- 

Murray 7-5 6-3 4-6 1-0 Kyrgios. Well, that revival was short lived. After a bathroom break, wacky play and a stalemate for much of set three, Kyrgios throws down a series of errors and limply hands over the break to begin set 4.

 

Murray 7-5 6-3 4-6 Kyrgios. Kyrgios is loose and bouncy, and two brilliant forehands seemingly shock Murray into a double fault and a terribly missed forehand. Out of nowhere, four sets it is.

- 

Murray 7-5 6-3 3-4 Kyrgios. With every change of ends, Kyrgios' game count in set three is becoming increasingly dangerous. Despite the struggles and the attitude, the Aussie has quietly stuck around in this third set and he could well look to make something happen.

- 

Murray 7-5 6-3 2-3 Kyrgios. A pair of scarily efficient games end with both men almost sprinting between, points and both men notch up a rare simple hold each. Even as he sulks and when he looks like he wants to be anywhere else, that serve can at least keep him in contention.

-

Murray 7-5 6-3 1-2 Kyrgios. After snatching the break, Kyrgios decides it's best to hand the initiative back over. Four errors, and that's about that. Back on serve they go.

- 

Murray 7-5 5-2 Kyrgios. So many tough games in this set, and Murray's attempts to consolidate his break meet similar hurdles.

Despite the scenic route through, it never truly felt like a game Murray was ever going to allow himself to lose.

-

- 

Murray 7-5 1-0 Kyrgios. A new set, but the same Murray. The scot calmly navigates another hold of serve with his combination of solid serving and consistency off the ground.

-

Murray 7-5 Kyrgios. Quite the masterclass from Mr Murray. Everything deep and every ball consistent, he lengthens the points and shakes out a few errors from the Aussie.

-

Murray 5-5 Kyrgios. It looks for a second like slow and steady is about to win the race as Murray shuffles to double set point, only for Kyrgios to brilliantly save both.

- 

Murray 5-4 Kyrgios. We're finally getting to the business end of the set, but Murray looks unfazed. The Scot is serving well, and the first serve guides him to another solid hold.

 

Murray 4-4 Kyrgios. Kyrgios continues his showboating, this time registering an epic-fail after mis-timing a Samprasian jump smash. But the serve is still working well, and he levels up the set again with little drama.

- 

Murray 4-3 Kyrgios. No biggie. Kyrgios strolls to retrieve a Murray lob, throws in a totally unnecessary tweener, then destroys a forehand comfortably over 100mph. The crowd is enchanted. But Murray isn't, and he quickly collects another hold with considerably fewer frills.

- 

Murray 3-3 Kyrgios. No sulking and no insults from Kyrgios so far. Instead, after dropping serve, he goes back to the drawing board and cranks up his famed serve.

Murray 3-2 Kyrgios. Murray was unsurprisingly unpertubed by Kyrgios' rapid start. After dropping his serve, Murray flits to triple break point. He breaks shortly after, and the hold that follows is quick and sweet. In the blink of an eye, he 's back out in front.

-
