British number one Andy Murray secured a spot in the third round of BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells after beating Lukas Rosol from Czech Republic in 4-6 6-3 6-2.
Rosol, who defeated world number one Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon in 2012, showed a good performance at the beginning of the game. Murray, however, recovered to tie the match and break Rosol’s concentration.
According to Murray, he tried to play more aggressively in the second set. He further added that he got broken three times in a row towards the end of the first set, beginning of the second. He just kind of kept going and found a way to win, which is always the most important thing.
Murray also won in the men double’s tournament with fellow Briton Jonny Marray. They will face the pairing of Alexander Peya of Austria and Brazil’s Bruno Soares on Sunday, March 16, in the second round.
Murray will face another Czech player, Jiri Vesely, in the next event.
