RE: Weeks 26 & 27 - Wimbledon - main draw (grass)


Yes the lack of comments here the norm for the early rounds can't see any problems til the 4rth round. It was almost as if Murray wanted a test in that second set.

Up to a couple of years ago, I regularly commented on Andy's matches - but I got lonely and gave up. If the matches are on TV, our TV is nowhere near the computer.

L128:  (3) Andy Murray WR 3 defeated Mikhail Kukushkin (KAZ) WR 58 by 6-4 7-6(3) 6-3

*****

L64:  Robin Haase (NED) WR 78 (CH = 33 in July 2012) vs (3) Andy Murray WR 3

The head-to-head is 4:1 in Andy's favour, with Andy losing their first ever encounter (in Rotterdam in 2008) in straight sets.  All matches have been on hard  & Andy won their most recent encounter at the US Open in four sets last year.

Pretty straight forward opening set 6-1. He didn't have to do too much, Haase not playing well so far.

Murray saves a break point to win the 9th game in a row 3-0*

Murray had a first serve % of 38% in the first set!

Maybe he's wanting to practice his second serve under match conditions a bit ;)

L64:  (3) Andy Murray WR 3 defeated Robin Haase (NED) WR 78 by 1, 1 & 4

*****

L32:  (25) Andreas Seppi (ITA) WR 27 (CH = 18 in January 2013) vs (3) Andy Murray WR 3

The head-to-head is 6:1 in Andy's favour, with Andy losing their very first encounter, the quarter-final in Nottingham, in three sets.  Of the five wins, one was on grass (L32 at Queen's in 2009), two were on hard & two on clay, the latter of those also being their last meeting (DC WG QF last year).

Two routine sets for Andy, but he looks to be on the brink of losing the third, 5-1, ad Seppi...
