The second seed Andy Murray has been defeated by qualifier Jerzy Janowicz 5-7, 7-6, 6-2. Although the Polish No.2 actually lost to the British No.19 earlier in the year! He puts his new-found success down to a new coach and a change of racquet.
However, it was not easy running for him, as he lost the first set 7-5. The second set continued to be very serve-dominated, and it went to a tie-break, and – as we’ve seen 3 times recently – he was on a match point. But, as has been the recent trend, he threw it away, and young Pole Janowicz won the tie-break. Nevertheless, Murray won the first game of the third set in just 46 seconds, but after two hours of tennis his play suddenly became very lazy, with lots of unforced errors, which is simply not good enough someone who won the point on 82% of his first serves, and not surprising really, serving at 140mph also earned him 22 aces! This took him to leading 5-1. Before a final flourish from Murray who won a game and came close to breaking, but Janowicz fought back and won the set 6-2 on his second match point.
