Sports Gist: Andy Murray extends his Unbeaten Streak
Andy Murray advanced to the quarter-finals of the Qatar Open after battling past Austria’s Gerald Melzer 7-6 (8-6) 7-5 on Wednesday.
“He played great, great tennis, he was dominating large parts of the match and dictating a lot of the points and made it extremely difficult “. Murray said about Melzer.
“If he plays like that this year, he’ll climb higher up the rankings and I was lucky to get through in two sets today.
“We’ve never practised or played against each other before and I told him if he keeps playing like that he’s going to get up there in the rankings. He’s playing much better than 69 in the world. He’s fairly young so he’s going to get better and better.”
Murray feels the game is getting harder and harder every year as the men seem to be competitive this year.
“Today is a perfect example of the depth in the men’s game just now,” he said. “It was an extremely difficult match and I felt I played pretty good just now. I served well and was returning well, but he was hitting the ball huge from both sides. The depth is great now so you have to be prepared for every match.”
