OUT! Point and game Djokovic. 6-6 and we're at a third set tiebreak! This could be it.
...
Murray's backhand comes back out - he's not going down without a fight! We may have a fourth set on the cards..
...
6-5 to Murray, who is giving himself disapproving looks. A precise forehand ace from Djokovic sees him at game point - and we're all set for a third set tiebreak!
...
...
And he holds! 5-5; is Djokovic two games from victory or will Murray continue to test him?
...
Bit of a turnaround here.. Djokovic is serving to stay in the third set! Down 4-5, but he won a set down 0-40 so nothing is impossible..
...
Everything but the kitchen sink...
...
Djokovic holds - but a splendid point from Murray, who pulls out backhand, forehand and charging the net!
...
Murray's leading 4-3 now as he capitalises. It's still looking roundly in Djokovic's favour today, with Murray unable to combat either his forehand or backhand.
...
Murray BREAKS! 3-3 in the third set. Will he take it to a fourth?
...
...
Djokovic looked to be having a tough battle with Murray's renewed vigour in the second set - no trouble now, as he's up a break on Murray and leads him 3-1!
...
An early break for Djokovic gives him a 1-0 lead over Murray, who is coming up on 50 unforced errors already..
...
...
SET POINT...and he takes it! Novak Djokovic leads Andy Murray two sets to love, 6-1, 7-5.
...
...
Djokovic breaks to take a 6-5 lead and will now serve for the second set!
...
Murray may be outhitting Djokovic in the second set, but his classic weakness against Djokovic is back - he's made 27 unforced errors so far...and now a 28th!
