Andy Murray is unbeaten against the unorthodox Uzbekistani, who interestingly is coached by his mother, which I’m sure in some ways Murray can relate to, himself have a Mum who is heavily involved in tennis.

Murray’s wins have been close but still quite comfortable to date, Istomin’s defensive baseline play is unlikely to ever really hurt Murray as it plays into the Scots hands and his own natural defensive game is simply more proficient than Istomin’s.

They have met once at grand slam level, with Istomin winning is only set against Murray though winning comfortably in 4 sets.
