Another great match from Murray and Djokovic there, I know some don't like it but I find their matches facinating. So, so simmilar in the way they play, the changes in momentum were unreal, you just didn't know who was coming and who was going. The quality was very high too. Such a close match, as seems to be the case in all their matches. This will be the next big rivalry on the tour next year and I also predict this will be thhe final come Monday night.
Murray played an astounding first set where he didn't give Djokovic any chances at all. He got a little negative once he got broken in the second but credit to him for coming back in the third set to make it 4-4. Djokovic was playing fantastic in the last two sets and it was so, so close. The match could have gone either way and the result was based on two, maybe three points. So Murray shouldn't feel too negative about this, he can still (and should) still move innto the semi finals.
From here I think Djokovic will go through first with Murray in second, and on the other side Federer in first with Ferrer in second. Meaning the semi finals.
Andy Murray vs. Rodger Federer
Novak Djokovic vs. David Ferrer
Andy Murray vs. Novak Djokovic
That's my prediction anyways.
Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.
