Andy Murray beats Kimmer Coppejans to return to winning ways in Europe

18 Octobre, 2019, 10:12 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

The former world No 1, making his first appearance at the European Open in Antwerp, battled past the Belgian wild card Kimmer Coppejans 6-4, 7-6 (4).

He fought well against Andy, though, securing three breaks from five opportunities and leading 3-1 in the second set before Andy erased the deficit and brought the victory home, thinking much more about his wife Kim who should give a berth to a child these days.

The Briton made a flying start, taking 12 of the first 15 points and earning a break in the second game when Kimmer sent a forehand long.

Norrie, ranked 61, had Lopez at 0-40 in the final game of the match but was unable to break back. He broke again in the 10th game to seal the set but had to come from a break down twice in the second to force the tiebreaker.

Murray will go up against either eighth seed Pablo Cuevas or Bolivia's Hugo Dellien who meet on Wednesday.

The 32-year-old Scot, who is continuing his comeback after having career-saving hip resurfacing surgery in January, was stretched by the wildcard in the second set but held his nerve to prevail in an hour and 44 minutes.

Seventh seed Jan-Lennard Struff dropped just three games in beating Gregoire Barrere, while Gilles Simon and Feliciano Lopez were among the other players to advance.

Monica Niculescu, the champion in 2016, was handed an easy route through after fourth seed Alison Van Uytvanck retired injured just six games into the first set.
