Del Potro throws everything and the kitchen sink at that match but really, it's all just done in the end. Murray sticks on even at break point to win the match with a final set bagel. 

Andy Murray beats Juan Martin del Potro 7-6, 7-5, 6-0!
...
Del Potro knows he's just a service game from loss ... despite which he's still playing some great drop shots, running in, and not giving up. At a time when everyone, including the scoreboard, likely has. 

He's now at break point! 
...
And.... 5-0! Murray isn't celebrating so much as his wife Kim is, but the Scot's shots have gotten smoother, easier, and just more relaxed.

That surely comes with being one service game from a win...
...
4-0. Really going downhill for Del Potro now. He seems to be trying the shots still, but it's too little too late and Murray's returns have been on FIRE! 
...
Double break of serve for Andy Murray here to take a 3-0 lead. Looks like DelPo has given up and the disappointed crowd, who were quite vocal in their support of Del Potro, aren't best pleased...
...
Del Potro has come back brilliantly from two sets to love down before. 

Twice. 

Only once on Tour. 

The other time was last year at the Davis Cup, vs Marin Cilic. I doubt he'll do it again. And it's not that the Argentine has been low on energy or commitment to shots - but Murray has just been on the nose since set 1. 
...
...
Andy Murray takes the second set in style 7-5, with an ace down the line. But it's looking ominous out on Philippe Chatrier, with grey clouds looming overhead.

Rain was already forecast, so we'll just have to see how this one goes.
...
Del Potro broken back straightaway. While Murray is firmly on top here, there's absolutely no cowing down from Del Potro either. A couple of his shots have had a bit too much on them, and go long. Murray is now at set point.
...
...
JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT HE WAS OUT, HE PULLS IT BACK IN! 

Del Potro breaks to level at 5-5 at perhaps the most crucial of times. Scores level at 5-5. Someone still hasn't lost the magic.
...
5-4! A brilliant hold of serve from Juan Martin del Potro. But it's Murray who'll serve for set 2 now and it really does feel like DelPo has switched off a bit...
...
We're at 4-3 now with Del Potro taking a bit of a spill on the court! 
...
...
The desire is there, and so is the intent from Juan Martin del Potro right now, but Murray has been relentlessly attacking Delpo's forehands and hitting deep here. Del Potro scrambles to make some shots that unfortunately go just awry - and it's now Murray who appears to be running away with this set at 4-2. 
...
Oh no! Not an MTO just yet, but Del Potro, down 2-3 in set two, has asked for a painkiller. Murray still up a break of serve here.
...
Quick and easy service hold from Andy Murray here to take a 3-1 lead in the second set. But Del Potro, it must be said, has managed to play well here despite relying almost entirely on his forehand. 

He's up 40-0 now in this game - and thankfully for his fans, in ship shape physically. 
...
Narrowly avoiding a double break there, Del Potro claws back from 0-30 down. Murray's first serves have been great here, with the Scot winning 60% of his points on his first serve. 

2-1 to Andy Murray in the second.
...
And he holds! Murray's got down to business here and he's up 2-0 with a hold after that break. The shots are faster, the movement is quicker, and so are the games. For now...
...
Andy Murray, fresh off the success of Set 1, breaks Del Potro with ace after ace to seal the first game of Set 2. 1-0! 
...
Andy Murray takes the first set 7-6! 
...
Talk abut your no signs of letting up! Del Potro's clawing back at Murray's every fight, while Murray stays mostly at the baseline. Del Potro approaching the net for eveyrthing now, and it's FIRST SET MURRAY! 
...
Murray quickly brings up Set Point 2 here! Like I said earlier, he appeared not to have the best rhythm going! 

And now we're at 6-all! Whoever wins this, you can be sure it is a CONTEST! 
...
Andy Murray is digging deep for some big forehands on Court Philippe Chatrier! There's some great strategic gameplay and the Scottish World no 1 leads 6-4 in the tiebreak. SET POINT! 
...
3-3 in the tiebreak now!
