5th and final set...no tie breaks in the Aus Open for the 5th sets at any point in the tournament
5th set 7-7...
Been an amazing match!
Novak 12-10 in the 5th.
Amazing match, well done to both! You gotta feel for Wawrinka.
Just went looking for the scores, it must have been quite some match but as you say it's a shame for Wawrinka to get so close and lose it.
His level was unbelievable...best I've ever seen him play.
In the end Novak is just a machine!
The longer it went on there was only ever going to be one winner, I feel for Wawrinka though his mind must be in bits after that
Given his unbelievably high fitness, I would be surprised if Novak isnt at least 95% recharged after a day off (which is all he will probably need for his next match)
Murray third up on court one.
Need to be in work for 8.30am tomorrow.
I think i'll pass on this one.
Simon had nothing to offer after his epic the other day - easy victory for Andy
It will be an interesting comparison to Novak tomorrow
Similarly long / hard matches with one day off inbetween
If / When Novak gets through - his semi looks pretty easy
Who-ever gets through from the other half of the draw is most likely going to be feeling how Novak feels today lol
Novak through with relative ease despite four sets, Berdych couldn't really offer much.
Looking forward to the potential Murray/Fed semi should both make it through (Since I'm off on Friday).
IMO that is a vivid display of the gulf between the top 3 or 4 and the rest
I know Berdych had a reasonably match the other day but should have given Novak a bit harsher test after his highly physical 5 hr marathon
Murray through nice and easy...
6-4, 6-1, 6-2
No sets dropped so far and must be the least time he's spent on court in a major so far.
Will be that bit more difficult from then on in!
It would be nice if he could always win his matches so easily but I think you're right, it gets harder from now.
Hopefully though the lack energy used to where he is now , should leave him with plenty in the tank for when he needs it.
Agreed, looking good so far but I don't think he's really been tested yet as he's had quite an easy route through to the semi final by his standards. His main weakness is his second serve and it's going to be put to the test by Federer assuming he gets past Tsonga.
the fact that AM hasnt yet been tested may be a hindrance when he comes up against the 2nd best player (or 3rd depending on how Nadal is viewed) in the world on Friday?
edit - At least he has made it this far.
Hoping AM can do an "Olympics" style match on Fed
Tsonga taking the match into the 5th set against Roger.
Can only be good news for Muzza.
Roger vs Andy - here we come.
