It seems like only yesterday that Murray celebrated coming back from two sets down in a 5 set thriller by flexing his muscles. And today we had a repeat performance.
Not everyone likes Murray - I get that - but who could not appreciate the strength and guts he showed today in coming back to beat Jurgen Melzer in five?
As he showed back at Wimbledon, Murray may not do it the easy way - and he's not always easy to like - but he's a fighter.
And that combination of talent and guts will take him top 3 one day.
UPDATE: Match stats below. And as you can see Murray's second serve is still way too slow. It was punished by both Melzer and Llodra in the previous round.
