Still, if Murray beats Djokovic today I will eat my socks and film it.
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.

Murray is guaranteed 6th in the world rankings now. Awesome for him.
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!

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

How to best prepare socks?

fake edit: Ohh, Djoko broke Murray, there's still hope.
Murray's just messing with you. Breaks straight back.

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

Is Djokovic a gymnast of any sort? I remember when he played Nadal at Queens, he slid into a split, Jankovic style :lol

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.

Damn. Murray really IS a pusher. His main objective seems to just get the ball back to the other side of the court.

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

Good job, Andy.

Novak. Seriously? :lol Maybe he needs a stunt double when he isn't playing Federer or Nadal.
 
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.
 
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
