Murray recovered and 5.5 to Djokovic did what he wanted to defend the order of three break points in the quid Thurs 11 The requirement for the second part of the resistance, as Djokovic broke a rally with a forehand long and coarse along the line that Murray could not handle the situation.
Djokovic had a surprisingly bold devil back into the third, always with the aggressive second Murray serve 108 miles per hour, as Murray returned. Djokovic ended the match with a forehand volley winner to go 6-5.
Finish the game requires Murray to 11 to break even pressed him back to 15-40 by hitting a volley that Murray has arrived, but not restored.
Djokovic became known as a man who has just run a marathon, which was, in fact, was actually extended. When he arrived, and Murray agreed on the network, instead of shaking hands.
"It was one of the best games I played, but was emotionally and mentally tough," said Djokovic. "I always try to make the dessert, and it was like we were breaking each other's actually easier than before."
Djokovic is considered the best returners in the world. Murray not far behind, and that would be 18 to break in service, with Murray, Djokovic breaking seven times.
What also sets this game was brutal rallies, men expanded quickly and smoothly on the court very well and are quite demanding of jeopardizing their jobs.
Murray, still seeking his first Grand Slam title, played almost at the base and aggressive than usual, especially with his forehand.He finished with 23 winners of the wings, five more than Djokovic.But Djokovic was the threat of a more balanced, with 15 winners, five back to Murray.
Murray was in the number and disappointment there is a change of attitude. Murray expressed some negativity in close games in the past, although the elastic defense Djokovic and tides have been many reasons for doing Murray.
