    Looks like 2-1 to Novak.

    Hoping for a five setter now.

    Relax, it's a light hearted remark. I don't particularly care that much who wins although I'm not fond of Murray.

    Now he's whining at the umpire. :p

    2-1 Djokovic.

    Second game in the second set could've decided the match. 0-40 up and Djokovic fought back.

    Has Murray actually won a rally that latest more than five shots?

    Every long rally seems to have gone Novak's way.

    He's in real trouble now.

    That'll be it. Djokovic is playing too good to let this slip.

    Beginning to look mentally and physically drained. Djokovic is bullying him.

    Edit: All over. Lost it when he allowed Djokovic back in to the second set.

    I know Murray has strength and endurance but I'm surprised more players just don't try to physically kill him. Make him chase balls around like a headless chicken he's bound to hurt something after a while.

    Djokovic is the only player that can. Murray would do the exact same thing to everyone else bar Nadal maybe.

    Seems to be over sadly...

    Needs to take one break to put some pressure on but winning two breaks against Novak is just some task to take on.

    Novak has played some special tennis at times today!

    That day extra rest for Novak and the fiver setter for Murray is paying dividends here. Shame :(

    As i noted earlier in the thread...its the only Grand Slam that does this!

    I suspect they doubt they'd fill a night semi final of the women's tournament.
