After a poor outing against big underdog Paolo Lorenzi Saturday, Andy Murray kicked up a few levels Monday night at the US Open, hammering No. 22 seed Grigor Dimitrov 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 in the fourth round.

“I played extremely well, tactically it was a good match,” Murray said. “I served very well when I was behind in the game. I made very few errors and made it tough for him.”

Dimitrov sprayed 44 unforced errors while Murray was virtually untouchable on his serve early on, blasting a career-best 141mph at to finish of the first set.

“I served one at 145 in San Jose and the next day they recalibrated the gun because it was completely wrong,” he said. “Tonight is the fastest serve I’ve hit. I only did it once – I think it was luck.”

Murray didn’t let up on the Bulgarian who came in with high hopes after a turnaround summer and previous wins over Murray in Miami and two years ago at Wimbledon. But Murray was not in a giving mood on this night as the 2012 champion moved on to his 6th US Open quarterfinal.

“Obviously it’s a great experience for me to get out there and play a night match on Ashe,” Dimitrov said. “Obviously I’m very disappointed from the result. I feel I’ve been doing really well the past five, six weeks, practicing-wise, winning a few good and close matches when I had to.

“Obviously today I ran out of fuel I think physically and mentally. For sure I was a little bit overwhelmed to get out there, you know, playing that prime time match. Of course, it’s a great experience for me. Andy right now is the best player out there. Of course, he deserves all the credit today.”

Obviously Dimitrov just isn’t good enough against the best in the best events.

Murray will now face 2014 finalist Kei Nishikori who dominated Ivo Karlovic 6-3, 6-4, 7-6(3) to advance to his second US Open quarterfinal.

“My serve was much better today,” said Nishikori. ‘Able to hit a lot of first serve in. Third set, it was a little bit tight in the end. But, yeah, really good focus today. Happy with my win today.”

Murray has won seven of eight from Nishikori.

“I enjoy it here,” Murray said. “It’s an unbelievable court to play on and a fantastic atmosphere all the time. They are great conditions to play in.

“The next round will be a tough match. Kei has been to the final here and loves the hard courts. I played a really good match against him at the Olympics and I will need to do that again.”

Earlier, Juan Martin del Potro had his easiest outing when No. 8 seed Dominic Thiem retired at 6-3, 3-2 with a right knee injury.

It’s del Potro’s first Grand Slam quarterfinal since 2013 Wimbledon semifinal run. The 2009 US Open champion is ranked No. 142, but will already climb back into the Top 65.

“I didn’t expect to be in quarters in my second Grand Slam after my comeback,” del Potro said. “I’m doing in a good way because I’m playing good tennis. My level is growing up every day.

“I’m so glad to be part of the last eight in this tournament, and that I will have the chance to play another big challenge after tomorrow. Everything can happen. So I will try to be there.”

Del Potro also shook off any concerns about his left wrist.

“I’m not worried about my wrist at the moment because I’m practicing every day. I’m playing matches every day. My wrist responds in the good way,” he said.

“Now I have to hit my backhand even better than today for my next match. Here is a different surface than Wimbledon, so my slices doesn’t go too well as I did in Wimbledon. But I’m okay with my level. I’m hitting good forehands. My serve is working good. I’m looking forward to do a good match after tomorrow.”

Next for the Argentine is a rematch with Stan Wawrinka. The Swiss dropped a shaky third set to rebound and win in four over Ilya Marchenko 6-4, 6-1, 6-7(5), 6-3.

Del Potro ‘s leads Wawrinka 4-2 winning their last four including a 4-set win this year in the Wimbledon fourth round.

“It’s going to be good challenge to play against him,” Wawrinka said. “I’m excited to play against him in the quarterfinal here at the US Open. We play each other already this year at Wimbledon. He beat me. So it’s going to be a good match again.

“He’s playing really well. I saw him playing against Ferrer. He’s playing really strong. In Olympic also, is there, is beating the top guys also. It’s going to be difficult match. But for both of us I think it’s going to be important to try to dictate and be aggressive on the court.”

