    Much better service game from Andy here...could be headed to a tie break again.

    0-40 on the Fed serve...possible break chance here for Andy.

    BREAK!!! Murray serving for the match!

    Was the clawing back all Murray or Federer doing his "own worst enemy" trick? I am not sure who I want to win in all honesty - win/win situation as I like both players. If it goes to tie break - money is on Federer but I think he will lose the 5th set.

    EDIT - Never mind.

    Eek Fed about to break back.

    Skin of his teeth - tie break.

    Warnie's catch earlier was quite amusing but I've got spots in my eyes from looking at his teeth.

    I was thinking earlier that it would be nice to see this go 5 sets. Be careful what you wish for :p

    If Federer wins this he may well go on to win the match.

    *Mini Break* back! 2-2 on serve in the tie break.

    I'm watching this with my father who is having a huge rant about how the Aussies never support a Brit haha :D

    Murray is pretty dour and Fed is one of the most popular players of all time so I tried to tell him that it's hardly surprising, but he's having none of it.

    Look out for Mrs Fed's hands - they are massive!!!

    It goes to the 5th set.

    *If* (and that is a big if) Federer wins this - can he make it to 20 before retirement?

    Game effectively over. Wish I had put money on my earlier prediction.
