On paper, this Rogers Cup final seemed like an impending defeat for Andy Murray, as he had to face the world’s number one, Novak Djokovic. An impossible win for the Scotsman that had previously lost all his last eight duels versus the notorious Djokovic. His latest victory was during the Wimbledon finals all the way back in 2013. But this time things happened differently, ninth time is the charm one could say as Murray won in three set with 6-4, 4-6, 6-3.
All in all this was the ninth time that Murray got away with a win against the powerful Serbian tennis player that has won 19 matches in total against him.
This victory means that he went up in the Rankings at a comfortable second place taking Roger Federer’s place as he did not compete in Rogers Cup.
With this great achievement, Andy Murray has the best possible start on US Open that will begin by the end of the month.
