• Murray races past Brown into U.S. Open third round

    9/4/10 5:26 AM | Ricky Dimon
    Murray races past Brown into U.S. Open third round Andy Murray rolls over Dustin Brown on Friday afternoon at the U.S. Open. Murray is through to a third-round meeting with Stanislas Wawrinka.

    Andy Murray continued his impressive summer hard-court run on Friday, crushing Dustin Brown 7-5, 6-3, 6-0 in the second round of the U.S. Open. Murray needed a mere one hour and 25 minutes to set up with an encounter with Stanislas Wawrinka.

    Brown actually put on a decent show for a while, but the fun was short-lived. The Jamaican held his first five service games by playing aggressive tennis and he approached the net 20 times in the opening frame of play. With the pressure on at 5-6, however, Brown cracked and Murray converted his third break chance of the afternoon to clinch the set.

    From there it was all over for Brown. The world No. 123 actually broke once in the second set, but he serve at just 42 percent and that led to a pair of breaks for his opponent. Murray served out the second at 5-3 and did not lose a single game the rest of the way. In fact, the third set lasted only 18 minutes and saw Brown win just nine total points.

    Murray wrapped up his effort 32 winners and 12 aces while making only 15 unforced errors. Brown had even ratios of six aces to six double-faults and 24 winners to 24 unforced errors.

murray can handle both isner type and llodra type of opponents really well. and he can beat all the best players too. he'll be champ!

There is no question that Murray will beat Brown, he is too good not to.

Other than Murray, I believe Fed/Rafa/Nole can handle both isner type and llodra type of opponents too, not just Murray's exclusive rights or abilities. The top four guys can also beat each other too, as evident by their H2H against each other. I believe they all have equal chances of winning the title but there are many more matches to be played first.

Congrats to Murray for the win. Stan the Man will be a tougher opponent, though I see no upset in the making.

luckystar. murray is too good not only for brown, but also for nadal... on this surface. Against djokovic and federer, it is not so clear cut, but it is my humble opinion murray has the upper hand.

croc , 9/4/10 11:17 AM

Of course croc, we are entitled to our own opinions, but the matches have to be played before we know the results.

Before the USO final last year, who would have thought that Delpo would beat Fed in five sets to win the title, given that Fed had given Delpo a hard court lesson at the AO that same year, giving Delpo a misery three games. Though Delpo pushed Fed into five sets at the FO semi, that was on clay. The USO was Fed's backyard and he owned the place for a good five years, not forgetting that Delpo at that point had never beaten Fed before, with a miserable H2H of 0-6 against Fed. After Fed won the first set (in the final), and the second set went to 5-4 in Fed's favor, I thought Fed would have the title in his pocket if he won the second set, but we knew what happened afterwards.

We simply won't know who will win. It does not matter that Murray had beaten Rafa at the USO SF in 2008, or AO QF 2010 or even as recently as Toronto 2010. What matters is how they play the game when they meet, and the one who plays better on the day to beat his opponent will be the winner. If not why do they bother to turn up and play the matches?

luckystar. aye, of course you are right. matches are played on court... i say a lot of the fun in sites like TT is to speculate about the outcome of (eventual) matches. using one's intutition and knowledge of tennis...

croc , 9/4/10 1:23 PM

croc: I like your style!
alex: wheeeee. Apparently after the match Andy went and practised for 1hour 30! Match itself did not give him enough of a work out apparently. Shades of Rafa here!

Yeah croc, we can speculate based on our intuition, gut feeling and sometimes bias feeling too, especially where our own favorite player(s) is/are concerned; and knowledge of tennis of course.

My style is based on observations and I prefer a logical approach; sometimes I analyze and reason too much and at times logical approach towards anything may become very boring. I may have bored some of you here to death. Sorry about that.

luckystar , 9/4/10 7:47 PM

I don't think muzz will be having too many extra practice sessions next week though! It'll take 5 matches in under 8 days to take the title. Just hope no long matches. Stan might take him to 4, but hopefully not more.
