Andy Murray

At the Open championship of France started the matches of the second round.

Playing with fire

In the preview for the match between Andy Murray and Matthias about Burke on the official website of Roland Garros said that it’s a big day for the Frenchman. But hardly anyone would have thought that it would turn out so gorgeous and 22-year-old winner of the “wild card” plenty of chases the second racket of the world on the court, forcing the opponent to spend trehmetrovy second match in two days.

Yesterday Murray played his first round match with Radek Stepanekin the fifth set having big problems and being two points from defeat. Andy then managed thanks to the incredible expenditure of energy to break the resistance of the uncompromising Czech. Perhaps it is the lack of physical strength played havoc with the British and one of the favorites of the tournament nearly flew from 164th tennis player in the world rankings.

Three hours and 34 minutes slave the Queen fussed on the court about Burke. It would seem, losing only two games the opponent in the first set, Andy will easily deal with the enemy, but it was not there. The Frenchman just gave a phenomenal performance in the following two sets, looks amazing in the draws against a big opponent, varying the pace of the game with great acting and cropped at the reception. Burke led 2:1 in sets and Murray had to change something. Fortunately, Andy knows a lot about comebacks and is one of the most nekomimi tennis players of the tour, because, though with difficulty, but managed to rebuild and to give a powerful ending of the match, losing only five games to an opponent in the last two segments.

“He was great, dominated in many jokes, made me run even in the fifth set when I had the lead. Mathias certainly has a great future, – said after the game Murray. – What happened? I was winning after the first set, took a break, but he suddenly began to act incredibly, it became difficult to earn points. Again, the opponent was very good.”

One word – marathoners

Unlikely Andy thrilled when I knew the name of his next opponent, after all, to face the Scot in the third round will be the master of the game on the serve of Ivo Karlovic, and Murray is unlikely to avoid tie-breaks in the game with the Croatian veteran. Today is the 28th rank number stayed on the court even more of a future opponent, also in five sets arguing with Jordan Thompson. In the game against the Aussie Karlovich 41 duty to shoot ACE, but in the decisive game spent a total of 22 games.

French fans today beheld three matches in which there were five sets. Delighted local audiences Gilles Simon, issued the comeback against Guido Pegli. The Argentinian was leading with the score 2:0, but then gave the game thread is more experienced in long fights the opponent. Pella played as many as seven match points, however, the factor helped Simon stands to make a holiday on the French street.
