Murray, whose wife is pregnant back home and whose father-in-law collapsed at the weekend, was on the edge mentally during the second set. At in the fourth set, Murray chased down a Ferrer volley and whipped a forehand passed him at the net at the end of a stunning shot rally.
Ferrer will run all day but he lacks the big weapons to hurt the big players if they are on their games. Murray looked to be struggling mentally.

These two have played 17 times, and Murray has won 11 of those meetings overall and the last four straight. This will be the 12th time Ferrer and Murray meet on hard court, and three of the last six meetings have gone the distance.
I like Murray to win and cover the reasonable spread. Activities offered by advertising links to other sites may be deemed an illegal activity in certain jurisdictions.

Previous Pick. Mitch's Take
Will Murray ever win a slam. Yes, only if he gets his serving sorted out though. Definitely agree with most of that, bar him easily beating ferrer - not so sure there. Again people are claiming that murray better watch behind him because the others are catching up people have said this for two years and it still hasn't happened. Murray's record against the rest of the consistently top ten players excluding the top 3 'on other surfaces' is very good.
Delpo beat him in straight sets in the US Open final, remember? I can only think the negative comments on here about Murray are a bit of joke designed to provoke a response. Obviously inaccurate to have a go at a player that is a class above any other player Britain has ever produced and is also a consistent member of the worlds top four.
He wasn't expected to win this match, Ferrer as the world number 6 and clay court specialist, was a big favourite therefore it's nothing to do with 'choking'. Murray gives his all to his profession and is completely out on his own both in commitment and ability as far as Britain's tennis players go. I would expect him to finish his career as the victor in major tournaments, including Wimbledon, but it'll be all thanks to him as the support he receives from us Brits is poor.
Sorry Nick, it was Delpo. Murray had beaten Nadal in an epic semi over 3 days I think, so he was knackered, but it was Delpo who beat him in the final. Murray is easily the best British tennis player for a long long time. However, he is a class below Djoko, Rafa and R-Fed. I feel most of this is mental, with him also being weaker on the serve. He's incredibly frustrating to watch because of his attitude on court, he seems incredibly petulant and has no inner calm, when things aren't going his way he has no mental toughness, no reserve to draw on.
This is why i have a sinking feeling he won't win a slam. Nadal and Djoko aren't going away anytime soon. However, it won't stop me cheering Andy on! First and foremost, calling Murray 'average' is simply absurd. That is like saying David Silva is an average footballer because he isn't Messi or Ronaldo Having watched the match I was slightly disappointed with his execution, however I think his strategy was very good.
If he can work on his forehand before the US Open and bring it to something like the standard of the big 3 he will be in with a great shout of winning the tournament if he plays with similar aggression. Unfortunately he hit far too many errors off that wing today and I doubt it will be in suitable shape come Wimbledon. With regards to the semis, I can't see Ferrer beating Rafa. Think he may get a set though. The other one should be a cracker. Hopefully Roger will play a lot better than he did in the Rome semi!
What they are better than Murray is putting those defeats mentally behind them, and just getting on with the next tournament. Nadal and Djokovic do seem to be mentally stronger than Federer though when they play each other. Ferrer has Bob Hope of beating Nadal in his semi. I've watched Ferrer play Nadal twice in semi finals this year during the clay court season. Give him his due Ferrer outplayed Nadal for Ferrer's problem is he has no big weapon to hurt Nadal, to be able to hit though him.
Murray hit through Ferrer tonight, unfortunately he served poor and made way too many unforced errors. Nadal simply won't do that. Murray is a clear number 4 in the world, just not on clay. On grass and especially hard court he is comfortably better than Tsonga, who can be erratic and Del Potro, who has no Plan B when his usual admittedly impressive style isn't working.
Del Potro does of course have a major so I can see why some may think he is better. You only need to look at the number of titles Murray has won 22 compared to everyone but the top 3 to see how good and consistent he has been. In any other era Murray would have a grand slam. He would have been better than Lleyton Hewitt, Safin, Kafelnikov or any of the players of the early s and would have given Agassi and Sampras a game.
