Andy Murray Won The Last 23 Point Of His Match – “It’s Not Easy To Do” He Says!

Struggling to close out qualifier Vincent Millot, Wimbledon champion Andy Murray had one of the most remarkable finishes to a match not just in his history but also in recent memory.

Murray, who dominated the Frenchman early, led by two sets but found himself down 51 and having to fight off set points in the third. That’s when the Scot turned on his game remarkably winning 23 straight points to close out the match 62, 62, 75.

Murray admitted he didn’t even realize the streak he was on until some shouted from the Rod Laver Arena stands.

“I would say that’s probably the most I’d ever won in my career by far,” Murray said. “I mean, it’s very difficult to do. I don’t really know how I did it. But, yeah, I didn’t realize until I went to serve for the match.

“It’s not easy to do either,” he added. “Good way to finish the match.”

Murray, a 3-time Australian Open finalist, moves on to play Feliciano Lopez in the third round on Saturday.

Michael Says:

It might be a bit premature to comment on Andy’s form based on his performance in the first two rounds. But let me stick my neck out and say what I saw. Andy is looking all primed up and is slowly re-discovering his form at his favourite tournament. He can definitely be fancied for the title.

Margot Says:

Lol Andy, giving his fans a compulsory “behind the sofa” time out in the third set, b4 he woke up! Even worse when we heard the physio had been called, but turned out to be for Millet.
Go Andy!
