Andy Murray improved on yesterday performance with a good victory against Janko Tipsarevic at the Aegon Championships. Murray who had lost to the Serb on three occasions, including their first meeting on the same Queen’s Club Centre Court five years ago won the 3rd round match today 6-4 7-6 (7-3).
After dropping his serve in the opening game, he recovered to level the set at 3-3, with Murray leading 5-4, the rain once again forced play to halt, after an hour the players returned and it was Murray’s turn to break immediately on the resumption of play to take the first set.
In the second set, the Serbian broke once again at the start of the set and then saved two break points in his next service game, but Murray soon levelled at 4-4. No more breaks of serve would follow and it would come down to a tie-break, which Murray won comfortably 7-3.
After the match Murray was cornered as he walked of court by the BBC,
I thought it was a high-quality match, We both played very well, especially at the end of the second set. There were a lot of long rallies and it was a really good test. I fell down a couple of times [but] luckily the ankle’s fine, it’s the best it’s felt.
Murray will face Marin Cilic in the quarter finals on Friday.