Tomorrow, Novak Djokovic returns against Jo-Wilfred Tsonga. Djokovic leads 15-6 and 5-1 in Slams. And in an all-French affair, Lucas Pouille will meet Gael Monfils. Monfils beat Pouille in five sets at the Australian Open in 2015.

77 Comments for Murray Destroys Dimitrov At US Open; Djokovic And 3 Frenchmen In Tuesday QFs

lakie Says:

Wawa seems motivated.


Travis Bickle Says:

Really, really good play by Muzza!
Dimitrov had no chance after that close first game when he had 2 break points. Murray retrieved everything and returned it deep so Dimi was clueless as to what to do next. And what a touch Andy has… and the feel for tennis!

I always said, it is Murray’s bad luck to be born in the same era as Djoker and Rafa because he will never come close to their achievements. But he is waaayyyy under-appreciated compared to guys like Safin, Roddick, Kuerten, Ferrero who totally undeservedly are still being more respected and considered to be more relevant in terms of tennis historic legacy in many tennis circles…


Miks Says:

Safin would have routinely destroyed Murray had they played each other in their primes.


J-Kath Says:

TB:

“I didn’t feel he played unbelievable tennis” says Grigor, “but I felt I just did a lot of mistakes.”

I didn’t see the match – it took place during my beauty sleep…urhmp, (clears throat)….so interesting to hear what others say, including your good self. For me, Andy lacks consistency – not necessarily against the rest of the pack but when push comes to shove vs. Nole in particular.


Margot Says:

Kath: in the past Andy could get into self-destruct mode all too easily, and carried bad decisions, from himself as well as the umps, and missed opportunities on far too long. Aaaah Fish match at Queens etc etc Let’s face it people mature at different ages and marriage and child has probably helped in this process. Also, let’s not forget before that back operation Andy was seriously challenging Nole. I feel he’s now back to pre-op levels and perhaps his new maturity balances the effects of aging on his play? Hoorah anyway!
TB: lol just polishing my specs and re-reading…..


AndyMira Says:

M..I agree with you..I don’t think we’re going to see the ‘old Andy’ if they’re going to meet in final..Although Andy lost to Novak in FO but he’s already beat Nole in Rome before that..And that is before he won Wimby and Olympics..he’s going to match nole’s famous resilience and mental strength this time..he’s already practiced that with DelPo at Olympics..Also,the pressure is all on Nole to defend his title and Andy can play to his heart content without worrying much about that..


Tennis Vagabond Says:

Andy was at his absolute best last night. Early on, Dmitrov was hitting some amazing winners. Except Andy was retrieving them.

Del Potro looked great in the first set. His net play has really improved and he is getting better every tournament with his two handed backhand.


J-Kath Says:

Margot: Don’t really disagree.

Not sure the aging process is yet a factor as both he and Nole take their practice and body condition a lot more seriously than not only the younger guys but the rest of the field.

I actually believe Andy is naturally more talented than Nole the reverse of that is different Andy’s appear out of nowhere and Nole is more consistent. (Yes, Nole is going through somewhat of the same phase at the moment in that the suspicion that he is not always unbeatable has crept into the ether).

In this particular tournament, Andy’s road to the final is now more fraught than Nole’s….nobody’s fault, these things happen. So my private bet (between my bright side and my darker side) is 50%:50% with the hope that Andy repeats his good 12 hours sleep for the next few days.


the_mind_reels Says:

@J-Kath:

I went to the match last night, and while Murray wasn’t necessarily playing unbelievable tennis in the sense of it being a constant highlight reel, the fact that Dimitrov hit so many unforced errors is a testament to how well Murray defended and forced Dimitrov to go for his shots. Murray also came up with some spectacular crosscourt forehand winners that Dimitrov could only watch go by. Good stuff by Andy — he looks sharp.


J-Kath Says:

the_mind_reels

Many thanks for your info. Kind of you to comment.


