For the record, will you be posting the video tonight or will we have to wait a little longer?

Not saying he will win, but Murray's also on good form right now.

4-3 Djokovic

Although Novak is leading right now, he's playing at about 50%; whereas yesterday, he was maybe 98% He's playing very passively right now.

Would he go higher with a win tonight? Top five would be kind of nice. :D

All with service, though, and while Murray's threatened to break a couple of times, Djokovic really hasn't.

This is ridiculous :lol Murray is clearly the better player right now (although Djokovic ups his game on the big points) and Djokovic is just on auto-pilot. This reminds me of the Gulbis-Djokovic match earlier at the French Open.

Start playing, Novak!

No, you don't need to talk and spew pseudo-stats and analysis every second. It's tennis -- just let the dudes play and we'll appreciate it for ourselves.

There was a SUBSTANTIAL difference between how Novak played the first set and how he played the 2nd game in the 2nd set. He hit the ball harder, he forced Murray up his own game and he had a lot better footwork and anticipation.

First break of the match goes to Djokovic.

EDIT: and gets broken right back :lol

Murray's just messing with you. Breaks straight back.

And in honour of Murray's Scottish heritage, might I suggest deep-fried?

Djokovic got one extremely lucky point that kept him in the game, and since then he's been on fire. If he carries on at this rate, Peru's socks might even be safe.

Technically, this is the aim of the game. If you can do it 100% of the time, you'll generally win. :D

I am surprised Murray won. I thought Djokovic would be pumped after beating Nadal.

Congrats to Murray. I think he is leading the U.S Open Series.

http://www.nbcolympics.com has a webcast of the tennis going on now (US only - sorry).

Davydenko and Gulbis are warming up.

Blake and Guccione are on serve at 4-3 in the first set.

I like watching Gulbis and so should you.

You need MS Silverlight to watch it ):

I can't believe that federer will lose his #1 ranking after the olympics. :(

But if anyone can get it back, it is him. It has been an incredible 4 1/2 years of tennis from him. :D

Oh man, I've been looking for this video everywhere. The part where he gives Federer a hug was easily the most awkward thing I've ever seen on TV. pure gold.
