Australian Open > Murray, without pity for Berrettini: “He made a horrible blow on his match point”

If Andy Murray was rewarded for his efforts and his great fighting spirit by eliminating Matteo Berrettini in the first round of the Australian Open after a huge battle of 5 hours of play, the Briton is also perfectly aware that this match could also have turned bad.

Indeed, then trailing 4–5, 30–40 in the final set, Andy saw his Italian opponent make an incredible miss on a backhand penalty. A blow that he described as “horrible” during an interview with our colleagues fromEurosport. While considering himself very lucky.

“I had to work a lot in the last three months, I was playing really well in training and over the last few years, I was losing this kind of match. I remained fairly calm at the end of the match, I also had an excellent start to a great tie‐break, which helped me a lot. I also returned his first ball well and on exchanges I often took the initiative. I served intelligently throughout the match. And it must be said that he made a horrible blow on his match point (smiles), and I consider myself lucky. »
