Roddick Schooled by Murray at Queens

andy murray v andy roddick

It took Andy Murray less than an hour to breeze past four-time Queen’s Club champion Andy Roddick and into his second Queen’s Club final.

The world number 4 produced one of his best ever serving displays and seemed able to pass Roddcick at will on his way to a 6-3 6-1.

Murray first won the title in 2009, when he beat James Blake in the final and on Sunday he will face Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga who ended James Ward’s hopes in the semi’s and Rafael Nadal in the quarters.

The final has been brought forward to 1200 BST because of the threat of rain later in the day.

It’s difficult to believe Murray’s performance today, it was almost flawless from start to finish, not once did his mind wonder, not once did his serve look bad and not once did he berate himself for missing a shot. Every point seemed to be won by a sparkling Murray winner, drop shots were played from the most unlikeliest position and the game of tennis looked so easy to Murray.

After the match he spoke on TV,

It was one of those days where everything is just sort of going your way. Like if there was a net cord, it would have gone my way today. If he hit a good shot, it would miss by just a little bit. Everything I was trying, every passing shot I hit, was always in the right spot. I hardly gave him a chance on anything. Sometimes against Andy you guess on the serves – I guessed right every single time today. I don’t really remember him acing me hardly in the match. I was just seeing the ball really early, and it’s difficult to do that every single day.