SG1 Says:

I pity the tennis balls used in the Wawa-DelPo match…CRUNCH!


SG1 Says:

Andy looks so good right now. IMO, he’s the best player in the world and I think he has to be the favorite to win this thing. He demolished Dimitrov…completely unnerved him.


J-Kath Says:

@ SG1

I very much like your comments. Although Andy may be the favourite I’m on the fence as to whether he wins this GS.


Daniel Says:

As expected Monfils dominating Pouille. With semis results he should be good to establish himself in top 10 and qualify for London this year.


Van Persie Says:

Will la Monf do a “Pennetta”? He looks very serious


Van Persie Says:

Have a strange feeling about Djoko tonight, hope I’m wrong


Daniel Says:

Just realize that if Djoko wins today it will be hos 10th or better straight semis in USO.

He will have to be off tonight and Tsonga way above hos current level for an upset to occur.


Khd Says:

While I don’t agree that Murray’s the superior player, imo, Djoker is like Ivanisevic.
Completely disinterested or in the zone.
The good Djoker or bad Djoker.
Remember, he didn’t think tennis was #1, as recently as 2013.
Murray has always been all about tennis. He tries to play as much as possible, unlike Fedal.


J-Kath Says:

Yep: Agree with Daniel.


skeezer Says:

VP,
You’ll be wrong.


skeezer Says:

Not playing, but still promoting the game and spending time with the fans. Legendary. Me thinks this would be good for WB and twin TB:

BBB Says:

Miks – I have the deepest feelings for Safin, but my goodness, he never routinely destroyed anyone….


AndyMira Says:

Let’s see whether Tsonga as an underdog can challenge The Great Novak this evening..It’s going to be an interesting match..Bring it on guys!


RZ Says:

@Travis – JJ Vallejo agrees with you on that count. https://twitter.com/jjvallejoa/status/772967075300175872


Humble Rafa Says:

I am a very Humble man by nature. But if I was the Flying Frenchman’s coach and see him tying his shoe laces in the middle of a point, I will slap him.

#norespect


skeezer Says:

VP,
Still “bad feeling”?
Lol


Daniel Says:

Djoko dominating and playong veter as the match plays on. Poised for a straight set win. Guess only finals between him and Murray or him and DelPo can provide some intense moments.

Indeed, even comentors here in Brazil are saying, that this Open lacks some drama. Too many retirements and easy matches. Apart from the Nadal match there was no cliffhanger or wannabe classic matches.

Hope for more competitve semis and tomorrow matches.


skeezer Says:

Yes, all of the sudden, Novak is playing like he has been miraculously cured! All over the court, serve, return, movement, wow what a out a nowhere recovery. I want that juice he must be drinkin. Practicin that shoulder no wincing things are are all good.
That said, another boring Novak match(tele goes off). Bzzzzz.
Am startin to believe in the giles faker thingy. And why not?
Tsonga is done, but all credit to him playing with an obvious hurt knee.


AndyMira Says:

A great showing of sportsmanship by Novak by not even going out to the court and celebrate his win..But what a luck he has!This new development sure has change a landscape a little bit..Being the fresher from the rest of them certainly will give nole a huge advantage…Oh,bad news for the rest!


Daniel Says:

Damm it, Tsonga had to retire. Third out of 5 matches where Djoko didn’t have to win a MP.

Not even he must be believing this is actually happening.


chrisford1 Says:

Wish I had a ticket for La Monf and Nole. He has been death on both Monfils and Tsonga, all his career. Gaels is playing great though and maybe we could have a Soderling moment “No one beats La Monf 13 times in a row!!”.
Regardless, both guys will be doing stuff most pros can only dream about or never thought possible for anyone to do until Novak or Gaels did it. I think in that, even if it doesn’t become a close match, it’s showtime in the semis.

I know, the Tsonga match isn’t over and normally it would be presumptuous to anoint a winner, but it IS a slaughter like Andy gave Dimitrov.

Making the semis will tie Djokovic with Connors for most Slam semis. 10 behinf federer.


