At least he's through. Everyone knew he would be rusty.

I was quite impressed by Donskoy actually. He wasn't just a flashy shot-maker, he defended great too. Will be keeping an eye out for his progress in future.

Regarding Murray, he looked fine. After going 5-1 down he only lost 4 more games in the match.

Andy got the job done in usual Andy fashion. I'm glad he is rid of yet another curse. But I hope he can lift his level of play!

I thought he would have won the first set once he came back from 5-1 down.

Murray won. He wants to peak at the end of the tournament, not the beginning. So I wouldn't be too worried about his level of play here.

I have no idea why people are ragging on Murray like he can't play tennis these days excluding a 5-1 start, Donskoy won 6 games in over 2 sets of tennis.. last 2 sets were 6-2 6-2 easy enough. Murray had a bunch of break points in the 1st set, just didn't convert.. and furthermore Donskoy is not just some challenger player, he is talented and up and coming, he rallies well, and he hangs in there with the big guys but then seizes up in key moments and gets tired out (just like he did here) especially with his serve.

Murray almost always coasts through these early rounds, he hadn't played in 6 weeks, and thus wanted to start off by feeding Donskoy some balls and getting his feet wet a bit. After dropping that set though, just after almost breaking Donskoy, he righted the ship and figured it out, finishing the match off.. I really can't complain.
