R. Nadal VS A. Murray match analysis

Rafael Nadal has improved consistently since that first match with Roddick and I believe he will match Murray easily in this one. Andy Murray was all up and down in my opinion - solid first match, horrible second match, solid third match. The fact is, people always expect him to be solid on serve, but Federer has broken him a few times and Ferrer was able to achieve the same. Nadal will surely be able to the same a couple of times and I really fancy him here. Andy Murray sometimes struggles in these high-profile matches, especially in front of his home crowd (remember Wimbledon?). Nadal is the one that has the better mindset for this match - he plays for every single point, while Murray has these spells when he throws some points away for free when he loses concentration a little bit. Nadal does not do that and this is what will decide here. Also, even though Murray is the better player on hard courts, this surface has a high bounce, which is an advantage to Nadal, since he can utilize that bounce better than Murray can. Good luck.
