But the hangdog expression has not been slow to come back as he quickly threw his advantage, 30 to 30, Murray in a terrible forehand loop, and then hammered a success out of court.
A hold fast Djokovic was followed by a pause that the Serbs, on the advisability seventh, cracked a superb backhand pass the line to go up 3-1. Perhaps sensing he was short of time, Murray began to go for a little more and he broke back to get the withdrawal to be used when Djokovic dumped a drop shot into the net.
He had to save a break point at 3-3 and level, he found himself caught in the devil once more in his service game. This time Murray was unable to escape the approaching danger, as he hit a running right in the middle of the net.
