At the Australian Open in 2023, Andy Murray reverses time and defeats Matteo Berrettini in a five-set epic

Andy Murray defeated Matteo Berrettini in the first round of the Australian Open on Tuesday by an epic score of 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 6-7, 7-6, 10-6. The Italian, ranked 13, was disqualified from the contest.

The 35-year-old Scot won the first two sets under the roof of Rod Laver Arena with the majority of the crowd in his palm. However, he ended up in a long, attritional fight almost intentionally.

Murray has finished in second place five times in the tournament, but he has never won it. Berrettini has not always performed well at Melbourne Park, where he showed up ready to level the match after a lengthy break between sets.

However, Murray never wavered in his resolve, and after saving a match point in the 10-point tiebreak, he won the match with incredible luck by returning a bunted forehand that hit the net and denied Berrettini any opportunity.

After the four-hour, 49-minute struggle, Murray stated in court, “I’ll be feeling this this evening and tomorrow, but right now I’m just unbelievably happy, just proud of myself.” “I put in a lot of work with my team, who are here to give me the opportunity to perform in stadiums like this… and it paid off tonight,” the player continued.

The successful Italian, who defeated Thanasi Kokkinakis in the third round against Fabio Fognini, will take on Murray. In the third set, when he was leading 2-1, the 35-year-old could have saved his legs a few hours of work by winning a break point, but he threw in a forehand and missed the chance.

Despite Murray channeling his 2016 glory and producing a highlight reel of angled winners, Berrettini made the most of his reprieve and served like a machine to level the match. Four months after Murray’s exit from the U.S. Open in the third round, Berrettini appeared to be Murray’s new Grand Slam opponent. With a 5-4 lead in the fifth set, the Italian, who reached the semifinals last year, staged a devastating comeback to earn match point.

He stated, “Could have, you know, been different just with a different ball.”
