French Open: Sir Murray Sees Off Opponent In A 94 Minute Match

World number one Andy Murray came from a set down to beat unseeded Slovakian Martin Klizan in the French Open second round.

The Briton won 6-7 (3-7) 6-2 6-2 7-6 (7-3) and goes on to face Argentina’s Juan Martin del Potro.

It was Murray’s 18th win of a season that has been interrupted by illness and injury.

“I expected it to be very tough,” said Murray. “He goes for huge shots and on his forehand he can hit winners anywhere on the court.

“Sometimes you think you have hit a good shot and then he comes up with unbelievable power from a defensive position. It was very tough.

“I tried to play a solid match. As it went on I hit deeper and started to dictate more points.”