Also Murray has played tough opponents in every Grand Slaim final. Djokovic won his first Slam against Tsonga not a top player at the time , Federer against Philippoussis and Nadal against Mariano Puerta. However his game is not well suited to clay and he is not a great player on the surface.
Jonathan Overand Regarding Murray's backhand tonight, I have to say apart from the first game of the match where he hit through Ferrer with venom with it, did he ever hit through Ferrer again with. Without watching the match again I can't remember him doing so. His back hand is meant to be his best weapon, but I thought it was his least effective. I have never been one to comment on these blogs, mainly for the ridiculous comments made by others, who clearly have no idea what they are on about.
But I feel as though I need to make one here. Andy Murray is the best tennis player from these shores since Fred Perry. Bar none. Tim Henman was a good player, capable of great things on his day, but not capable of anything like what Murray is. Murray made the last 5 semifinals of majors before today, before being beaten by an exceptional clay court player in David Ferrer he is a great player on most surfaces but on the red clay is truly great.
In any other era we would have a world number 1 and multiple grand slam winner yet people with seemingly little knowledge of tennis continue to berate him. Yes he can be a marry bum but hey, so was Sampras and he won a fair few titles! He is playing in the golden era of tennis.
Federer is the best ever, Nadal is not far behind and Djokovic won't be long going them. And two or three years ago everyone was saying that Djokovic was a 'drama queen' and now look at him. Murray will win a grand slam, probably not the French, and we should be thankful that he has the ability to.
There is no one else in world tennis capable of breaking the monotony of Fed, Nadal and Djoko any time soon bar maybe Del Potro. Stop jumping on peoples back and realise we have a genuine champion in our midst, get behind him and hope he can succeed. Oh dear same old story I'm honestly fedup hearing "Andy lost another slam"..
Murray is an exciting player to watch, so do Tsonga and couple of other guys. But Federer, Nadal and Djoko has got something extra, and until Murray wins his 1st slam we have to admit he hast got it Basically let him win first, then we'll talk Media got lot to answer if Murray never wins a Slam which is increasingly becoming the case.
Its like saying Don Bradman is half the batsman if he had to play in this era, or some of the current footballers would fair so much better if they played in a different past era! Its just sour grapes! Bottom line is Murray is trying so hard, but he just cant win it at Slams. He is just not good enough. Unless the Top 3 lost their form, get injured or loses before semi final stage dont see Murray winning a Grand Slam..!
The criticisms of Murray are totally unfounded and the reason why Murray is given so much praise by the media is because people knowledgeable of the game recognise his undeniable talent and skill set. He is in an era of greatness and should be thankful to be playing with the likes of Federer, Nadal and Djock.
Murray has already proven his capacity to beat these players at a much higher regularity than the rest of the circuit. When he finally wins a Slam, which he certainly will, he would have done it against some of the greatest tennis players to have played the game. He may not win multiple titles but he will win and compete against these greatest of champions more regularly than any other players of this era and appropriate recognition should be given to this.
Murray and Del Potro have never met in a final of a grand slam. Murray has been in 3 finals and has yet to get his game hat on when he gets there and has still to beat Federer in a slam. He was so close at one point against Djok in Aussie villethis year and last year in his semi against Nadal at wimbldon was one volley at the net from gaining huge control of that match.
The game turned on that. These are the type of things that make him different at the moment from the top three. Djok is now known for his grit and lack of choking but he was a choker at times and lost his cool. He's managed to get past that and he now believes. That is Andy's next goal. To get past the moment of pretending to believe to doing it and being able to truly believe. I don't think Murray played that well today and he did put far too many forehands straight into the net from a normal rally.
