This should be good! Both players in great shape, but I think Djokovic has the slight advantage? I'm gonna watch it, just to see that sun shining in the background!

Heart says Murray, head says Djokovic

Murray not getting in enough first serves, but even when he does Djokovic somehow gets most of them back

I'll be watching it on mute as I can't stand Andrew Castle's Murray-shagging commentary.

Brilliant tie-break from Murray. A few mistakes by Djokovic, but even the points he won were marginal

In reply to Chris the Tall:
Awesome rallies! But Murray still has to nail all those first serves to wear down Dj! Great game regardless!

1 set all.
Looks like in both sets the better player during the main part of the set, lost the tie break

Oh, Becker has just said the same thing

It's making me feel tired just watching it.

In reply to Darren Jackson:
Djokovic has really stepped it up since the 2nd set tiebreak
Some of his returns are just incredible

A worthy winner today... Hard luck Andy.

Murray played a 5 et game against fed. few days later plays a 4 set game against joko.
Makes me wonder how clean top tennis players are? I wonder if they do 'recover' in the 90 's and 00's cycling sense?

If he'd wine Andy would have been world no. 1 - quite something. Started watching, but it was agony to watch, and nice day, so had to go out for day.

Yup, that's correct, if you stick to the strict letter of the ATP rankings. It'll take a few more wins (and a few more losses for Federer and Djokovic before Murray gets to the Number 1 slot.

Must have misheard but it'd be the icing on the cake, on top of where he's got to in the last year. People dismissed Tim Herman but he managed world no.4 for a while. John mcenroes autobiography is a good read and talks about the difference between top 4 and top 10 and no.1 and no. 2

Andrew castle invented a rule that winning two slams in a row would make you No 1. Conviently forgetting that Djokovic had won the tour finals (1500pts) and 3 masters titles (1000pts) last year. Admittedly the Olympics may have been underrated at 750 pts, but even had he won, Murray would have been about 3000pts adrift.
