Andy Murray won his second title in Cincinnati, defeating world number 1 Novak Djokovic in the final on Sunday.
The victory though was not how Murray would have wanted to win as Djokovic was foreced to retire with a shoulder injury when Murray was leading 6-4, 3-0.
The title is Murray’s second of the season, after winning the Queens Club title in June. This was also Murray’s seventh Masters 1000 crown and 2nd in Cincinnati. Murray first won the title in 2008, it was his first ever masters title and he also defeated Djokovic in the 2008 final.
It’s only Djokovic’s second loss this season, having cloked up 57 wins already and 9 titles along the way.
After his win today Murray spoke on court,
It was really a good week after I struggled last week. I didn’t drop a set and beat some very good players from pretty much the first round onwards. Against Nalbandian who I started off against it was tough, and then Mardy was playing really good tennis going into the semis. I would have obviously liked to have won by finishing the match, but it happens sometimes. I have to look at the week as a whole. It’s been a very good week. Coming in here I had played badly in Montréal, so I needed to have a good week. Regardless of the match today, I was happy with the way that it had gone. Glad I managed to win today, but unfortunate the way it happened.
