RE: Week 8 - ATP 500 - Dubai, UAE - Hard (Andy)


Andy took the second set 7-5 (just finished watching it on delayed). He was an early break up but was broken back for 5-5, then broke again and held for the match. Joao Sousa next, with Baghdatis the likely qf if he gets through Sousa. To be honest it would be a bit of a shock if he didn't.

L32 : (3) Andy Murray WR 3 beat Gilles Muller (LUX) WR 35 ( CH 34 last week ) 6-4 7-5

L16 : (3) Andy Murray WR 3 vs Joao Sousa (POR) WR 50 ( CH 35 07/14 )

After noting Floppy was at a CH at age 33, I see Muller hit his CH at age 31.

Weren't all three ATP tournaments last week won by over 30s? (Karlovic, apparently was the oldest tournament winner since Connors)

Pretty ruthless out there today, winning the first 8 games in a row and closing it out 0&2.

Yup. I couldn't get to the computer for the start of the match, so when I did I rewound the livestream and watched from the start. I do like tennistv's winding back facility! Not much of a test, to be honest, if Baggy comes through his match he should be a harder task in the quarters.

Next up for Andy will be the LL Borna Coric - Baggy retired in the middle of the 3rd set tiebreak, no idea why.

Who could forget that 57 shot rally in the 1st game of the match.  I know that BiC hasn't forgotten wink

felt quite sad when I saw Marcos had retired - he's one of my favourite players! it seems its due to cramping. the ATP website Dubai page says:


'Murray will next face lucky loser Borna Coric, who recovered from a 1-4 deficit in third set against wild card Marcos Baghdatis. The Cypriot retired due to cramping at 6-6(4/4) in the tie-break after nearly three hours of play.'

Draw has turned out decently for Andy I think. He should defend last year's Acapulco SF points and I think he has a fair chance of beating Fed if he can beat Coric.

Murray is 1-4* down in the first, and if he's not careful then this will get away from him quickly.

Oh dear, Andy seems to have picked up the wrong script.  Double break down at 1-4!!
