Andy Murray has found that even after 16 years of being a professional, you can try something new. On Tuesday, the Briton made his tournament debut in Stockholm. In the first round match he defeated 6: 1, 7: 6 (7) qualifier Viktor Durasovich, in the second match defending the group ball.

– I started very well, after that he was playing better and better and he felt more comfortable as the match progressed. It was a great finish and she managed to win the second half, said Murray, who sent six aces and scored three breaks in 98 minutes of play.

In the second round, the wild card holder will face the top seed Jannik Sinner. He’s having a great season and was unlucky not to qualify for the ATP Finals. He loves to play in the gym, so it would be a good test for me – he rated the tennis player from Dunblane.

Taylor Fritz also began the struggle in the Stockholm Open with a certain victory. The number five sent eight aces, scored 38 of the 48 matches he played alone and defeated Igor Gerasimov 6:4, 6:4, the “lucky loser” in the playoffs. In the second round, Fritz will play fellow countryman Tommy Ball.

Butch van de Zandschulp also advanced to the 1/8 finals, beating lucky loser Nino Serdarusic after two tiebreaks, and his next challenger would be Marton Fukowicz.