I see many folks on this blog being a bit over dramatic with critism. Murray has had an excellent tennis career thus far and has made it to three more finals than Henman in slams. It's far too easy to shout from the sidelines how bad someone is when they lose. Were you saying that when Murray demolished anything that came at him at Queen's last year? He toyed with Roddick last year. Murray can win a slam, will he is a question yet to be answered!
If you remember last year against iirc Michael Berrer after he did his ankle, he stopped playing defensively, shortened the points and just basically went for winners, showing he did have power in his forehand. The puzzling question to most commentators was why hadn't he previously shown it and when he became that aggressive in his play it showed just what he was capable of. Ok his opponent did bottle it by being too nice and not exploit the injury by moving him all over the court and drop shotting him to death.
I don't think it's right for a supposed professional sports journalist to start bashing other players so carelessly. Verkerk, Sodering, Norman, Peurta, and Gaudio all deserve plenty of respect for what they achieved, and until Murray makes an RG final you can't just say he would have beaten them all no problem. Especially the Sod since he actually beat Rafa in This blog is very melodramatic and focusing on the wrong points.
I expected Lendl to teach him to serve - or at least minimise the damage from his lack of serve. Improving four things would give him a chance to be No1 in the world: 1 Consistent 1st serve. He must know all this, so I guess he's as good as he can be.
Shame, since there's no sign of anyone coming up to replace him from the UK. I think he loses points compared to last year for only making the Qf instead of the SF. Queens which he won is a tournament I believe, beating Tsonga. If Murray doesn't play then Tsonga has to get to the final at least to keep the same points from last year. Murray is over 2, points ahead of Tsonga in the points tally, so he won't be challenged by anyone from Tsonga down to Berdych n the rankings until the US Open at least if Murray's back injury turns serious.
Anyway i think we will definitely see if he has gotten anything significant out of lendl by the time the US hardcourt swing comes about and i don't think judging him on an nihilistic swing at david ferrer on wet clay is the sort of thing rational people who actually follow tennis would bother doing to be honest.
I think Jonathan has been right about one thing certainly during the clay court swing: the attitude of a murray fan should be one of optimism tinged with realism. The sheer ignorance of some people on here who think they are tennis fans. For ex. It is a common truth that I've commented on for years that Andy lacks a consistent first serve and can't always produce when he needs a big serve most, a.
It is not too long ago I wrote he should pick up the phone and ask Pete how much he wants to teach Andy how he did it. I was interested that someone commented about Tim Henman leaving it too late to get a good coach. It was something I was writing even when Tim still had Felgate and was about the same time I dubbed Tim "The nearly man" a title many of the media picked up on.
My often repeated fear is that Andy could finish up taking that title just because of the majors, which would be a shame and wrong, because his number of titles already exceeds Tim's by miles as it does most of those people the 'experts' think are better than Andy.
Still, in the end, no matter what they spout on here, he is the fourth best player in the world, his record says so and that cannot be denied no matter how much thes idiots try. I was disappointed for Andy losing to Ferrer tonight, but it has to be said that he isn't a clay court player, he has improved his clay game somewhat, but he's still far behind the likes of Nadal and Ferrer.
However he did play 4 solid matches prior to playing Ferrer in the French bar a set or two! One thing I do wonder about though is what does Ivan Lendl make of Andy when he is out on court, still berating himself and whinging. We really don't know what Lendl has helped Murray with because he hasn't really expressly said, but it is still a trait that stays with him, and in the end Lendl probably can't take the "Andy Murray" out of Andy, its all down to the man himself.
But despite the disappointment of losing out again in the French Open, it remains a slam that regretfully he will never win. Wimbledon is his next best shout, failing that the US Open, but again he needs to find that first serve, which during the clay season has been on certain occasions, shocking.
I hope he can win a slam one day, but he is cursed to playing in the era of Nadal, Federer and now Djokovic. Regardless of how he gets on in Wimbledon, should he only make the quarter finals or semis, I'll still support him, as he's a great player. Tough losses are part of a tennis player's career, so I guess you just have to keep taking the hits, and move on.
