“It really wasn’t pleasant to play in,” said Murray of the windy conditions after his win.
“It was really blustery, changing direction during the point, and we knew coming in it was going to feel uncomfortable. We hit on this court this morning and it was really breezy.

“So I was expecting it but it still adds a bit of stress to the match and it was a really tight first set. There were lots of opportinties each way, I managed to sneak through the tie-break and after that he was obviously a bit disappointed, and I relaxed a little bit.”

 

 

Both players made numerous unforced errors in the first set – Sonego committed 30 while Murray made 15 – but it was the Scot who took the opening set on the tie-break after an hour and 24 minutes in the wind.

Murray rescued two set points at 5-4 down before the pair went to a tie-break. Sonego won the first two points, but Murray responded by winning the next six and sealed it on his second set point.
