Tim Henman def. Andy Murray | 6-4 6-2

Henman seals first Murray victory

Henman lost to Murray in Cincinnati and Toronto this year
Tim Henman claimed his first victory over Andy Murray after a deserved 6-4 6-2 win over the Scot in the first round of the Thailand Open in Bangkok.

Henman, who had lost the three previous encounters with Murray, had a storming start and took a 5-2 opening set lead.

But the fourth seed bounced back to make the score 5-4 only for Henman to take the set after winning a lengthy and crucial 10th game.

And Henman sealed victory with the help of two early breaks in the second set.

Henman, who will now take on British number four Alex Bogdanovic in the second round, has slipped to 59 in the world after a disappointing season.

And after losing to Murray in Toronto and Cincinnati this year and in Switzerland in 2005, Henman was determined to stop the rot and produced an aggressive and determined display.

Murray seemed to feel the effects of helping Britain to a 3-2 Davis Cup win over Ukraine in Odessa last weekend.

The 19-year-old, who lost to Roger Federer in the final of this event last season, showed plenty of fight but only glimpses of the sparkling form which has propelled him up the rankings.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Well done, Tim.

Maybe Andy Murray was still recovering from getting beat up by that Thai boxing guy. Or has that happened yet?
