    How long I have been a moderator isn't really relevant.

    I'm also not picking on you, I was just highlighting (in my opinion) where I thought you were trolling this thread/forum. I haven't made any threats to ban you, or give you an infraction, or anything else.

    Well I for one hope that Murray beats Djokovic and then goes on to win it by beating Nadal in a 5 set thriller. But unfortunately, I don't think it will happen. Murray has the misfortune of playing in the same era as probably the 2 greatest players the game has ever known, and Djokovic could quite easily be heading towards being number 3 on the list. Murray's a great player and in another era would undoubtedly have won at least 1 Grand Slam tournament already. As it is, he could go through his entire career without ever winning one because of the 3 players ahead of him in the rankings.

    I'm pissed off because I haven't had chance to watch any of this tournament. Stupid timings and work. And I quite agree with you Toon - it'd be such a shame if he never won one - and it wouldn't be because he isn't good enough to win a Grand Slam, just that - unfortunately - he's not as good as the other 3 who are all simply incredible tennis players.

    Predictable trolling from Waggy! So what if Murray doesn't support the English national football team - he's Scottish ffs! The English do exactly the same right back.

    This will be a close semi final. Djokovic isn't playing his best tennis and Murray is looking very solid. I think Djok will edge it but it will be close, Murray has every chance of winning it though, I will be supporting him as a fellow Brit.

    Murray gets his serve broken in the first game of the 2nd set.

    Big uphill from here...

    Stepping it up against the 2nd serve though. Really pressuring Djokovic in the 4th game of this set. Just won an excellent point.

    Gets a break back! Mammoth game - over 10 mins long. Lots of deuces.
    Come on son, you've shown you can do it now!!!!

    He's got a chance - Djokovic is vulnerable on his 2nd serve. Which is adding pressure onto his first serve.

    Murray has been infuriating so far. He's played some superb points and followed it up with some ridiculously bad unforced errors. If he can get a bit of consistency he can win this.

    Thank fuck someone else has joined in! Thought I was talking to myself!

    Djokovic looks under a bit of pressure to me. Murray has to step up and take advantage. Taking 4 games in a row is a good start.

    A break up in the second now then. Interesting. He might have a decent chance in this.

    Great first point in response. Aggression against Djokovic's 1st serve. Building up the pressure!

    Fuck! If he'd gone 40-0 up then, this set'd be in the can.

    Djokovic is struggling with his first serve - keep the pressure up.
    Also, Djokovic's backhand looks vulnerable.

    Brillinat! Fucking brilliant point!

    Amazing lobbed defensive shot, then spread the ball wide to stretch Djokovic!

    Win the break son!
