And thats it, into the net on Andy's 2nd serve and he's through to the final against Novak.

Well done Andy, good job putting that match away.

As Roger goes off, he must be thinking about this point in his career. Apparently, he served 3 DF's in a row, something which I presume he has never done before. I think the day is dawning on him to start thinking about ending this facade, I wouldn't like him to do a Schumacher and dissolve into mediocrity, he has many ways in which he can contribute to tennis in more meaningful ways than trying to win another slam.

Anybody else having trouble with Firefox at the moment? Millions of "not responding" problems? It died on me again during the first set and I had to switch to Chrome - but I have nothing set up on there so I'm having to remember urls and user names and passwords. . .

Anyway well done Andy, you were simply crushing Fed's second serves - and there were a lot of them, he really had a bad serving day (I'm glad to say Wink ) More winners than Fed. Fewer unforced errors. Saint Fed having to resort to gamesmanship with the refusal to carry on because of two spots of rain. Having to wait half an hour before you had the chance to serve for the match. You came through it all - good lad!

An interesting stat from the match.

Murray winning 87% of his first serve points to Federer's 66% and 44% of his second serve points to Federer's 36%.

and on another note, Heather Watson is through to her 1st WTA final !

Firefox - Yes D every time I try to type it locks up!



Using Explorer to type this.



Great Match from Andy - I am sure Federer does not like seeing him on the other side of the net - and what about some of the return on serves - out of this world.

Should be a good match tomorrow between two good friends ( at least off the court)

606v2 Fed fans are rellay suffering from his defeat - what a shame lol

How many have said he tanked because he didn't really care about this match? LOL. He may not have been quite as bothered as if it were a grand slam, but I bet that H2H (now 10:8 to Andy) upsets his amour propre. And that he really only played here to get the 300 weeks and to try to stay #1 at the year end - well yes, but then that means he played here to try to win points to do that. . .

Great win for Andy and have brought up the point Decreptitude brings up in above post to those bitter Fed fans. I never saw the match (was working) but a win is a win. Andy wasn't at his best (serve wise) so blows one or two of their theories out of the water such as Fed won eight games playing rubbish against Murray playing at his absolute best. Fuzzy

The final under way and there have been a number of early service breaks but Andy has the edge leading 3-2 and now set to serve. His returning has been great and he really is being aggressive. Great to see.

Djoko breaks back at 3-3. Areas Andy needs to improve today are his first serve and forehand is misfiring a bit.

Murray takes the first set 7-5. He went through a wobbly patch about three quarters of the way through the set but dug deep and turned the tables and Djokovic imploded smashing a racket to smithereens.

Murray gets a possibly key break and now leads 4-3. Service holds now for Andy and he will complete a hat-trick of wins in Shanghai.

Murray hits a meaty serve to set up the winner and Murray leads 10-9. Fifth championship point.

Djoko can't find the first serve again. Djoko hanging on gamely and wqins a point he had no right to as Murray nets. 10-10

a top serve from Djoko that Murray returns long. Djoko leads 11-10 set point.

Murray first serve long. Murray battles out to push Djoko wide and he nets. 11-11.

Oh dear Murray misses a bit of a sitter hitting long and Djoko breaks to lead 12-11 set point on his serve.

And Djoko seals the point with a great serve setting him up and the set is sealed in a marathon tie-break.

Credit to Novak his fighting qualities are dazzling.

Djokovic prizes out a break point in the fifth game of the set but Murray survives and eventually holds to lead 3-2. I would like to now see Murray pressurising Novak's serve.
