Britain’s Andy Murray (113And WC)

Andy Murray (ATP-113) gave the Australian public something to eat. The Briton is still working his way up the world rankings and put Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili (ATP-23) aside in the first round after four hours of tennis. This is Murray’s first win there since the 2017 edition.

Murray has been a finalist in Melbourne five times, but the Briton has had particularly tough times in recent years. Due to constant injuries, he has been out three times since 2017 and in 2019 he lost his first match. Then he also announced that he was considering quitting smoking.

But after a new groin surgery, he now appears to be completely back. On the first lap, he was on the track for 4 hours.

“It’s great to be back here in the second round,” Murray said afterwards.

The two-time Olympic champion and three-time Grand Slam qualifier will face Japan’s Taro Daniel (ATP-120) in the second round.
