dramatic, and we can't forget the monster 54 shot rally.
