    Phew! What a match, still feel a bit exhausted, nerves were in shreds. Haase played great, good on Andy to come back and win. Loved Andy's come on and pounding of the chest with that I knew he was going to fight to win, he was not going to let this one slip away. cheers Well Done Andy!!

    OMG! I was keeping up with live score & bbc as best I could then it started to get late so I took the smartphone to bed.... & fell asleep at 4-3 in the final set! This morning, first thing I did was get online to see the score - what a match! There was a fab point in the 5th set which is on youtube (search for Andy Murray - Incredible defence and point against Robin Haase )

    Need to do better in the next match though!

    He's referring to the race rankings where Andy is currently 3rd, but yeah he's not being very clear there.

    Hopefully that's Andy's bad match out of the way, he needs to save as much energy as he can for the later rounds.

    Thanks Pabbers for your post. Haven't quoted as it was quite long but enjoyed reading it as it made me feel much better and even more positive. Went to bed emotionally drained and today feel great. Andy won!! He posted on his fb page after thanking everyone for support that he'll try and repay us with less of a rollercoaster. Amen to that!! Laughing I love you

    Thanks, Manaus. For one moment I thought Christmas had come early!

    Check this out- it's the match point, and yes, Murray did step back after shaking hands - to look up at the screen showing the challenge result, which was out. And it shows him leaping, so there we go! Very Happy

    It's on Youtube, just search for
    Andy Murray vs Robin Haase match point.

    Glad to see the crowd was appreciative!

    Pabbers is good... Pabbers is wise...

    Just watching a bit of it now in the study (and STILL all SQUEEEEE that Sky have enabled HD for my Multiroom box upstairs free of charge!)...

    I think one bad match is permissable. And by the way - that skin-tight top of his in the presser... veeeeryyyyy nice!

    No more bad matches Andy. That is all!

    Wow!
    My son arrived for his weekend visit during the first set tie break - hence the abrupt absence of any more posts from me! He's not as mad about tennis as me, but more than others in the family, so we both kept an eye on the match and endured the rollercoaster together!
    Well done Andy for turning it around! Very Happy
