Daily Data Viz: Analyzing the Andy Murray vs. Bernard Tomic match-up
On Monday at the Australian Open, No. 2-seed Andy Murray will take on Australian Bernard Tomic for a spot in the quarterfinals. Tomic has not taken a set from Murray in their previous three meetings, while Murray has one of the best return games in tennis and is very solid from the backcourt. Tomic hasn't been able to stay consistent enough to hang with Murray when he gets pressured on his own serve and as a result, he starts going for too much on his groundstrokes. Tomic has explosive power but you need relentless pressure to get Murray off his game. The challenge for Tomic will be to try to find that balance if he's going to pull an upset.
