Murray Brings It Back


Andy Murray was moved to tears by his tournament win at the Shenzhen Open where he defeated Tommy Robredo by 5 match points. This was the end of a dry spell for Murray as his last glorious win was in July 2013 at Wimbledon. This was the Scots 29th tour-level crown and had improved to a 29-14 final record.

Murray was at the brink of defeat but came back and won the match after a 5-7 7-6 (11/9) 6-1 victory.

Sky Sports reports Murray saying, “I got lucky, basically, at the end of the second set. I fought hard, tried my best and thankfully managed to turn it round. Tommy had a great tournament…He probably deserved to win the match today. He had the opportunities in the second set, but sometimes that happens in sport. I just tried to fight till the end.”

Entering the modest Shenzhen Open strengthened his prospects to qualify for Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London for his seventh consecutive year. But he still has some work to do. Murray showed his frustration by throwing his racket to the floor after his loss to the worlds number one, Novak Djokovic at the China Open.

But after his win against Jerzy Janowicz at the China Open, the 27 year old Scot is on track to return to his best formthat saw him claim the Wimbledon crown in 2013.
