    Jeb my point was he didn't up his game, he didn't beat better players than he has, he hasn't really stepped up.. the only person that stepped up is Rosol to give Murray the path.. he got to the final but it has no meaning when he lost to the first player he usually loses to.

    Great article. He called the last bit right too, with them putting 'Let It Be' over the montage.

    Can't believe you lost this final, Jordi.

    When I go to type "Murray" into Facebook, it asks me if I want to tag you.
