I think this match will go 5 for sure. I think that Murray has a lot of tactical skills, but I feel as the match progresses Nadal's mental toughness will give him the edge. In Grand Slam matches,it is all about mental toughness and I don't see Murray coming up strong against Nadal in this category. He will have to play spectacular to beat Nadal. One caveat though, the more aggressive player will win.
I have watched both Nadals matches and Murrays. I think Nadal is actually back to his best and Murray looks his normal self with a little more pop and aggressive on his forehand.
Nadal has done pretty much as expected as has Murray but with Murray my problem lies with his serve and his mid court returns on his forehand. If he continues agains Nadal in this vain he will lose I have no doubt. What has got to be taken into account is Murray is being more aggressive and yet still only had 8 unforced errors in his match against Isner. yet I still think he cant/wont take this game to Nadal. I think he will go into safe mode. The last few games (beginning of last season) they were amazing matches very close with Murray just coming out on top.
Im going for that again as super confident he is and with his new 'Im a winner' Adidas kit he looks like a winner. I think it will be close, very close but I think Murray will take this in 4, if it goes to 5 then its nadals.
I have 7 of the last 8 in the brackets and Ive gone for Davy to beat Fed, Nole to bet Tsonga, Arod to beat Cilic (i had DP) and Murray to beat Nadal with a Dav v Murray final. Im still going with this but I think think Cilic will win.
Go Murray Go Murray Go Murray !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
murray in 5. i picked him to beat nadal in the quarters in the BT competition, so gotta stick with it! :) plus, murray's wins thus far have been more convincing, and like mark first said, he's taken the recent head-to-heads....
Well, I guess that is Murray in 3... err, 2 and a half.
I was sensing weakness from Nadal - sad to see him hurting again. I wonder if his knee will ever be the same.
Murray is rocking it - playing championship level tennis. Should be way more rested than Cilic (who I also picked by the way, patting myself on the back.) Looking past Cilic (I know I shouldn't do this) He'll probably have Fed, Djoker or Davy in the final. I think his chances are good against any of them, especially if they wear each other down.
