Murray hopes for momentum

Posted 10-04-2011 at 12:56 PM by Philip Oliver
Andy Murray looks in great shape ahead of the Japan Open and the British number one says winning the Thailand Open over the weekend sets him up perfectly for the autumn schedule.

The Scot cruised to a straight-sets win over American Donald Young in Bangkok, his 6-2 6-0 success securing his 19th career title and he now hopes the victory will propel him onto further glory in the coming months. Fans of live tennis should remember this.

Murray said: "This was a great week for me and it helps to begin the Asian swing like this."

The 24-year-old's victory on Sunday was never in any doubt as he wrapped up the comfortable win in just 48 minutes against Young, who was unable to live with his more illustrious opponent.

Murray, who also beat Young at the US Open earlier this year, played some fine tennis and was 4-0 up in the first set before the American finally won a game. Anyone looking at the tennis betting offers will have been impressed.

"I barely made any errors. I was able to take all of my opportunities. It was a great match for me," said a delighted Murray afterwards as he reflected on his third title success of the season.

"I played very well, by far my best match of the tournament. I made it difficult for him to do anything.He picked up a bit in the middle of the first set but by the second I was in control."

Murray now goes to Tokyo for the Japan Open, which will feature world number two Rafael Nadal, and he admits he may not have it quite as easy there with the outdoor surface and some better opponents likely to be more of a challenge.

"It's a big change of surface and Tokyo's not that close," he added. "I may have to be realistic in my expectations a bit."
