Default Tennis (no pictures) - Andy Murray

He was outstanding today.

Properly thumped Nadal. Perhaps not a 100% fit Nadal, but still the world No 2.

Amazing match.

Meets Cilic in the semis with revenge in mind over the US Open result and also Murray has not dropped a single set so far...

Would love him to win his first Slam here...

I would love it if he did. Would shut the brain-dead haters up.

lionheart is an unknown quantity at this point

But Nadal was clearly not fit. I will reserve my judgement until he meets Federer.

Two sets down. It looks very likely, Andy will stay Scottish and won't become British.

It won't be today that they rename the Central Court in Melbourne as the Andy Murray Court.
