Andy Murray tosses some sweat bands and his broken racquet to the fans as he marches towards the dressing rooms before the public address can properly bid him farewell.

He will have frustration to take out on the Belgians.

Which is lucky, because he is not bring much form into the Davis Cup final.

Andy Murray saves the match point. Back to deuce...

But the Scot is pressed back once more and will have to fight for his life once more...

Match point Wawrinka

Murray 6-7 (4-7) 4-5 Wawrinka

Andy Murray issues himself with a stern telling off as he over-cooks a forehand to allow Stan Wawrinka back to deuce. 

A little over-eager.

And Murray smashes the frame of his racquet in disgust as he offers up a match point with a dolly shot that Wawrinka smashes away.

Andy Murray pops blood vessels and tests his hernia resistance as he silently screams in disgust at an error at 0-30 to the good.

He recovers his composure though to set up 15-40 and two break points.

Andy Murray keeps his hand in with hold to love. There was belief stirring somewhere in that game.

Stan Wawrinka has another chance to try and finish this contest on his own tee-off however.

The Swiss has been flaky in the past. A full-blown case of the colly-wobbles needed now for Murray.

If this is the start of a comeback, Andy Murray has left it late.

The Scot pumps his fist to the crowd and urges more volume.

He was flatlining in the match. Can that be the game that jump-starts his game?

Wawrinka back to deuce

Stan Wawrinka makes his way back to deuce and it is Andy Murray who is standing in the tea-pot pose, staring at his strings and the lines in turn and in disbelief.

Andy Murray in a world of pain now.

He will go to bed tonight with nightmares of flashing Wawrinka backhands for company.

Stan serves for the match next.

A severe case of the jitters is the Scot's main hope.

Stan Wawrinka is not just demonstrating the textbook to Andy Murray, he is swatting the Scot around the head with it.

A lovely backhand stab on the stretch hugs the line perfectly to put the Swiss 0-30 up.

Murray pumps long on the forehand and folds into a scream of anguish. Break point Wawrinka.

Stan Wawrinka has struck 24-carat backhand gold.

That glorious one-handed flourish is unfurled to devastating effect. Murray is left groping at thin air.

Wawrinka holds to love. Another two service games like that and he is home and hosed...

Murray 6-7 (3-7) 2-3 Wawrinka*

Andy Murray breezes through a serve game to love. A bit of respite for the British kingpin.

But he can't bunker down and take cover. He has to come out fighting if he is to hang around beyond tonight in this tour finale.

Andy Murray's eyes stray up to the rafters where his coach Jonas Bjorkman and wife Kim are sitting in the gloom.

His errors return as he strikes a return long off a Wawrinka second serve and then floats a backhand long as the Swiss holds serve.

Wawrinka taken to deuce

England rugby player Danny Cipriani is the crowd tonight, combining a leather biker jacket with some scholarly specs.

He is sat next to former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Kirsty Gallacher, daughter of Ryder Cup legend Bernard, in the celeb pen.

They will be leaning a little closer in now. Murray has taken Wawrinka to deuce from 40-0 down...

Murray 6-7 (3-7) 1-2 Wawrinka*

Andy Murray with no margin for error now.

Does he still believe that his weekend will include a river taxi to the O2 Arena?

He keeps that possibility alive as he holds off Wawrinka, clinging onto serve to 30.

Murray is on the ropes though, no doubt.

Stan Wawrinka's backhand - the weapon that wrecked Novak Djokovic's chances in the French Open - is starting to spray winners.

Two sickly sweet strikes off that wing zip away for clean winners as the Swiss backs up the break with a hold to love.

Might Andy Murray's mind be slipping towards an area the size of Belgium and Great Britain's upcoming Davis Cup final?

Wawrinka breaks

Murray 6-7 (3-7) 0-1 Wawrinka*

Only one of Andy Murray's eight wins over Stan Wawrinka has come from a set down.

He needs to turn this tanker around sharply.

Wawrinka has 15-30 and then 30-40 and break point as he smokes a backhand down the line.

Trademark Stan and a chance to apply more boot to bottom.

Murray nets! He is looking at the rough end of a break and a set down.

He fought so hard and got himself in a good position, but unforced errors costs him. It was a disappointing end to the set.

Murray really did go AWOL from 4-2 up and he's going to have to do it the hard way if he's going to qualify for the semi-finals.

Game and first set

Andy Murray dashes his racquet to the floor.

Another basic error. Stan Wawrinka has 6-4 and two set points.

He only needs the one. Murray gets lucky with a net cord that just about makes it over, but he fails to make the most of his get-out-of-jail card, cuffing a lob wide.

This is tight-rope knife-edge tennis.

Wawrinka holds for 2-2. A weakling of second serve on the next though - and Murray's roundhouse backhand return finds the mark, streaking away for a winner.

Murray 3-2 up with the mini-break.

And he consolidates on serve for a 4-2 lead. Has Stan gone back into his shell?

Tie-break

1-0 to the Swiss.

Murray misses with his first serve. A mammoth rally, Murray chasing the rubber off his soles and he finally draws the error from Wawrinka.

And he wins the next point in more straightforward style. 2-1 Murray and on serve.

Paul StaveleyMurray has the game to beat anyone but the big three. Their mental strength is all that separates them from him though.

*Murray 5-6 Wawrinka

Stan Wawrinka clocks back in.

He holds to love to show that he is over that heartache of serving for the set and failing to seal the deal.

From Manics to primal scream

Wawrinka backhand remains my favourite shot in tennis. Something primal about it.

Murray emptiness?

During a break after one game, the 02 crowd were treated to a bit of the Manic Street Preachers on the arena's sound system - 'If You Tolerate this..."

The song reached number one in 1998, when Murray was 11 and Wawrinka just into his teens.

Stan Wawrinka has been ticked off with some in the crowd expressing their support for Andy Murray just as he was tossing up in the last game.

His mood does not look like it has improved as Murray tickles in a delicate fluttering drop-shot to on his way to the game.

The Scot has pulled back up alongside the Swiss on the scoreboard.

Incredible defence from Murray, he was on full stretch for six or seven shots in a row. Andy read the game perfectly. Great movement, great fight.

Oh my.

What a rally. Andy Murray seems to be at Stan Wawrinka's mercy on at least two occasions, but each time he did just enough as Wawrinka did not quite commit.

And finally Wawrinka flops a lazy volley into the floor, allowing Murray to scamper onto the ball to ping away a winner into the unguarded open court.

Murray 3-5 Wawrinka*

Andy Murray has a look down the line on the forehand.

He takes up the challenge. But it is over-cooked and Murray's features rearrange into a grimace.

Deuce.

But a deft backhand volley dies perfectly to give Murray a second break point.
