    Spinning it in sometimes makes it harder, but murray is level with Nole on serve he can still win the set and match I believ3

    Spinning it is fine but he is just rolling his first serve in Novak's hitting zone and he ain't level with Nole on serve. Novak has a better serve imo.

    Murray's first serve isn't anything special. Why does he drop the pace off it when he is more than capable of serving big? He ain't gonna get away by rolling serves against the best returner in the game.
    I think he does it to get his percentages up, but considering how slow his second serve is as well he's not doing himself any favours.

    Quality has dropped off in this last game. How on Earth did Djokovic not take advantage of that second serve? It was 125kph.

    Djokovic definitely has a better serve than Murray, first and second.

    Well it's pretty stupid. He is broken again.

    Stronger doesn't mean better. Murray can serve bigger than Federer but no one would say that his first serve is better than Federer's.

    Murray's first serve is more powerful and he has a nasty slice serve. In terms of pure consistency however, Djokovic generally has a higher first serve percentage and a very accurate delivery, more so than Murray. On balance that's why I'd give the edge to Djokovic's first serve.

    Murray is statistically far better on 1st's than Novak.
    Novak is statistically far better on the 2nd. (his 2nd is so strong that becker has been trying to make his first more aggressive)

    Murrays problem is his 2nd serve is total *******s. Wouldn't say he's the better returner either really, they are both great.

    These rallies are getting a bit languid. A lot of it is right down the centre play.

    This set is more crucial for Muzza you feel, would be great if he could nick this considering he was 4-1 & 5-3 down when Nole was serving for the set.

    Djokovic wasn't close to his best at the end of the set and in the TB, but still managed to win it.
