Murray made me look average says Dent
Taylor Dent praised Andy Murray's renowned return of serve after being on the wrong end of a three-set drubbing by the world number two at the US Open.
The American wild card, ranked 195 and climbing back up the rankings after more than two years out of action following two major back operations, saw Murray nullify his big serve and serve-volley tactics on his way to a 90-minute 6-3 6-2 6-2 defeat under the lights at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
"He doesn't miss. He really doesn't miss," Dent, 28, said following the defeat.
"I don't think I served great tonight but I don't think I served poorly either.
"I served probably below average for me but he made it look and feel like I served underhanded out there at times.
"He was just able to put stuff by me. I tried to mix up my spins, mix up my paces and give him different looks.
"I think he's number one in the world at breaking guys, so that makes sense."
Dent, the son of former Australian tennis star Phil Dent, said the third-round match with Murray had probably come a little too soon along his road back towards the top 100 in the rankings.
"I'm not executing well enough to feel like I have an outstanding shot to beat a quality player like Murray," Dent said.
"Right now my serve isn't quite as accurate. I'm missing too many forehands.
"What kept the games relatively close on my serve and gave me a few chances to get tight was, again, my fighting. I was battling for every point.
"He's a quality player, there's no way around it, and if your execution isn't matching his, it's going to go like that."
