Like quite a few other top players, Andy Murray also had a tough start in his first match at Indian Wells, but, his performance got better and better as the action proceeded and he won eventually to get into the third round of the tournament.

Murray’s opponent in the match was Lukas Rosol who is not quite in the league of the Scot. So, it was supposed to be more of a one sided contest.

But, Rosol who is a couple of years elder to Murray in age stunned everyone as he won the first set in comprehensive fashion. He just outsmarted his Scot opponent in that whole set which made people start wondering if an upset was going to happen, but, that wasn’t the case to be.

Murray came into the second set with ruthless approach and banged some powerful shots in to disturb Rosol’s rhythm. Once he did that, it was all too easy for him. He collected points frequently from that stage and ensured the exit of his Czech opponent from the tournament.

This was the first time ever that Murray and Rosol was playing a singles match against each other.

Talking to the reporters in the post match interview, Murray said, “Lukas is one of those guys who generate a lot of power. So, it’s important for you as an opponent not to let him dominate and that’s what my game plan was in the last two sets. I was on the attack so that I could unsettle him.”

“It’s not quite easy to bounce back from the situation which I was in at one point of time. Your character gets tested in such situations.”

Murray will be locking horns with another Czech player in the third round i.e. Jiri Vesely.
