I know Raonic was carrying an injury but a match where he doesn't serve an ace.

Andy's anticipation is tremendous so that he regularly outaces the big servers ( who have much less anticipation ).

But even then, Andy's anticipation, Raonic carrying an injury, and clay that's some statistic and a big indication that however well Andy played played Raonic was surely pretty hampered by said injury on the day.

Andy up a break at *4-2. But I guess you all know that as you will be watching on TV. I'm jealous. I still don't have a TV at all right now. Live scores for me.

Just imagine Andy playing the best he ever has on clay! (Petch's opinion and who am I to disagree!)

It's good stuff!

Nadal playing some good stuff in the second. Fends off two break-back points to hold for 5-3*. Third set looming.

Rafa wins.
But Andy played really well for a lot of the match. Hope the tweak to a muscle isn't anything serious.

Thought he was going to fade away in the third, but really fought well towards the end, and indeed after the tweak so hope it OK. Overall that was good and Rafa very happy to win in the end.

Interesting caption under photo of Andy on the BBC website:


"Andy Murray was attempting to reach his third WTA clay court final"
