Presumptuous to look too far ahead but if Andy Murray does make it through this one, he is likely to face Mayer again. Florian Mayer. The German is two sets up against American Donald Young.
How do we feel Murray is going to do at the US Open this year then? Are we an optimistic bunch?
After a comfort break Mayer is back and we are ready to start the second set. Murray to serve.
Have to say Murray has become a lot more dominant since the Super Cup finished. Did somebody tip him off that a lot more people were about to start watching?
Another incredible rally! Murray showing why he is world number 3, covering a remarkable 42 metres in that last point alone! Mayer still nicked it but couldn't quite get the ball back from the net.
A tired shot from Mayer brings up another break point. Win this and Murray will certainly feel the match is in his pocket.
News from the other courts is that Florian Mayer awaits the winner of this match. The 29-year-old German reached the Wimbledon quarter final last year but has lost both matches to Murray in his career.
But that is for another day, the third set is about to get underway with the other Mayer, Leonardo, to serve.
And he starts with a double fault. Far from ideal for the Argentine.
Oh Andy! A simple smash is planted into the net by Murray. He can't believe it. Looks like he has broken a string on his racquet as well.
Fabulous cross-court forehand drops in and Mayer has THREE break points.
Just a quick word on the other Brits in this tournament... Laura Robson was beaten earlier but Dominic Inglot and Jamie Murray are into the next round of the mixed doubles with their respective partners. Colin Flemming and Jonny Marray also won their match but Heather Watson lost in the Ladies doubles.
That is of course not forgetting the man of the moment, Dan Evans, who is in action tomorrow evening against Tommy Robredo. A potential clash with Roger Federer awaits the winner in the last 16.
Back to this match... the ball is still very much in Murray's court so to speak, but he will be concerned that a fourth set may be needed.
This is all going rather pear-shaped rather quickly. THREE break points for Mayer.
I put it down to the fact he has a yellow top back on again. Don't go for another white one Leonardo.
That really is some great tennis from Mayer. Despite not taking any of his three break points he forces the issue, presses Murray back and comes into the net to finish him off and earn another break point chance.
