When many who didn't watch the match learn of the result and the circumstances in which Novak Djokovic came from behind to win, they will all think the same thing: What a choke by Andy Murray.
After all, the Scotsman has been known to crumble under pressure in Grand Slam semifinals and finals, and having won the first set, you'd have expected him to do better here. You'd have expected him to at least break the Djokovic serve.
But this result was the furthest thing from an Andy Murray collapse; the Brit was huge in defeat and proved himself to be a genuine talent on center court.
He held serve against arguably the best returner in the game for two whole sets, and had he won that second-set tiebreak, the result would have been entirely different.
It would be Murray's body that would give in—not his mind—as the rigors of his laboring five-set semifinal against Roger Federer began to show in the third set. He received injury treatment for his toes and looked to be in absolute agony at the end, unable to turn or stop and go in a different direction at all.
This was not a mental collapse from Murray, and the fact he hung in there for so long against Djokovic is a testament to just how strong he was mentally here.
