Murray ekes out win in Washington — ATP roundup

Murray ekes out win in Washington — ATP roundup

"That gives me a bit more confidence, if I can get myself into good shape again, that my level will be good enough to allow me to compete for the big competitions again". Edmund got the win in their last meeting in Eastbourne, where the new British No.1 Edmund won with the loss of just eight games in that second round clash.

"At the time I didn't feel like I was quite ready to play five-set matches", the Scot said.

Murray played three matches in late June before withdrawing from Wimbledon to better recover from the operation. "Obviously if you lose a match like that, it's a tough one".

The three-time grand slam victor, who withdrew from Wimbledon having lost to Nick Kyrgios at Queen's Club last month but beat Stan Wawrinka in Eastbourne before falling to fellow Brit Kyle Edmund, earned just his second victory of the year.

Murray underwent hip surgery in January after the hip ailment slowed him in 2017. Murray made the most of it when McDonald hit a forehand long to end matters at 12:45 a.m. Tuesday after two hours and 37 minutes. "I've never met him before, so it's very cool".

"If I am out here losing first round every single week, I am not going to enjoy that as much", he said. The Citi Open is just his third tournament of the year.

The infection very likely entered Manteufel's system by a lick from a dog, probably his own. "It's just chance", Munoz-Price said. It caused Manteufel's blood pressure to drop and the circulation in his limbs to decrease rapidly.

Murray now faces Kyle Edmund in the second round.

Murray also spoke on working for BBC as a commentator during Wimbledon, and in particular for the quarter-finals match between Juan Martin del Potro and Rafael Nadal: 'It was fun to do it and it was the first time in a long time that I've watched a match as a spectator.

Murray, whose world ranking has dropped to 832, broke in the ninth game of the second set to take a 5-4 lead and served out to take the match to a decider. Rubin now faces No. 2 seed John Isner, Jaziri plays No. 1 seed and defending champion Alexander Zverev, while Smyczek meets Zverev's older brother, No. 15 seed Mischa.

His lone win on grasscourts came over Swiss Stan Wawrinka, another three-time Grand Slam victor fighting back from a left knee injury. Murray held on a service victor to force a third set.

United States wild card Noah Rubin beat Russian Mikhail Youzhny 6-4, 6-4 to reach a second-round match against USA second seed John Isner.
