After some time the former world number one Andy Murray reached the third round of a Grand Slam tournament, showed great progress and an excellent physical condition and gave up after a wonderful test to an excellent Matteo Berrettini with our athlete who won in four sets.
Murray fought in the first two sets with the blue who deserved to win them, Andy did not give up and in the third set he canceled several break points and won the partial at the tie-break. In the fourth, going forward by a break he had let believe in an incredible comeback but Matteo then increased ‘the laps’ and closed the challenge thus qualifying for the Round of 16.
After the race, the former world number one talked about the challenge also showing some regret for the defeat. Here are his words: “I played with a rather poor serve for most of the match and this hurt me a lot.
I couldn’t find a rhythm with the serve and only in the third set did things improve. I also improved in exchanges, he served very well and scored several free points on his serve. I think this thing really made a difference “
Andy Murray and the match analysis
The British champion then continued: “The worst part for me came in the fourth set when I got the break ahead. It could have changed the race but I didn’t do well.
I haven’t played a match like that for some time and I’m surprised to have been able to compete with a tennis player against someone as good as him and especially given the situation in which I find myself. I remember that I have a metal hip, it is not easy to play with and indeed it is really difficult.
I am surprised that he is still able to compete with the best players and I am proud of matches like this. There is disappointment for not having won, but this is the first time I have reached the third round here since the tour. It’s been a very difficult six years and I hope to go further in the future “Photo Credit: Instagram Us Open
