  • MURRAY 6-3 7-6(6) 1-6 1-3* HAASE: The temperature is soaring on Louis Armstrong and so are Robin Haase's chances of a fightback against an opponent who is struggling with an injury. Some big first serves help the Scot hold serve and stop the rot of that winning run of games from Haase.

The Dutchman frames a high lob to hand the Scot another chance but he fails to control his volley at the net. Murray is all over a Haas second serve and then pulls up with cramp in his right leg. He breaks with an instinctive return ... oh my word!
    8/25/2014 7:03:05 PM
  • [break] MURRAY 6-3 7-6(6) 1-6 3-5* HAASE: You have got to hand it to Murray for showing so much heart in this match. He cramps up again in his left leg and then his forearm. I've never seen that before! Haase earns a double break point on the Murray serve and he moves ahead once more as the British No 1 fires long. 
    8/25/2014 7:06:21 PM
  • [break] MURRAY 6-3 7-6(6) 1-6 *4-5 HAASE: Spectators inside Louis Armstrong don;t know what to make of this as a 177 km/h ace gets Haase to 15-30. A 183 km/h ace levels it, but back comes Murray with a winner out wide. A double fault hands the Scot the game ... incredible!
