Cincinatti Masters 2013

Post by Guest on Sun 11 Aug 2013 - 11:02

The draw is out for the Cincinatti Masters and it has thrown up some very interesting potential matches.

First up, of course, Andy Murray will be looking to up his levels and consistency and his potential route to glory is as follows:-

First Round Bye

Second Round Ernests Gulbis

Third Round Fabio Fognini

Quarter-Final Tomas Berdych

Semi-Final Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer

Final Novak Djokovic

Back again after a computer-less 8 days - my motherboard failed. So I missed nearly all of Montreal.


Youzhny beat Gulbis, so he is the one Andy meets in his first match. Andy leads the H2H 3-0.

Welcome back Decreptitude. Yes a good result that for Murray as I'd fancy his chances far more against Youznhy than Gulbis though would still expect Murray to beat either.

Andy takes the first set 6-2 against Youzhny, and is a break up in the second at *2-1.

I was working so missed the match today. Seems like it was pretty straight forward. Mighty important that Andy goes deep here or else Rafa could take his No.2 slot in the rankings before the US Open. Apparently, Andy needs to at least reach the Quarter-Finals if Rafa wins the tournament or else Rafa will become No.2.

Hi Dec,

Nice to see you! Hope you are well Smile 

I didn't realise Andy would still be playing.

I'll see if they're showing it on bet365

No I haven't! I watch on TennisTV and can't watch two pages at the same time. Well I could, but then the screens would be too small for my ageing eyes.

Andy serving for the first set.

Benneteau can be a tricky opponent (never saw this as was working) but seemingly Murray dispatched him with minimum fuss to go through to play Berdych (who I am sure will beat Robredo). It is a big win for Andy as by my calculations it ensures that Andy will remain as No.2 seed for the US Open no matter what.

Ignore that above post - Andy has to win today to protect his No.2 ranking.

Murray in action now against Berdych and trails 3-2 but still on serve.

Murray's serve started excellently and pressured Berdych serve but he has let those chances slip and the Big Czech breaks to lead 5-3 and will serve for the first set. Meanwhile, Djokovic has suffered a shock three sets defeat at the hands of John Isner.

First set to Berdych 6-3. Murray must do it the hard way and should he lose there is a very good chance that Rafa will take the No.2 ranking from him before the US Open.

A defeat beckons for Murray but he hasn't played too shabbily. He has created chances but not taken them but credit to Berdych who has played very well.

Berdych beats Murray 6-3 6-4. Deserved win for the big Czech as he was solid in every aspect of his game whereas Murray was not. I won't worry too much as Andy exited earlier at Cincinatti last year yet still went on to win the US Open.
