I thought it was his ankle that needed support. My bad.
Anyway, huge props to Andy Murray for coming back from being down 2 sets to none and 2 points from defeat and pulling out a 4-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 7-5 win over Viktor Troicki in match spanning 2 days. Phew, that's a lot of 2's. The Brit baller wasn't going to let a tendon tear in his ankle or some ball boy drama stop him from reaching the quarterfinals of Roland Garros.
Muzz certainly has received his share of criticism over his will and desire in the big matches. But I have to say I'm really impressed by what he did in this match. He showed real grit and determination (and a lot of pained facial expressions, too). It's like the injury got him out of his head and allowed his game to flow. Muzz was just focused on the fight. Me likey, and so does Mama Murray:
