Even if Andy Murray had a rather good draw at this Roland Garros edition, the seed no.2 has been struggling to find his way in the tournament. In the first round,  Andy defeated Radek Stepanek 3-6 3-6 6-0 6-3 7-5 after playing Monday and Tuesday; yesterday, Murray defeated the world no.164 Mathias Bourgue 6-2 2-6 4-6 6-2 6-3. The Scot played a very strange match against the Frenchman to be annihilated after he was leading 6-2 2-0 without breaking a sweat; Andy lost eight consecutive games to find himself on a 6-2 2-6 0-2 score-line. Eventually, his opponent won also the 3rd set, and Murray had to dig deep to win the match in 5 sets.



 

Murray. He started to play unbelievable

At the end of the match, Andy gave full credit to his opponent “I was thinking, ‘What happened?’ I had a 6-2, 2-0 lead, and then he started playing unbelievable, and I was finding it hard to win points, not so much just games. It was a very big turnaround, and I’ve played these matches many times. Sometimes your opponent can lose a little bit of concentration, maybe play a bad game here or there. I just tried to fight through to the end.”

WILL MURRAY FIND HIS BEST TENNIS AT THIS YEAR’S FO??

 

Next vs. Karlovic

Andy will play Ivo Karlovic in the 3rd round. The head to head is 6-0 for Murray that is again the favorite, but nowadays you’ll never know.

Head to head Karlovic vs. Murray
