Anyone looking forward to a couple of men's semis?

I hope murray mint gets through to the final, and it will be novak in the final to pull his pants down...
should a decent match between murray and tsonga...
fed and novak could be a classic...

a semi is usually a disappointment.

Tangible excitement between Federer and Djokovic - will they be able to keep it up? :?:

Awesome match up - Federer stayed solid to the end, Djokovoc just went limp in the fourth set. :(

And now Murray and the one who looks like the golliwog have a got a semi! Image This is remarkable!!

Djokovic couldn't maintain the necessary levels of concentration, whereas you could tell Federer was thinking about playing with Murray on Sunday the whole time. His missus looked well satisfied at the end, whereas Djokovic will have some serious explaining to do.

saw bits and bobs of fed and novak..bit of a turn around that..
They have been talking on 5live about the perfect atmospheric conditions suited feds ground stroke much more, and it able him to move better, and both were playing line shots and fed was just on it much more..

great result really, i like all of them, fed novak and andy murray..i know a lot don't like murray, but i do, and i hope he wins this semi now....

and i think he has beat fed more than he has lost, but on the way fed just played, you could not look past him in the final..

I thought Murray did alright to be fair, played a lot of shots that would've won him points against most oponents but the Federer Express just kept returning them with interest. He was a bit predicable constantly playing it to Federer's back hand, which he eventually got wise to and moved round the ball to take it on his forehand. Not that his back hand isn't up to much - I do like a one-handed back-hand (hur hur), and they're a rare thing these days. The thing that lost it for Murray was his first serve collapsing after the first set, I think it was less than 50% at one stage, which allowed Federer to go after his second serve.

he was returning murrays 1st at 130 mph..That was more than his first serve speed to start with..
and then on his second like you say, he was just killing him...

Im sure Andy with have his day...he is always good in the aussie, less pressure..
just unlucky he is inthe game with the 3 players ahead of him...
