Sony Open - Miami Masters

Post by Guest on Sun 31 Mar 2013 - 15:07

Andy Murray takes on David Ferrer in the final of the Miami Masters in an hours time. A lot rests on the match for Andy Murray as a win would take him above Roger Federer in the world rankings and take him back to No.2 for the first time since 2009. It would also be Andy's ninth Masters title of his career.

I really feel the key to success today for Andy is bringing an aggressive game onto court. He needs to fire off his winners first and not allow the rallies to become long and drawn out which will only play into Ferrer's hands. Passive play by Andy and I could see Ferrer snatching a win but if Andy is aggressive and serves well then he wins.

Good luck Andy.

Ferrer gets the early break himself and Murray has work to do. He has a habit of making slow starts (as commentators are saying) of late.

Andy's serve just not functioning but Ferrer playing well. Can we turn the clock back please as Ferrer leads 4-0. Evil or Very Mad

Chance again for a break for Murray but he doesn't take it. Ferrer leads 5-0 as we wait for Murray to spark into life. Fuzzy

Well at least Andy has prevented the bagel and gets a game on the board. He trails 5-1.

Has Murray woke up? Smacks a forehand winner down the line to break and trails 5-2. He will probably still lose the set but at least he is getting some momentum going.

My post-match fears have come about. Murray has allowed Ferrer to dictate the match and seals the first set 6-2. Please lord more aggression Andy and sort your serve out - loses the set on a double fault. Not good enough.

Murray with chances to break again at the start of the second set and spurns them. Ferrer leads 6-2 1-0. Is Ferrer to have his first win over a top four player in a final today at the 13th attempt?

Chances again for Murray in the third game to break and this time he obliges and leads 2-1. Has the tide finally turned? Now he must cement that break with a hold of serve. No Nails Left

And he cements his break by holding to love and leads 3-1. Errors starting to come a little more frequently from Ferrer.

Andy embroiled in a battle to save his serve which he does saving two break points and he leads 4-2 in the second set. Playing with more belief and focus now.

Ferrer battles to save his own serve as well saving two break points but boy oh boy Murray missed a fantastic chance to break again amidst an enthralling rally. Ferrer hauls it back to trail 4-3.

Absolutely key that Murray holds his serve now and wins this set. If he can do that I make him strong favourite to win the match but this is Murray we are talking about.

Murray throws away a game when leading 40-15 and we are back on serve at 4-4. Pretty disappointing watching if you are a Murray fan. He has just been below par in too many areas. Ferrer has done what he does best - run and retrieve, harry and hassle and has been aggressive at times.

Wow Murray breaks right back to lead 5-4 and will serve for the second set. He is having an on-going run-in with the umpire at changeovers about the time Ferrer is taking between serves - ooooh wait until Hawkeye gets hold of that. rofl

Murray gets a sniff of a break at the start of the third set and duly takes it and leads 1-0. Very Happy

Murray has a battle to hold onto his serve and cannot do so. Ferrer breaks back after another shabby service game from Murray. Back level at 1-1.

Murray gets his teeth into another Ferrer service game and after a lengthy rally he gets another break to lead 2-1. I am not counting my chickens though considering Andy's level of play today.

A lengthy Murray service game ends in another break of serve and Ferrer is level at 2-2 due to back-to-back double faults from Murray. Evil or Very Mad

Very wasteful.

Blimey. Ferrer throws in a junk game of his own and his broken to love and Murray is back ahead 3-2. Now for a strong service game Andy.
