Playing in 41 centigrade (106F) against an awkward opponent, well done to him.

No doubt some of the media will pick holes in his game as always. To be at the level he is with the other greats we have at the moment is stupendous. Currently 3rd in the world rankings, a position he first obtained just over 6 years ago.

And another win against Seppi, had a dark patch in the middle but switched all the lights back on again after.

Great stuff.

Was wondering at one point. Came back with an inner strength. Excellent, but I have to say Federer is my favourite.

Interesting, the bookies have Novak as favourite, Murray second and Federer third.

Good odds going for Federer if you think he stands a chance 6/1

I'd certainly never rule out Federer, he's got a determination beyond the others, reminds me of Jimmy Connors later days when his determination was far exceeding his physical capability.

We are privileged to have the group of players we have at the top, good times.

What about Dustin Brown ? he played the most exciting all court tennis than I've seen in years, what a match! The thing with Federer is that he was unbeatable for a long time but not now. Although a great champion on his day he may be just a little too old. I look forward to seeing Dustin again but apparently he 's not consistent, so it will probably be Novak and Andy again.

Murray win over Karlovic, what a nightmare opponent, good that Murray has had quite a variety of awkward players to play against.

Loads of admiration for Karlovic though.

Andy and Novac played massive guys today. They looked like dwarfs against them.

All going well, so far.

Just watched the "highlights" now which made it look like a sloppy match but is the opposite what is was.

In the UK we often believe that praise in the US can be described as 'he done good'. Whether this is true or not, some football managers mimic this and describe a player who's had a fine game by saying 'the boy's done good'. However, the great majority of UK English speakers would say 'the boy's done well', since there is a fundamental difference between the two expressions. 'Do well' is to excell at a task. 'Do good' is to perform some worthwhile action, such as a charitable act. whistle
