will face now Alexander Zverev in the second round

“It was really tough,” Murray told Prime Video.

“We have never played or trained against each other. I didn’t know exactly how the match was going to go and it took me a while to get used to his game.

“He’s a very aggressive player and takes a lot of risks, playing high-risk tennis.

“He rolled the dice at the end and he seemed to gain momentum and thankfully he made a few mistakes in the middle of the tie-break and I was able to turn the situation around.

He (Zverev) was one of the best players in the world and just got back from a bad injury at the French Open last year.

“Right now he’s going to improve every week. He’s not quite back to his old level, but injuries take time.

“I hope I can continue to build on that.”
