The match was enjoyable, albeit a bit random AT times, with serve refusing to dominate for extended periods. This was a contest which enthral crowd on Court Suzanne Lenglen either side of half hour rain delay. I like the way Murray play. He hit with good depth throughout and many of his backhand returns seemed to trap Ferrer in his backhand corner. The way he hit through his forehand was reminiscent of those fine matches he played in Australia. In the fourth set, much was missing, BUT AT LEAST he was sticking to his game Plan. Had he converted one of two break points which COME his way in the seventh game, he could have extended the match. World number FOUR's problem was holding serve. He lost five of his last six service Games, was broken 10 times in ALL, and five times he lost serve immediately AFTER breaking. Ferrer returned exceptionally well and Murray, try as he might, seemed unable to force the ball through heavy conditions with his first delivery. As a result, Ferrer got fully stuck into most Murray service games, using his speed and Court craft to full effect, and by my scorecard's reckoning, Murray ONLY had one love service hold in the entire match. Considering he was ONLY a few points from retiring in the second round, British number one must take heart from the way he tested such a good player in the MAJOR Quarter-Final. He now face heart-To-heart with his coaching team to decide how best to prepare for Wimbledon. He wanted to DO block of physical training to get in perfect shape for BIG one and was non-committal when asked if he could confirm his appearance AT Queen's next week. The French Open is a continuing puzzle for Murray. There are simply more players who can beat him on the surface and, if he's honest, when he saw Ferrer and Rafael Nadal in his half of the draw, he suspected title challenge was unlikely to be in 2012. He's not a member of the Top five on Clay and is he even in the Top seven? Results and logic suggest Ferrer and Juan Martin Del Potro are ahead of him, with Nicolas Almagro and Tomas Berdych pushing him hard. BUT, as he rightly points out, he would have give Gaston Gaudio, 2004 champion, good match. He'd have beat 2003 finalist Martin Verkerk and would probably have held his own against other finalists, Robin Soderling, Mariano Puerta and Magnus Norman. BUT, as it stands, Murray continue to wait for the second-week Grand Slam draw Open Up invitingly. The reality is, in this super-strong era, finest players are delivering TIME and TIME again. On other surfaces, that means Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Nadal and Murray. On Clay, that means Djokovic, Nadal, Federer and Ferrer. I've noticed how this tennis sports writer is always praising Murray even AFTER one of the most flawed performances he has ever fashion.
