Andy Murray (ATP 156) has for the first time in almost a year, an official tenniszege booked. The Scot won in the first round of the ATP tournament in Eastbourne (grass/661.085 euro) of the Swiss Stan Wawrinka in two sets (6-1 and 6-3). His previous win dated back to Wimbledon last year.
It was a duel between two grandslamkampioenen that on the way back after long injuries. Murray made last week after a lingering hip injury his comeback on the tennis court of Queen’s. He lost in the first round of the Australian Nick Kyrgios. Wawrinka tries after a knee injury his old level back, but came this year not to impressive results.
Also against Murray made a triple grandslamwinnaar Wawrinka very little impression, while the British grasspecialist almost old-fashioned well-played. He dominated in the first set and left the Swiss in the second set, the errors.
In the second round will take Murray up against his compatriot Kyle Edmund (ATP 18), the second seed.
