re: Tennis Discussion Thread
I think Murray has played pretty aggressive all tournament, he's been playing like this since the Olympics. His forehand is a major weapon now whereas it was a huge weakness just over a year ago. He's going for his shot, and the majority of the time they are going in. The win should have been far more straight forward than it was, but it really showed the mental maturity Murray now has. I have no problem in saying that Andy Murray is now better than Roger Federer, very soon he'll be the number two seed I think and the Murray/Djokovic rivalry will take over.
I think Djokovic will win the final. He's playing very, very well. The way he swept aside Ferrer in the semi final was incredible and he's going to be very tough to beat. I don't think the four hour match here will have a huge bearing on Andy Murray. He's incredibly fit and has a bit of time to recover. So I think it'll be close, but think Djokovic will pip him in five on Sunday. Can't wait to watch that match.
Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.