Wog Boy Says:

” I want that juice he must be drinkin.”

No need to ask Nole for drink when you can ask St Roger for a better one , from Swiss Alps, that miraculously cured him of his back, knee and other problems so he could play 2014/15 better than ever before….until he was given six months silent ban..so he can do some Alps hiking (with injured knee, back, mental..) in a search for a another juice.

On the other note, why don’t you do some hiking yourself, you became so boring with your jealousy with everything Nole does.

” Hit the road Jack(ass) and don’t cha come back
No more no more no more no more…”


skeezer Says:

“that miraculously cured him of his back, knee and other problems so he could play 2014/15″
In Fact, he is still out from the knee

Dude, that took him awhile to get back from that. Not like DURING A TOURNAMENT……
ROFL.
NOT fooled.
Like I said from the beginning of USO and all the faker injury Nole hoo ha.
He is a shoo in.

Wog Boy Says:

CF1,

Tsonga had upper hand in 2008/10 period, after AO 2008 final, and postive h 2 h at one stage, methinks.


RZ Says:

Tsonga was injured too? Nole has only played 2 complete matches so far this tournament. Yikes.


Wog Boy Says:

Yeah, six months silent ban…and he will be ready for knew contract with “world renewed” Fila..haha


skeezer Says:

RZ,
Great point. Laughable Slam. For sure an asterick next to Novaks win(if he wins).
#0competition


skeezer Says:

Desperate times brings desperate accusations. Fed has missed less matches than anyone in the top 4 on his illustrous career. An accusation of “silent ban” is no only laughable, but loses the intrgrity of a fan who is already desperately jealous of the man, the legend, the mastro, the greatest.
It doesn’t matter, when Fed is done, players, commentators and coaches around the world will give him the GOAT party that will stand the test of time. No “Clowning” needed for attention.


Wog Boy Says:

“In Fact, he is still out from the knee”

Is that the same knee that was “injured” walking with a kids in Melbourne park…wait a minute..no, he was getting ready to bath his kids (he doesn’t have a nannies;).. but actually Mirka kneecapped him for keeping embarrassing her against Nole..so he had to have “surgery” and immediately after started to shuttle around the world right after surgery …Hollywood, California, Miami..saying he never felt better, he is right where he wants to be, he is happy with his game, he is looking forward to HC season, then CC season, than grass season, all usual Olderer BS, and at the end he had to invent another “knee dinjury” since Olympics have very sophisticated testing and you can’t get away with…you know what;)


Wog Boy Says:

USO 2004,

Great competition and competitors, best final ever, Federe/Hewitt 6:0 7:6 6:0…

Hit the road Jack(ass)..


Van Persie Says:

Just woke up….and wow, another retirement.

WB,

How did Nole play those 2 sets?


skeezer Says:

Now you want invoke something that happened *12 *years ago? Your try failed.
You cannot tarnish Feds stellar career vs your fav, you’ll lose every time. Don’t get me started on Novaks shortcomings in the past. I for one respect him too much(but if you keep harpin on Fed, it will happen). Give it up and move on. Your fav will win, enjoy that and leave(respect) the GOAT.
Calling names at posters only makes you look more like a loser.
*L*


Wog Boy Says:

VP,

Actually I haven’t seen the match, just having a fun with so called “Nole fan”.
The worst thing is I haven’t recorded it either, so I hope that Mr Murdoch’s FOXsports will do replay this afternoon.


skeezer Says:

Hey VP,
Still *troubled*?


Wog Boy Says:

“Now you want invoke something that happened *12 *years ago? ”

Actually it kept happening between 2003-2007….


Van Persie Says:

All good now, Skeezer. Thanx for asking.
Would also recommend you to chill a bit ;)


Wog Boy Says:

I’ll suggest you something, I am a good man, since you are deeply disappointed with Nole win, why don’t you put on your “upmarket ” Fila apparel and go and play some tennis to clear your head…your head is one big mess these days..


