    Novak was strong mentally and psychically. Murray played well throughout but Novak had the power and the stamina. Survival of the fittest

    Eurosport had a nice comment describing the game...

    "Andy is making all the efforts, but Novak is in control"

    Good game.

    6-7(2) | 7-6(3) | 6-3 | Djokovic

    Murray holds 0-1 34/33

    1-1 35/34

    Murray double-faults @ 15-15

    2-1 Djokovic. Murray will have to break soon to remain in the match

    The four-hour five-set semifinal against Federer has taken a toll on Murray and it is showing

    3-1 Djokovic

    Deuce - this is a must game for Murray

    4-1 Djokovic -- that about wraps it up

    Murray's double-fault above was the critical moment

    5-1 Djokovic

    5-2 Djokovic who serves for the title

    40-30 championship point.

    2-2 Djokovic although he has double the number of unforced errors

    In the five matches where these two have split the first two sets, Djokovic is 5-0

    3-2 Djokovic 29/29

    3-3 30/30

    4-3 Djokovic

    If these two split the next 2 sets, someone will have to break because there is no tiebreaker in the 5th set at Melbourne

    A break at the 32 games mark. 5-3 Djokovic

    6-3 Djokovic

    6-7(2), 7-6(3), 1-0 Djokovic

    Momentum is swinging

    Very physical match so far with strong service games. But both are beginning to fatigue.

    1-1 26 games and 26 holds. I think the GS record is 48/48 Sampras/Agassi in 2001 USOpen won by Sampras.

    Indeed - 7-6(2), 6-7(3)

    Good match. Might come down to stamina where I give the edge to Djokovic

    7-6(2), 4-4 Murray

    Murray is doing great so far. Djokovic is getting frustrated. Could this be a replay of the 2012 US Open final?

    7-6(2), 5-5 Murray (22 games without a service break)

    Novak is in incredible form. I doubt Murray can win this one.

    It would be nice to see Andy Murray win but I think Novak Djokovic is too strong for him...hopefully I'm wrong.
