Two hours and fifty-three minutes: Andy Murray needs so much to cross the first round stumbling block in Dubai. The three-time Grand Slam champion, who finds O’Connell a decidedly difficult opponent, recovers a set of disadvantage and finds sufficiently valid weapons to avoid the tie break in the third and close with a mega-run of 8-1.
In the video we can watch all of the Scot’s super touch and amno skills, as well as his incredible speed!
The other matches
Novak Djokovic responds to the accusations, controversies and problems in the way he knows best.
How? With a win, of course. The Serbian champion returns to Dubai after almost two months of forced stop and against Lorenzo Musetti (who had made him despair on the red brick of Bois de Boulogne for two sets a little less than a year ago) closes the practice without particular problems.
The five-time champion of the tournament actually fixes the success at 6-3 6-3 and reaches at least in the second round the winner of the match between Karen Khachanov and Alex de Minaur. Eighty days after the victory with Marin Cilic in the Davis Cup, the leader of the group plays as per protocol a game of enormous quantity. In the list of surprises the misstep of Marin Cilic against Jiri Vesely.
