Miami is a really slow court. Grass has speed (even though it's not enough speed), so winners would have been more frequent. Also, Murray plays his most entertaining tennis on grass imo

No shock to see Serena winning, but at least Sharapova took a set this time.

Ferrer won the first 6-2 but is a break down in the 2nd. Murray will win in 3 imo.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Murrays playing a lot better in this set, the first was far too passive and his serve was awful, but to his credit Ferrer did play very, very well. He's being a lot more aggressive now and dictating play a lot more. I say Murray in three.

Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Ferrer has broken back. 4-4.

Now Murray breaks and is serving for the set

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

There have been a ton of service breaks in this match. They both seem to be really struggling on serve.

Still think Murray will grind out the win, he's become pretty good at that.

EDIT: What is with all the Murray double faults? I've never seen him serve this badly.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Incredible 3rd set. Just incredible.

Andy looks more and more like a World #1 grinding out matches and winning them without playing all that well.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

That match looked so, so painful. Wow, what a third set. Neither guy seemed to be able to get a handle on it, neither seemed to be able to dominate on serve either. So many grinding rallies there. Murray held his nerve, saved a match point and then saved his best for last. He went all out in the tie break, and went for everything. The sign of a real champion, saved his best for when it mattered most.

New world number two, and new world number 4...both very much deserved.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

I did say Ferrer gives Murray problems, and was a bit unlucky at the end. Congrats to Murray and his fans. Even though i don't particularly like his tennis it's always good to win matches when not playing too well, especially against a player like Ferrer.

Now he's the new number 2. I don't see him getting to number 1 though as i think Djokovic is too good across all slams, but it wouldn't suprise me if he did.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

#1 is Djokovic's and everyone knows he's the best. It's possible Murray could maybe nick it for a few weeks but it'll be Novak's spot for the majority of the next few years. Can't see him dropping off over an extended period anytime soon.
