    Djokovic had no right winning that set. Can only expect his game to improve from here.

    So both players have lost the tie-break after having a handful of break points…

    That set looked very much the reverse of the first, the man who seemingly was hanging on in there ended up winning the tie break. The match really is anyone's now.

    Aaargh! Phones are starting to get busy at work now, spending more time looking at my PC than at the TV. Think I've missed 90% of the last two games.

    Murray's improvement has made this quite a dull final. No breaks, very little trouble on serve and just matching each other hit for hit. It's basically the same player hitting the ball against a wall over and over again.

    Edit: This'll be where he gets broken :o

    Murray is starting to bottle it now.

    You've done it again and pigeoned him. :D

    Usually starts much sooner but he's still the only player that 'bottles' games when he loses them. Amazingly, his opponents never bottle games when Murray breaks though :o

    Edit: At least we'll never hear how he 'definitely won't' win a grand slam event ever again :D
