Ah well. On to the grass, and I hope he can get a new coach sorted, who can do something about so many serves going into the middle of the net.

Andy's RG run in full:

L128: (7) Andy Murray WR 8 beat Andrey Golubev (KAZ) WR 53 (CH 33 in 2010) by 6-1 6-4 3-6 6-3

L64: (7) Andy Murray WR 8 beat Marinko Matosevic (AUS) WR 68 (CH 39 in 2013) by 6-3 6-1 6-3

L32: (7) Andy Murray WR 8 beat (28) Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER) WR 24 (CH 16 in 2012) by 3-6 6-3 6-3 4-6 12-10

L16: (7) Andy Murray WR 8 beat (24) Fernando Verdasco (ESP) WR 25 (CH 7 in 2009) by 6-4 7-5 7-6(3)

QF: (7) Andy Murray WR 8 beat (23) GaŽl Monfils (FRA) WR 28 (CH 7 in 2011) by 6-4 6-1 4-6 1-6 6-0

SF: (7) Andy Murray WR 8 lost to (1) Rafael Nadal (ESP) WR 1 by 6-3 6-2 6-1

Very disappointing today, but most of us would probably have taken a second RG semi-final and back to WR 5 at the start of RG ...

Me too.

Pity he wasn't much better today, but actually winning always seemed very unlikely, so he really got as far as most folk realistically imagined he could, and probably further than many thought.

I think better he conserves his energy than slog out another five-setter before the grass? Hopefully he'll still have the energy to retain his queens title, and then who knows at Wimbledon. The 720 points are very welcome, though

Although I would have loved to see Andy win today (and on Sunday too!) I have to confess that in the back of my mind I wondered whether such a good run would harm his grass preparation. As has already been said, if we'd been told at the start that he'd reach the SF we'd have been delighted. I only saw the second and third sets. Rafa looked awesome. Andy's first serve looked non-existent.
Hope the grass is as good for him as last year!!

I hear Nadal has just fallen apart.

You have? I assume you posted just after the first set.

He did and it's a reference to a discussion on another thread rather than really commenting on Nadal :)
