At 7-5 6-4 down to Adrian Mannarino things didn’t look to be going the way of Andy Murray and an early exit from Flushing Meadows was on the cards with the Brit failing to take break points and in all honesty the was no intensity, aggression or control in rallies it was like watching a practice session for the first two sets however never ever write off Andy Murray.
I wasn’t worried at all as I have seen Murray drag himself out of these positions time and time again and the tennis he produced in the final three sets was simply outstanding. What a love about Murray’s game is that never give up attitude and he chases every ball down and won an incredible point in the third set which he took 6-1. In the fourth set Murray found himself a break up early on in the set as well and at 5-3 when Mannarino was serving to stay in the set he was broken and Murray took the set 6-3.
Even though there was a set to go there only looked like being one winner and Murray came through to win in five sets to win 5-7 4-6 6-1 6-3 6-1 and will face Tomasz Bellucci on Saturday in the third round
Just a bit of trivia to end the piece with, the last time Murray won from 2 sets down in a Grand Slam match and won her went on to win Wimbledon in 2013…
