Andy Murray regained to peak form after defeating Christopher O’Connell on Monday during his first appearance at the Dubai Tennis Champions since winning it in 2017. With this victory, he boosted his ATP record to 17-4.
Despite losing the first set, Andy Murray held his cool and won the following two sets, 6-3 and 7-5, in over three hours. He was frustrated early in the game since he couldn’t seem to find his game. According to PTI, Andy Murray stated, “I managed to serve a little better as the match progressed, which helped me a lot, and I just managed to tough it out in the end.”
In the second round, he will face either fourth seed Jannik Sinner or Alejandro Davidovich Fokina as he hopes to win his 700th career game.