I'm sure he'll be crying all the way to the bank, as they say. He can remind himself of why he does what he does and just how "tough" it is by having a look at his bank statement - and smile about having to take these terrible knocks :. At one point, he looks as if he could not even walk. Then moments later, he was back to his normal self, and continued with many hours of professional afterwards!
I think the biggest gripe fans have with Murray is that he does not seem to be improving any more. His progress seems to have hit a wall, and he has almost accepted his status as a perpetual number 4. While it is true that it is no shame being 4th to the current three guys is it, you should at least show signs that you are willing to challenge.
Love watching Murray in the slams. To paraphrase the man himself: I support whoever Murray is playing. So far, I've never been disappointed. Not likely to be either - MUrray may have snatched a grand slam title in another era, but with the current crop of players he's a long way from slam-winning class. I didn't see the match. Sadly my schedule neither allows me to watch or play tennis anymore, but I read as much as I can, and the comments made after this match interest me.
I definately agree with Chris, Mark Blow, sos, nick and Reid. There may be other comments I have read that I support the view too. The serve is such an important aspect of Tennis. I've watched many players triumph over others from their mastery of the 'dead ball' situation. There is nothing average about Andy Murray or indeed any of the World's top Tennis players. The shots they produce against each other amaze me. The very best are simply more consistent, particularly under pressure.
The top players must play in the grand slams if they and their team feel that they are physically able. At the end of the day the player makes the final decision based on the opinion of the team that supports them. They must feel quite obliged since they have their fans and sponsors to gratify. I believe that Murray has the talent to win one of the big four.
To win regularly on the tour is an indication of this. In 7 years, since he turned pro, he's won 22 titles and been runner-up in He's slightly better in a shorter match. I think he knows himself that he needs to be fitter, since more errors creep in when you are fatigued. I'd need to study the statistics to see how he fares in set 4 of all of his matches that get that far, Nadal and Djokovic are fitter in my opinion.
I think he'd also readily admit that mentally he has some progress to make. I'd hope Lendl could help him there, he was very tough. If he wants to improve on clay he should employ the services of a spaniard, they seem to know what they are doing on the medium, get fitter and try to improve the consistency of the first serve. It is so important, particularly on clay, as it puts you in the driving seat and therein helps fatigue your opponent if they are chasing the ball.
But then some players like to chase. Nevertheless the great Champions of the past were always able to find a big serve when they really needed to win the point, even Agassi! Time will tell, I don't think Murray will be on top of his game for Wimbledon this year, but he has time to improve in time for the US Open. He's only 25 but the longer he goes without winning a major the harder it gets, and it's almost impossibly difficult in the first place? Personally I think it is what goes on in his head that is the problem, not his tennis ability, which is superb - you can't knock the current 4th best tennis player in the world for his ability.
How can a professional sportsman who has that winning desire say he is satisfied with losing in the quarter finals? He may privately believe that, but don't tell your opponents that you are satisfied with not doing better. The same happens on court; until he gets his head straight and stops showing his opponents that he is rattled he will always be giving his opponents a boost.
People keep mentioning he is only 25; how old are Djokovic and Nadal? That old cracker again. The reason every Englishman dislikes Murray is because he dislikes them? Thats it isn't it? Now why don't you go and read up on the alleged "Anyone but England" incident, and then come back and admit your mistake? I find it difficult to understand why so many people are so blatantly hostile to Andy Murray for no apparent reason. I enjoy watching him play and admire his level of excellence.
The fact that he is a fellow-Scot, who has doubtless worked hard to achieve a great deal of success at a time, when there are several supremely talented players around, also makes me proud. If some people feel unable to enjoy watching tennis being played at the highest level by someone, irrespective of their nationality, then that is a pity.
The fact that such people then see the need to share their negativity with others only reflects badly on themselves, so why do they bother doing it? No doubt Andy Murray is the best British tennis player there has been for a long time. He is alo playing at a time with a trio of outstanding players ahead of him.
