Murray Masters Foki In Gijon

Briton to meet Cachin or Vatutin next in Spain

Under pressure early from Alejandro Davidovich Fokina on Tuesday at the Gijon Open, Andy Murray found a moment of magic to trigger a stunning turnaround at the ATP 250 event in Spain.

Murray pulled off a difficult forehand volley on the stretch at 2-4, 30/40 to avoid going a double break down in the first set of his first-round clash against the Spanish sixth seed. It proved a pivotal moment in the pair’s maiden ATP Head2Head meeting, as the Briton held serve for 3-4 before raising his level to claim 10 of the next 13 games and storm to a 7-5, 6-2 victory.

The former World No. 1, who is competing as a wild card at the ATP 250 event in north-west Spain, will take on Pedro Cachin or qualifier Alexey Vatutin in the second round.