Danica Says:

Sorry, in the event of a Nole USO win, no asterisks will be added as it is not his problem the competition is ailing. No one puts an asterisk by the winner over an injured player. Say, Lopez or DelPo over Novak.


skeezer Says:

Lets invoke something more recent, since your mentioning Fed,
How about this WB, the eye thingy retirement with boooooos;

http://www.tennis.com/pro-game/2016/02/watch-djokovic-met-chorus-boos-after-retiring-match/57724/


skeezer Says:

Danica,
Of course there will be no asterick.t But your friend incites the appropriate response. We’ll clear things up later..,😃


Van Persie Says:

Danica,

Great point!


Wog Boy Says:

VP,

If you are on your way to Timișoara between 4th of October and 25th of October it would be nice to catch up for a drink in Belgrade, I’ll be there, with few days here and there in between.


Wog Boy Says:

Are you sure your nick is “skeezer” or maybe “sleezer”.. You sound like later one..


skeezer Says:

WB,
Another name callng response? Really? Thats all you got? Whatever dude. Catch a wave, try the surf, you may feel better.
—–
VP & danica,
Look at it this way, Novak, with all his *niggles* arm, shoulder, wrist, was still able to fight through and win. So how will he perform when he is getting over those things? You’re seeing it. He’s going to win the YSO, trust je.


Wog Boy Says:

Now you are sucking up to danica and VP.. how low can you go?


Van Persie Says:

WB,

Great. Thank you for the info. I’ll start the planning and I’ll try my best to find a way. Should not be a problem for me. We talked about that already a few months ago and I told my boyfriend, that we might travel to Beograd this Fall. A Saturday would be perfect. We will stay in touch about that :)


RZ Says:

Agree with Danica. It’s not Nole’s fault most of his opponents this tournament have been injured and couldn’t play or finish matches. But still, wow.


Daniel Says:

VP,

Djoko played great, his BH was deep amd he was controlling the ball at will. Bar a game he was broken in set one right after breaking Tsonga he was excellent. Serve could still be a bit better but hos strokes were way more powerfull than first round and Youzhny.

Next two matches promisses, Monfils and than Murray/DelPo. Maybe the tourney is saving the best for last. We have so far 4 players in amazing form winning easy: Djoko, Murray, Monfils and DelPo. Kei also played great. Wawa inconsistant.


Van Persie Says:

Thanks for the feedback, Daniel.


Wog Boy Says:

” Wawa inconsistant.”

Yes Daniel, but he has got best looking outfit…and girlfriend..he is one happy man, win or lose:)


skeezer Says:

WB, low? You own “low” dude, you have to call people names cause you don’t have an argument.
Grade school material. Time to go back to school and learn how to debate.
Other Novak fans don’t resort to such childlike behavior (TB the twin excluded). I just like to call it out when I see it.
I’ll meet you at the Sports Club Belgrade and we can talk some more. They love Fed there. First one is on me.🍺


RZ Says:

Wawa is the only one who has faced a match point. That survival sometimes makes players dangerous.


Margot Says:

Really like Pouille’s game. What an exciting young player. Attack! Attack! Great to see someone playing like Mac again…well almost. Top 10? Top 5? For sure Grand slam? Very likely.


Wog Boy Says:

“They love Fed there.”

Wishful thinking, keep dreaming.


Travis Bickle Says:

Skeezer,

Seriously and with all due respect to you as a long time poster here, it would be the best for everyone if you take a prolonged hiatus from here. Based on your posts lately, you are rather negative, bitter and don’t contribute to discussion AT ALL.
You are entering Giles’ territory lately and that is a dark place to be in ;-)
I think you are better than that.

You must be bothered by something and it is obvious that watching tennis doesn’t bring fun to you any more. Go somewhere else, don’t torture yourself by watching this “boring” tennis and guys who dope, fake, retire, quit matches, etc…
It will be beneficial for all of us, including you!


