Murray Wins 2011 Thailand Open

Andy Murray Wins Bangkok Tennis

Andy Murray continued his strong year claiming his third title of the year. In the final he outclassed American Donald Young 6-2 6-0 in 48 minutes to win his first Thailand Open.

On winning in Bangkok Murray said,

I barely made any errors. I was able to take all of my opportunities. It was a great match for me. I played very well, by far my best match of the tournament. I made it difficult for him to do anything. He picked up a bit in the middle of the first set but by the second I was in control.

Murray had suffered a shock defeat to Young in Indian Wells in March but he exercised any of those demons at the US Open last month and he now leads their career head-to-head 2-1.

Earlier in the week Murray had beaten Germany’s Michael Berrer 6-4 6-2 in his opening round. He then took out up and coming star Grigor Dimitrov in straight sets 6-4 6-4 before facing his toughest test in the semi finals against world number 12 Gilles Simon. That encounter went the distance with Murray coming out the winner 6-2 3-6 6-2.

The final today was Young’s first ever ATP final and this was also the event where Murray made his ATP final debut 6 years ago. On that day Murray lost to then world number 1 Roger Federer 3-6 5-7.

Murray noe head to Japan to compete in the Rakuten Japan Open Tennis event, which will also feature world number two Rafael Nadal.
