Murray

 

 

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.

For Young who ha career week, spoke about playing in his first ATP World Tour final,“he played well. I couldn’t do much and it showed in the score. It was great play from him. It was my first final on the ATP World Tour; I’ve had a semi and the fourth round of a slam, but there’s nothing like your first final. It’s great. I beat some high calibre players and I played well. It was definitely great to win four matches and I’m into the Top 50 which is great for me, it was one of my goals at the start of the year. I just hope I can build on that and have more tournaments like this.”

Murray has won 16 of his last 17 matches. Murray has already qualified for the year-end championships in London.

Young will move into the top 5o for the first time in next weeks rankings.
