On Monday, Viktor Troicki took the opening two sets vs. Andy Murray as the Scot tried to gain confidence in his ankle. Then, Murray played much better the next two sets to take it to 5 before darkness fell upon Paris. Back they come for the 5th set today.
Troicki came out and went up 5-2 in the 5th! He served for it at 5-3! But, yet again, Troicki's choking past showed up again as Murray won 5 straight games to take the 5th 7-5. Murray now has a great chance to make the SF, having only to beat Chela to get there.
As for Troicki, well, this will be a very difficult loss to get over. Something that mentally might stay with him for a long time.
