Andy Murray beat Kyle Edmund recently to secure a spot in the last 16 of the Citi Open, and we can’t but scream ‘The king is back! ‘
Murray continues his comeback from a nasty injury that sent him down the world rankings. He is down below the best 800 currently, but he keeps showing signs he will return back to his ‘proper place’ in no time.
In March, Kyle replaced Andy as British number one, but Murray just proved the 832 position he was being pushed to is nothing but an ‘error, by beating Edmund at the Citi Open in Washington.
On the court, Murray took the first set on a tiebreak after himself and his countryman held their first 5 service games before exchanging breaks.
Being leveled up together at 4-4 in the tie-break, Andy won the final three points against his opponent.
The following set was settled in 35 minutes, with Kyle winning 83% of his first serve points. Although he tried his best to fall Andy once again, the 31-year-old was able to scale through.
Andy was very much pleased with himself for winning the game amidst all, and he couldn’t hold back his excitement while speaking to the ATP Tour website.
Up next is a tie against Marius Copil, but he already sent a ‘I’m returning’ message to the fans.
