    It was like watching a Henman game.

    Edge of the seat stuff.

    Brilliant game.

    Very good- was surprised he seemed to tire at the end, given all the physical conditioning training he's been doing, but saying that he still dug in and pulled off the shots when they mattered.

    He's nto a natural born showman though - if he'd been clever he would have said the atmosphere was the best he'd ever experienced, really whipped the crowd up into a frenzy but it just seems to be his style to go understated.

    I challenge any top sportsman not to tire after 3-4 hours play.

    I thought it was an excellent game.

    True, didn't quite word that right, meant tire visibly as much as he seemed to. He seemed more knackered than Wawrinka, which I found odd given he's touted being one of the fittest guys on the tour now etc, after all the training he's been doing etc.

    Great game, can't help thinking he made it way harder than it should have been with his 1st serve going to sh!t. He'll need to improve that if he's gonna win.

    Great match. Hopefully I'll get to see some cracking quarter-finals tomorrow on centre court

    I think I heard someone mention that Murray and Wawrinka train regularly with each other, at one point it was mentioned that what must be annoying Murray the most was that before he'd hit the ball, Wawrinka had already moved into position.

    The real question now will be whether Murray can recover enough for Wednesday

    Yeah, Wawrinka said they know each other well and practice quite a lot.

    I don't understand how you can train day in, day out and then suddenly just forget how to serve... Murray got like 10 aces the entire 5-set match, compared with about twice that in previous 3-set matches.
