    hi cazza, thanks for all your posts, main reason for my attendance here
    today's from Kevin Mitchell guardian
    sample "Murray will take most satisfaction from coming through another of those rough patches known only to him and his inner voice.
    Isner, with the legs of a crane and the reach of an eagle, lacked one key ingredient early in the battle: the roar of the crowd."

    New York Times - Are These Men the Best Ever? Making the Case
    "It could be argued, and, I think, without much difficulty, that Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray represent the best — the most athletic and strongest and all-around skilled — top four men’s players to be competing against one another in the history of the game. Moreover, they have been tested these past days, as they have been tested since Australia in January, by what is without doubt the deepest pool of talent ever to be amassed on the men’s side."

    Bleacher - US Open Tennis 2011: Handicapping Odds for Each Semifinalist

    Telegraph - US Open Diary 2011: Michelle Obama serves up a treat - by Alex Willis
    "Andy Murray was at times sublime, at times surprising against John Isner, but most importantly, he got the job done to reach his fourth Grand Slam semi this year. The first two sets were superb, the third not so much, the fourth nail-chewing, but it was a telling performance from the world No 4. He's amped."

    today's report of a disappointing game kevin mitchell
    sample highlight "there were passages in this match when the unfamiliar sight of Murray at the net changed the whole mood of the contest. Remarkably for one of the game's defensive masters, Murray moved into that high-risk, high-reward zone 44 times, winning the point on 33 of his visits.

    It is a strategy he as consistently rejected throughout his career. Murray strives to contain his emotions but relying solely on control and discipline not only makes for a one-dimensional game but can suck the life out of his tennis when what he needs is a dramatic moment to lift himself to another level.

    The other dimension to playing a more expansive, even emotional, game is that it engages the crowd – and on Saturday night, large sections of the Arthur Ashe stadium were behind him."
