Wimbledon Men’s Final 2013 Andy Murray

Andy Murray delighted the crowd by surviving the barrage of the 2.03m Jerzy Janowicz after dropping the first set tiebreak in 2 hours and 52 minutes.

The 1.9m Murray hit a clean return of serve forehand down-the-line winner on match point to make it a six out of six this Wimbledon for winning three sets in a row against his opponent.

Murray out-pointed his opponent in most departments, including 20 aces to 9, only 1 double fault to 11, 49 winners to 43, just 15 unforced errors versus 43 and by converting 5 break points from 13 opportunities to 1 of 7.

The one area that could prove to be a decisive factor in the final against Novak Djokovic was the frequency of attacking the net and success rate in doing so. Murray was  less inclined than Janowicz with 36 attacks winning 22 points at net to Jerzy’s 51 times for 32 points won at net.
