‘I hit some great shots to finish’ – Andy Murray thrills again with another Wimbledon epic

Andy Murray continued his Wimbledon comeback this year as he rallied to overcome tricky German Oscar Otte in another five-set epic.

The former world number one started and finished the match very strongly, although he did struggle in between.

However, he showed all of his renowned fight and spirit to force his way back into the match after falling 2-1 down.

“I enjoyed the end,” Murray said after his 6-3, 4-6, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 win. “The middle part not so much. What an atmosphere to play in at the end.

“The whole crowd is amazing but there are a few guys in there that are getting me fired up. I needed everyone’s help tonight. They did a great job.

“I hit some great shots to finish it but it was a tough match.”

“I’m obviously tired and fell a couple of times. But considering everything I feel alright. The hips feel good.

“A rest day tomorrow and hopefully come out on Friday and play in an atmosphere like this.”

Things will get tougher for Murray in the third round, where he will face Canadian 10th seed Dennis Shapovalov.

The 22-year-old will also be fresh due to not having to play his second round match because of an injury to opponent Pablo Andjuar.
