    It's like Murray is one of those defensive table tennis players, where they're only to happy to put themselves on the back foot and let their opponent smash the ball back at them.

    Only problem is it's a ****ing stupid idea repeatedly teeing up Verdasco.

    That was an almighty struggle, did well to turn it round though.

    TBH, I've put money on JJ after that Murray performance. Great comeback, but he still only played well in bursts, the UE count was utterly ridiculous.

    Gary Richardson, what a card eh?

    He's been out-muscled by Verdasco before, it's not a good match-up for Murray. Djokovic hasn't been hugely impressive either so I still think he's got a good chance this year. Lowest quality Wimbledon since Hewitt won it.

    Can't stand the man. Listened to Sportsweek on Radio 5 for the first time in years the other day, every interview was dreadful.

    Yet stupidly it is probably the best as it has been so unpredictable.

    It's an odd year on both the men and womens side. Personally I think the courts are a disgrace and is making high-quality tennis very hard, people just seem to even now still move very gingerly.

    Yet as a one-off, and hopefully it won't be repeated, I'm quite enjoying the entertainment factor of not knowing what's happening. Honestly Berdych, Haas and even Youzny have had chances in their matches against djok and Murray, but they seem to lack the belief.

    It's unfair in wiping out quality, but who said life was meant to be fair. Wimbledon and the Oz Open used to be like this quite a lot back in the day, all nice slippery fun, my fave type.

    Del Potro was seriously brilliant as well today, best tennis of the championship so far.

    Isn't he 9-1 against Verdasco now, hardly suggests it's not a good match-up really?

    True but he's ranked like 60th, he's not the quality of player you'd expect to beat Murray anyway. When he's gone out to worse players in big tournaments it's often been to big hitters.

    The way Murray was playing was perfect for Verdasco though. Loopy whipped shots meaning Verdasco can hit his big forehand. Murray's returning against him was poor, defensive and let him take the initiative. Murray also never really mixed it up, particularly with his second serves. They were nearly always ridiculously slow and waiting to be hammered - he hardly ever went for a second serve and I can only remember one decent body serve.
