Andy Murray fears lucky streak will end soon after making winning start to Indian Wells

Andy Murray kicked his Indian Wells tournament off with a comeback victory over Tomas Martin Etcheverry.

Andy Murray feels as though his run of comeback victories are long overdue following some close matches last year, but admits the streak could soon come to an end. Murray has looked in good form in 2023 so far after reaching the third round of the Australian Open for the first time since 2017 before losing in the Qatar Open final last month.

He’s now back in action for the start of the ‘Sunshine Double’ at the BNP Paribas Open where he faced a tricky opening match against Tomas Martin Etcheverry. The Argentine took the opening set as Murray tried to find his feet in the match before embarking on another trademark comeback to win in three sets.

Murray going the distance in matches has become synonymous with his 2023 season so far as he’s won all seven matches that have gone to a deciding set so far. He went through the wringer in his first two Australian Open matches, coming back from two sets down against both Matteo Berrettini and Thanasi Kokkinakis.

And the three-time major champion came from a set down twice at the Qatar Open on his way to the final, where he lost to Daniil Medvedev. Murray would ideally get the matches wrapped up before a deciding set, but he’s clearly delighted that he’s won his fair share of matches when they’ve gone the full distance this year.
