#Forbes – #Tennis: At #USOpen, #AndyMurray Joins Select Group With 10th Comeback From Two Sets Down

Andy Murray joined a select group of tennis players with his five-set first-round win at the U.S. Open on Tuesday.

It’s not a group Murray likely would have wanted to join entering the match, but he’ll take it now that it’s over.

By completing a 4-6, 4-6, 7-6(5), 7-6(4), 6-4 victory over Japan’s Yoshi Nishioka in 4 hours, 39 minutes, Murray secured his 10th career comeback from two-sets down. He saved a match point in the fourth set and went on to join a group that includes Boris Becker, Roger Federer and Aaron Krickstein among players with 10 comebacks from two-sets down. Murray’s comebacks include nine in Grand Slam events and one in Davis Cup.

Murray improved to 15-0 in first rounds at the U.S. Open, and will next face Canadian sensation and No. 15 seed Felix Auger Aliasimme, who advanced in four sets.
