Straight sets? <notbad>
It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

Scotlands Andy Murray <diva>
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

Djokovic is screwed, into the semi final and only played two full matches. Came off a 2-3 week injury before the US Open too.

Djokovic has had the easiest road to a GS final I think I've ever seen.

Stan for the win <diva>!

Fully expect Wawrinka to win considering Djokovic's injury problems and lack of playing time..looked like he struggled even against Monfils for a set too.

He did his usual fake injury timeout thing he always does.

Although tbf he apparently did have something wrong with his toenail.

Got a medical timeout before Stan served to get his toenails cut.

Karlovic was in a bit of a battle, even if he did fire down 75 aces in the match.

Just watching the replay of Djokovic-Istomin and the commentator said in the second set that everyone in the arena expects Djokovic to walk the rest of the match. <awe>

Really unexpected obviously, especially after the way he played against Murray in Doha. It's not entirely out of character for him to chuck in performances like this in a major though, he hit over a hundred unforced errors against Simon here last year and it was only Simon capitulating in the fifth that let him through, he's being punished for performances like that now.

Murray will be over 3,000 points ahead if he wins the tournament. That's no given though, he's likely to face Nishikori or Federer in the quarters who both beat him last time they met in a major, Berdych in that section of the draw too, ridiculously tough section.

Murray has to be favourite now. Then all he needs is the French Open for the career grand slam. Lord Andy Murray <divax>

Murray is the favourite definitely, gutted that Fed is in his side of the draw. The other side has opened right up.

Konta's looking more and more like a contender for the women's title, she was so impressive in Sydney beating Bouchard and Radwanska easily, she's cruised through the first three rounds, she hasn't lost a set for eight matches.

Great match between Nadal and Zverev, Zverev's going to be such a good player in a couple of years.

f***ing hell Andy.

I want Stan to win it now. Nishikori's started well against Federer, only the first game but he's played some lovely tennis so far.

Edit: And got the break.
