• Murray beats Janowicz, back in Wimbledon final

    7/6/13 6:34 AM | Ricky Dimon
    Murray beats Janowicz, back in Wimbledon final Andy Murray ends Jerzy Janowicz's Wimbledon run in four sets on Friday. Murray is through to a second straight title match, in which he will face Novak Djokovic.

    Andy Murray is once again one win away from the Wimbledon title.

    Murray recovered from a slow start to defeat Jerzy Janowicz 6-7(2), 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 during semifinal action on Friday evening. The crowd favorite needed two hours and 52 minutes to set up a showdown against Novak Djokovic.

    Having never previously advanced past the round of 32 at a major, Janowicz did not go away quietly in his first slam semi. The 22nd-ranked Pole won the first set in a tiebreaker and even led 4-1 in the third.

    In the end, however, Murray's defense and consistency proved to be too much for the underdog. The second-seeded Scot reeled off five straight games to steal the third and he seized another break at 1-1 in the fourth. Finally on his last legs, Janowicz turned in a weak service game at 3-5 and it ended when Murray abused a second serve with a forehand winner.

    "I'm obviously delighted," Murray assured. "It was a tough match today; completely different to any matches I've played so far. He's very talented; very unpredictable. He hit huge serves out there and gave me very little rhythm. I'm very glad to get it done."

    "I'm a little bit disappointed," Janowicz admitted. "Today I didn't play my best tennis. I think this was my second worst match during this tournament. It's such a shame I didn't play my best tennis today. I was struggling a little bit with my serve. But I'm still deep down really happy. This was my first semifinal in a Grand Slam, so tomorrow I'm going to be okay."

    Murray, who finished runner-up to Roger Federer last year, is 8-11 lifetime against Djokovic. The Serb booked his spot in a second Wimbledon final by outlasting Juan Martin Del Potro in an incredible five-setter earlier in the day.

Oh dear :( cheryl has just said that TT will stop on Monday. Will really miss my fellow Muzza fans, and ed, and all the lovely real tennis fans I've been chatting to for how many years. Too numerous to mention and you know who you are anyway.
Looks like, "That's all folks." :(

This is a SAD, SAD day. We have shared so much over the years and there is a whole bunch of people I will miss badly. How about getting together on Facebook? It should be possible somehow without being stalked:-(

We need to put our heads together to find a way for the knitting circle to stay in touch.

Code word could be TEXT. TennisExTalk.

How did you guys find out that the site is shutting down? Did Cheryl send out an e-mail?

I am sad but not surprised. The site has been deteriorating for a while. The no moderation was a big sign that things were going downhill.

At least we won't be exposed to seventeen's gutter talk anymore. I guess she is going to spam the site until Monday to make sure she gets as many obscene posts as possible.

Can we go somewhere else? I only came here for the people.