J-Kath Says:

My goodness – this business of getting a stroll to the semis is hysterical. I feel sorry for Nole, he must be embarrassed all the way down to his toe-nails, even though it’s not his fault. And who’s to say it isn’t going to continue? Gael is prone to injury…so the only thing we don’t know is whether he will withdraw before or during the match?


emilia Says:

Why should Nole be embarrassed? Things happen in life like VIS MAYOR. Nole is playing in an honest way, the wsy he can.


J-Kath Says:

Emilia:

If Nole wins the tournament, he would normally demonstrate his natural joy and enthusiasm and engage with the crowd – but given the walk-overs and retirements he may be a bit more restricted……even though it’s certainly not his fault.


Giles Says:

Faker has the luck of the devil. Not only does he not have any competition he doesn’t even have to win matches fair and square to win a tournament. Geez!


BBB Says:

Daniel, I’d disagree a bit – I don’t think Djoker played very well in the first set, but somewhere in the second set his real game showed up – well constructed points, precise groundstrokes etc.


Wog Boy Says:

BBB,
Just watching it now, Nole picked it up after 4:3 in the first, his second break was played really well , yet to see second set.


Daniel Says:

WB,

I hope Wawa and DelPo bring the lustrous outfits tonight. They will look like Jedi and light sabers duel on court.

BBB,

Yeah, second set he was better but still think his first set was great. He was able to break even when Tsonga broke him back.


Khb Says:

Novak knows he’s the best.
He’s continually embarrassed by the poor 2003-2006 psychos & rule breaking clowns,
as well as Federer and espn’s bad behavior and hypocrisy.
Such a laughable weak era.
No wonder novak mocks their King Fed.
Nole’s very aware of all these sociopaths that ridicule him due to their own sense of inadequacy. Just because many fed fanboys side with Fed doesn’t mean anyone worries about their nonsense.
With all respect to Murray, Djoker’s personal probs & weak arm gave
Murray a gateway of easy Wimbledon/olympic draws.
Murray wasn’t exactly cruising through Wimbledon, Olympics, Cincinnati & USO.
A subpar but brave Del Po was the only great one in his final.
Cilic choked again against Fed at Wimbledon then got a Cincy prize.
Del Po, Monfils and turkeys in 2004 also choked miserably when Fed “played.


J-Kath Says:

khb

Wasn’t it that “subpar Delpo” who beat Nole?
Didn’t Murray have back surgery which took him out of contention for a year?
You say with all respect to Murray it was Nole’s personal problems and weak arm that gave Murray easy Wimmbledon and Olympic draws….Come on…asterisks all the way.

I don’t mind that Nole is superior but to erase Murray’s success in such a way when he can only play the man in front of him is insulting.


Khb Says:

Funny. If you talk about erasing results, look at the players’ words.
Even Murray answered that Novak wasn’t doing well after
beating Nadal & Kei in Rome. Totally different than in French Open.
Nadal stated that novak shocked him by beating Fed at the ’11 U.S. Open sf.
Novak had numerous health issues in 2006-2009 and
still, whenever he’s injured now, Novak says he’s insulted
if he doesn’t play.
Fed’s lapdog Roddick heard the Pat McEnroe lies about Novak
then Rodd claimed that Novak was the hateful disrespectful clown & cowardly liar.
I guess Rodd realized that his darling Fed didn’t dominate tennis & would get injured too.
USA & Fed were so in love. They could get away with sabotaging the Serb. The media continued their novak backstabbing afterward. More insulting than anything murray dealt with.

Of course, Nadal kept saying he was unlucky & injured & that novak was “lucky”. He said he noticed no novak health prob in 2011, but
everyone had to talk about Nadal injury time off.
Fedal didn’t even play the USO in any year together.
Novak had to play fed in tough SF matches.
He was injured in 2011 U.S. open too.
Obviously, the press wished to mock him. To take him down from #1.
Fed said he wanted Fedal at their #1/2 rank.
Novak was all luck & trick shot, after all…
Novak wasn’t supposed to win because Nadal was reaching #1
in 2008 & Fed was the media’s ballerina.
Murray was already beating the top guys in 2008.
