A faultless performance so far from Andy Murray. MMake no mistake Raonic has played very well but Andy just has all the answers. He must stay focussed though.

Immense performance. Murray returned Raonic serve supremely but that word doesn't do it justice. His serve caused Raonic more problems than his did. Murray definitely back on track and lines up a quarter-final against Marin Cilic on Wednesday. Hope you all enjoyed my commentary but sorry it wasn't up to Jubba's standards.

That was great CC !!.... thanks.

Didnt see the match and the highlights are sparse atm, so your commentary was better than some curtailed video shorts.

I may move the commentaries into a forum all of its own, and they can stay there as archive material as well for reference in the future Cool

Cheers guys.

Without a doubt that was Andy's best performance of the tournament. He dealt with the severest serve on the tennis circuit quite superbly and showed why he tops returning serve stats. His focus never faltered once and if Annabel Croft says she has never seen Andy play a match without at least one dip - well that ended last night. Murray was sublime. Nice to see him put the young pup in his place especially as Raonic was coming across as really quite arrogant in the pre-match press conferences. Well done Andy.

I managed to stay awake for the match once the time was moved, but I'm like a zombie this morning. Well worth it though! Like so many big servers, Andy left Milos looking bemused, bewitched, bothered and bewildered by the end.

My only gripe about the match - Murray's words at the net with Raonic at the end. No it was nothing unpleasant and quite the opposite. According to Raonic, Andy said: 'I got lucky' (with regards serve returns). Sorry Andy but you need to stop underselling yourself and feeding crumbs of comfort to your beaten opponent. Even Raonic knew it wasn't the case as he told Andy he wasn't lucky he was great and will go far here.So why does Andy put himself down? Psychologically, it was a big win over an opponent who could become a slam contender so Andy forget the pleasantries and be more mean and nasty a la Federer.

You're absolutely right, Craig.

Yes, Jubbs, a good idea about archiving the match commentaries.
