I had to go out immediately at the end of the first set: to be honest, I should have gone out before that! I'll watch the second set now. Nice to see Andy looking positive, it hasn't always been that way after an AO defeat.

Indeed, much better than Andy's past occasional 'prepare really well for the Aussie Open, do well there though ultimately lose, then go AWOL for a couple of months and undo much of the good work' thing.

After previous AO losses, Andy was reduced to tears and seemed to go into something of a prolonged sulk.

This year, he looked bloody furious, which is better.

IF Murray wins this he does get a useful benefit besides the cash and points is that he would (should) have beaten 3 top 10 players. That should give any player a bit of a boost and some validation of current form.

 Well he's grown up abit, and won the odd slam Now he's acting like a champion.

Andy will jump to no.3 in the world if he plays to his ranking this week.

Don't understand the constant mentions of Murray 'going AWOL' post AO (not just on here). That was in 2010 and 2011 when he was a lot younger. In-fact, this is the fourth year he's not 'gone AWOL' after the Australian Open.

Complete fallacy.

"it hasn't always been that way" and "past occasional" are clearly not fallacies.

It is very good that as he has got older and had big successes that these episodes seem confined well to the past.

First set over in a blink. Pospisil plays some nice 1-2s, holding serve easily enough then mysteriously loses focus and drops serve mid set. 6-3 Andy.

Andy wins 6-3 7-5. Some twists and turns in the second set, but he got the job done. Simon next. It might help if Andy can find where he left his first serve.

Edit - I see it was 63% - it didn't seem that high!

Certainly not a routine second set. After he lost that set point at 5-3 which he'd worked hard for with his forehand weapon, Pospisil ended up drained, losing the next four games.