However, he lost against Ferrer for a number of reasons; serve, ground stroke unforced errors forehands in the net and backhands long and a weak mental game. I put the emphasis on he lost as Ferrer did not need to a great deal to win. Andy Murray despeartely needs to get his emotions under control on court.
You should do nothing on court that doesn't contribute to winning. I do not see where the outbursts and tantrums contribute to winning. Bit disappointing, thought he'd beat Ferrer since he's a better player. Still, he was never going to get past Nadal in the semi, so nothing lost really. Wimbledon next and following either a no-show or an early exit at Queens expectations will be lower than usual. As with England at the Euros, this will surely mean victory. Unless, of course, people start seeing it that way, in which case it flips again and Murray ends up losing in the last 16 and letting down a nation.
The inconsistent quality of Andy's serving is the fundamental problem that has to be addressed if he is to win a major - irrespective of the surface. It cost him the match against Ferrer and it has been the cause of most of his failures against the top players. Murray should accept that he is a hard-court specialist, and look to maximise his efforts on either the US Open or the Australian Open. With his deep-lying game, clay and grass don't really suit his style and he can't be as free-flowing on either.
I know we all want a British Wimbledon champion, but perhaps we should just accept that this is a long way off happening, and just support Murray in his quest to win one of the two Slams he actually has a sniff of winning. Meanwhile, the LTA badly needs to assess whether it is working correctly in encouraging tennis amongst children in order to find more and better players coming through the ranks - the mere fact that Murray decided to choose his own path rather than that of the LTA shows that there are serious institutional problems within the organisation.
We have to ask whether the LTA is doing the most it can with the resources available to it, and whether it has done as much as it can in its current form. He didn't serve well enough. He didn't play the break-points well enough. Ergo: he lost.
It was hardly a shock result and I doubt Murray will lose sleep over it. After all, it spares him being dismantled by Nadal in straight sets in the semi final. In fact, all this effort from the likes of Ferrer and Federer and probably Djokovic will be to no avail. They are all playing for the runners-up spot. Ferrer was the favourite in this match. Despite the seedings, Ferrer has far greater clay court experience having played matches on the red stuff compared to just 72 for Andy.
Murray is still learning on this particular surface and personally I would have liked to see him take the pace of his shots to not let Ferrer have the rhythm he so adores. For example using the short slice that Federer uses so well. Federer's record against Ferrer? There is no doubt that Murray is a great player. He is certainly the best from Great Britain since Fred Perry but unfortunately for him he is in such a difficult era.
If he wishes to break the grand slam dominance of Federer, Nadal and Djokovic I believe there are three things that need to be worked on: 1 Forehand - he tends to hit this very flat but in my opinion he doesn't get the balance right between offence and defence.
It can also be easily broken down by the likes of Ferrer. None of the top 3 have huge serves but they all get them in consistently and set up the point. This may sound like a lot but we mustn't forget that Djokovic was always in the shadow of Federer and Nadal but he worked on his forehand and serve and found an incredible self belief and is now on the verge of the Novak slam. Not a big fan of Murray, but to suggest he is an average player is frankly ridiculous - how many Masters events has he won by beating Nadal, Federer, and Djokovic?
As has been mentioned already he just needs to play positive tennis and stop the constant moaning. A grand slam is winning all four slams. Very few players have won a grand slam. Please stop saying Murry would beat other grand slam winners.
He wouldn't. But when it comes to the majors, Murray doesn't have that extra gear to step up into that the other three have so when he faces them he's playing the same tennis he does in the Masters, but they're playing at a higher level. This comment was removed because the moderators found it broke the house rules. He's awful. Everyone else is better than him. I knew he couldn't do it, etc etc etc Let's be honest, Murray isn't as proficient on clay as he is on other surfaces, so Ferrer was always going to be favourite coming into this match yesterday, and it didn't come as much of a surprise when he was beaten by arguably one of the world's top 4 players on the this surface.
