Murray battles back to bounce out Janowicz « on: Yesterday at 06:33 PM »

Andy Murray recovered from a horror start to beat the heavy-hitting Pole Jerzy Janowicz 6-7(9), 6-4, 6-2 in Beijing today.

The Brit has made something of a habit of starting slow on this Asian swing and that trend continued in Beijing as he dropped his serve in his opening three service games to fall 1-5 down.

But Janowicz faltered and Murray took full advantage, going on a five game surge to turn the match on its head.

The Pole managed to stop the rot to take it to a tie-break but it looked to be to no avail as Murray raced to a 4-0 lead. The topsy-turve battle continued, however, this time Janowicz's turn to come roaring back, eventually taking the tie-break 11-9 after saving two set points.

The scrappy fight continued in set two as both players struggled to assert their dominance on the match.

But it was Murray who eventually made the breakthrough, finding a way through the Pole’s huge serve at the business end of the set before serving it out to level the match.

And the Brit was now starting to find his game, breaking early in the third as Janowicz struggled to stay with the resurgent Scot.

Murray broke again at 4-2 courtesy of a stunning forehand winner, and served it out without much ado to record his fifth successive victory and move into the second round.

Murray will take on the world number 35 Pablo Cuevas in the next round, with US Open champion Marin Cilic potentially awaiting in quarter finals.

Good report, Luke, many thanks. Watched this on the IPad, having lunch with a friend in a quiet corner of a local pub. Great way to watch tennis, tension doesn't seem to be so fierce. With Andy's matches it's not a bad  idea these days. Another fighting win , well done Andy.

thanks for good report Luke.  I think Andy can be forgiven a slow start this time given the circumstances but he isn't half putting us through it!  So glad he prevailed in the end.  He certainly seemed determined once he stopped the rot in the first set.  Onwards and upwards Andy.

Watching Andy is a little like watching Doctor Who when you were small, best to hide behind the sofa for much of it and come out the end when he wins.
