Murray continues to rise: win a Masters game again

The Scotsman had not won a Masters 1,000 meeting since May 2017 at the Mutua Madrid Open. His rival in the second round will be Fognini.


Andy Murray starts to look like Andy Murray. The Scotsman already shows his recovery based on good results, and he surpassed the first round of the Shanghai Masters 1,000 by beating a combative Juan Ignacio Londero in three sets: 2-6, 6-2 and 6-3. Murray had not achieved a triumph in a Masters game since he did it there by May 2017 against Marius Copil (6-4 and 6-3) in the second round of the Masters in Madrid.

During the course of the match, the Scot fought each and every one of the balls, not giving a point for lost despite the initial dominance of Londero (6-2 in the first set). His hip problems seem completely overcome and if that is accompanied by his level of tennis and mental strength, it is already known that the Scotsman is a formidable tennis player. He endorsed the partial identical to the Argentine in the second round without disheveled.

In the third and final set it was Murray who managed to break the service of his rival in the fourth game (3-1), but the Argentine did not give up and immediately after he returned the break to the Scotsman. However, Murray did not accuse the reverse, clenched his teeth to achieve a new break immediately (4-2), and got an insurmountable advantage for his rival by certifying it with the service. In the second round, the Scotsman will have a hard pitfall to overcome in the figure of Fabio Fognini. The Italian, number 10 in the world, eliminated in his premiere the 'gunman' Sam Querrey 6-4 and 6-2.