I don't agree with some of the comments earlier about Murray being cautious either. If anything, he was being overtly aggressive on some of the points, to his detriment with his forehand once again letting him down big time throughout. Murray isn't a "very average" player to quote another ill-thought out post on here, some of the more positive results in the past against the top players disprove that theory, but the French open and the clay widens the gap between him and the likes of Nadal, Djokovic and Federer.
He had a game plan yesterday, he just didn't implement it very well and his serve and forehand weren't firing. What was quite worrying was that he's still berating himself on court in a negative manner as he's always done when the chips are down, when I'd hoped Lendl's presence might have helped him channel this in a more positive manner. Murray is a very talented tennis player, no question.
It's his mental state that holds him back. He looks and plays like a petulant 5 year old far too often. It's a very dislikeable trait and that's why he is booed on court. His antics in the French Open gained him far more enemies than new fans. You want to see an improvement in Murray, he should break the shackles from his Mummy and act like a man. People are hostile towards him for a reason.
He acts like a baby! To those who say "In any other era we would have a world number 1 and multiple grand slam winner ". That is pure conjecture and opinion. I can't see how he would ever beat Sampras, Agassi, Borg or even McEnroe who were as tough as they come mentally and fantastic players as well. To the ignoramus who said the Murray is just "an average player" look past your nationalisitic hatred and just think about what you've said.
Average compared with whom? To be the no 4 world player is not mediocre; the England football team and ALL of its players - now they're average and demonstrably so. Murray is a brilliant player doing very well at his sport Are there other players that are better than him? Of course yes.
Should he try and improve to win mor games against these players? Yes he should make an effort to win more. It is not a right but through hardwork and luck he could succeed Murray is the Us best tennis player in decades so give him the support. If the English and their press dont want to provide this support, let the Scots move ahead. Henman was never half good as Murray is today, but got all the praise and support from the English public and press, and one just has to wonder what Murray has to do to get a little bit more support My message to Murray will be to enjoy your sport, and fellow pro buddies in the tour, get married when you can and have kids who you can celeberate and enjoy life with.
Overend seems to heap blind praise on Murray at every opportunity reeling out the tried and trusted "he should take heart from this performance". The flaws in Murray's game were never more obvious than against Ferrer and Ivan Lendl doesn't seem to have made a jot of difference. I also agree with Virginia Wade that Murray was being a drama queen about his injury.
Either his medical team performed a miracle or Murray has been taking acting lessons. Yes he's rubbish. Number 4 in the world and getting to the last 5 grand slam semi-finals before this one just confirms this! I'd rather British tennis was like it used to be with us celebrating a player getting to the second round of Wimbledon. We were so much better then. I do sympathise with your intention, Murray is a good player, way above average, close to elite but until he wins a major like a few of our Golfers he will remain below the top names.
The strap line of this blog probably shows why that is the case. Murray accpets he isnt as good as the top players, and therefore his destiny is written. Do you think Nadal early in his career said "Im a clay court player, I cant win on grass"? Many comments here moan about pre tournament press saying Murray will win.
I cant say Ive read all of the papers but I dont remember ever reading one who thinks Murray will win in Paris, not this year or any previous! I suspect some people dont like him so have a moan. Miserable devils! I did comment earlier here, but forgot to add in something and appears to be an issue everytime Murray loses. Although I agree that Murray is a very good player, the notion that in another era he would be world number 1 and a multiple grand slam champion is not as straight forward as it sounds.
In my opinion and many others Murray is a far better player than Henman was, and yet the same idea could be argued for Henman. There were always 3 or 4 better players than him in every tournament and his only chance of winning is if 1 or 2 of these players are knocked out or don't play due to injury. The serve isn't simply a case 'calling Pete Sampras', it is something you either have or you don't. All Murray can do is adopt Agassi's strategy and go for placement if he lacks the ability to serve fast.
