Yesterday, well this morning, Andy Murray was awesome. I woke up, rather handily, early on in the first set. Raonic was serving big – and he was serving well. It didn’t really matter though, Muzzle was able to give him a hard time in most of his service games.
As the match went on the ridiculous quality of Andy’s defence, and his winners, increased from the sublime to the insane. I think that, by the end of the match, a large part of the large Milos must have been glad it was over. I mentioned above that he served well, and he did, yet he won only 70% of points on his first serve – this guy has one of the top 5 serves out there. To make matters worse for Milos, Murray’s serve was working well. He won a very impressive 88% of his first service points.
Andy maintained his phenomenal quality and consistency throughout and, by the end, he had hit only 12 unforced errors but had amassed 31 winners, and did not have to face a single break point.
A 6-4 6-4 6-2 win for MAndy was a fair reflection of a comprehensive victory over a very high class opponent, he won 94 points, and Raonic won just 68, which demonstrates again the severity of his victory.
If Andy plays that well against Roger Federer,
he will win – of that, I have no doubt.
