‘Miracle man’: Tennis world erupts over Andy Murray moment

Andy Murray has stunned the tennis world after reaching his first ATP quarter-final since 2019.

The former World No.1 moved into the quarters of the Moselle Open in Metz on Wednesday with a convincing 6-3 6-3 win over Vasek Pospisil.



The victory was an excellent follow-up to his opening three-set win against World No.26 Ugo Humbert.

Murray had suffered a demoralising defeat in a low-key Challenger event in Rennes last week.



However he’s managed to bounce back impressively, breaking Pospisil in the seventh game of the opening set, which he closed out as the Canadian failed to hold again.

World No.66 Pospisil rallied at the start of the second set to immediately break the former World No.1 and then held to move 2-0 ahead.



But Murray remained composed to stay in the set and eventually broke back to level at 3-3.

A hold from Murray kept the pressure on before a couple of unforced errors from Pospisil saw the Briton serve for the match.

Murray obliged with an impressive hold, taking a first match point as Pospisil sent another return into the net.

“For me, this period of the last few years has been the most I have played really,” said Murray, who had pushed World No.3 Stefanos Tsitsipas to five sets in the first round of the US Open last month.

“My body feels good, and I am starting to gain just a little bit of confidence with each match, starting to see the points and how I want to play them, which is great.”

Fans were left in disbelief after Murray reached his first quarter-final at ATP level in two years.
