There was disappointment on Centre Court tonight, as the Andy Murray Crowd failed to live up to its previous high standards, underperforming to such an extent, that Murray was buried by number 2 seed Rafael Nadal.
The Crowd never got going, and Murray was a subdued figure as Nadal took the first two sets easily, before the Crowd even knew what had hit them. When they finally awoke, Murray was already staring defeat in the face.
There was the odd round of polite applause and an occasional cheer, but nothing approaching Monday night's uproarious demented behaviour during the demolition of Frenchman Richard Gasquet. Then, the Crowd turned the match around for Murray, who eventually won in five sets.
This time, however, there was to be no such repeat, with The Crowd finally losing in three sets 3-6, 2-6, 4-6. Alice Tailsworthy-Gammidge, the Crowd's Treasurer claimed it was just one match too far for many of their number. She said:
"After Monday, many of the Crowd were hoarse. They were exhausted after badgering that narsty little Frenchman. It's a nuisance, but we'll be back, louder and more annoying next year. You haven't seen the last of the Andy Murray Crowd!"