Andy seems to have stalled as a player, whether this is now his natural limitations as player or he is mentally stuck in a 4th place rut is the big question. He is 25 now-not many players win their first Slam at that age. I don't agree with the line that 'he would win in most other eras', you cannot really compare other eras to this one. Federer is the only one who could actually play on all 4 surfaces when they used to be variety between them.
There is no way that Nadal would be a threat at Wimbledon from the base line like Agassi was in , Sampras would destroy him at all the Slams but the FO. Racquets have such huge sweets spots today that it is almost impossible to shank it anymore.
I really hope tennis wakes up and provides more variety in the surfaces, I am not sure why they decided to make Wimbledon like a clay court but the fact is now that the US Open is the fastest surface and even that isn't playing as fast as it used to. Lets not pretend Murray is playing in a time of 'the 3 greatest ever', he is playing in a time of slow courts which have helped his counter-punching style and better technology. I honestly believe that Federer is the one who is actually at a disadvantage as the game has slowed in the past years.
Rant over back to Murray. This is surely due to him being so passive, Murray was accused of being a player who relies on others to make mistakes instead of going for it and it appears to have been a correct call. The 'injury' did seem to flare up only when playing badly, that surely is a mental weakness, why show your opponent any signs of distress when you are still out there playing? This always leaves him vulnerable to being broken. I read a few years back that a top coach stated that there is not much difference in technique between the top 20 players, the biggest difference comes in mentality.
Murray seems to lack any sort of mental toughness needed to land the biggest tournaments, losing 3 Slam finals without taking a set may be his overall legacy unless something changes. You have to wonder how he Djokovic managed to come from being behind Murray for a year or two to then totally eclipsing him, it never looked like happening 3 years ago. Lendl will last as long as Gilbert, I don't think Andy likes being told what to do.
The frustrating thing about Andy Murray is that he should be challenging the other 3. I agree with a good deal of the informed comment that has been made over the past 18 months. The trouble with Murray is, in the early rounds is he is so aware of how good he is that he just coasts and hacks from the back or messes about with drop shots and lobs like against Gasquet.
He's a great person and great player. Nadal, chasing his 18th Grand Slam title, will face Canada's Vasek Pospisil for a place in the last Nadal's potential semi-final opponent, Argentine third seed and champion Juan Martin del Potro, also reached the second round with a , , win over American qualifier Donald Young. For Del Potro, whose career since his maiden Grand Slam triumph nine years ago has been decimated by wrist problems, it was his 30th career win at the tournament.
He next faces Denis Kudla of the United States who won his first match in five years at the tournament when he downed Matteo Berrettini of Italy , , Murray, the champion and playing just his fifth tournament of the year after undergoing hip surgery in January, last featured in a major at Wimbledon in Murray, whose world ranking has slumped to , goes on to face Fernando Verdasco, the Spanish 31st seed after seeing off the error-prone Duckworth, ranked at Like Murray, former champion Wawrinka also sat out the US Open -- in his case because of two knee surgeries.
But he showed no sign of rustiness on Monday, defeating eighth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria for the second successive Grand Slam. Wawrinka, the champion, swept to a , , victory on Arthur Ashe Stadium to repeat his opening round triumph over Dimitrov at Wimbledon. Wawrinka, the former world number three, now down at , shrugged off having to take a medical time-out early in the third set.

|Ferrer vs murray betting expert boxing||Having been forced to sit out for two months, Federer decided recently to refocus on the clay events, beginning with Monte Carlo. Movement ferrer vs murray betting expert boxing a clay court is night-and-day different from movement on the hard courts on which professionals nomes bolados para mutual betting most of the year. First and foremost, calling Murray 'average' is simply absurd. I cant say Ive read all of the papers but I dont remember ever reading one who thinks Murray will win in Paris, not this year or any previous! That's the cold hard truth, and Murray won't win Wimbledon either with his cautious strategies, so please for the love of God stop being so biased towards him. The female players are correct when they point out that the men also make noise on the court, but, for better or for worse, the higher-pitched sounds produced by the women are more offensive to many fans.
