It took Scotland’s Andy Murray a mere 48 minutes to knock out American Donald Young 6-2, 6-0 to claim the Thailand Open title on Sunday in Bangkok.
“I just played really well, Murray said. “Towards the end of the first set he started to play a bit better, but once I got up in the second I hardly made any mistakes. Felt like I was moving well, so it was difficult for him to hit any clean winners. I served very well throughout and didn’t give him any opportunities. It was a great match.
“In terms of the way I’m playing it’s very good to get off to a start like that on this stretch and hopefully I can continue that through Shanghai. It’s a very good start. Roger (Federer) always plays very well on the European indoor courts, so I’m sure I’m going to have to win a lot more matches if I want to finish No. 3. That’s the goal and I’ll keep working hard to give myself a shot at doing that.”
The victory was Murray’s third tournament win of the season, 19th in his professional career
