#AndyMurray wins epic five-set battle with No. 13 seed #MatteoBerrettini at #AusOpen2023

Andy Murray won an epic five-set battle with No. 13 Matteo Berrettini on Tuesday in the opening round of the 2023 Australian Open.

The three-time grand slam winner had to save match point in the final set and rallied in the deciding tiebreak to win 6-3 6-3 4-6 6-7(7-9) 7-6(10-6) in the Rod Laver Arena.

After years of battling devastating injuries had left his tennis career in jeopardy, Murray struggled to hold back his emotions in the immediate aftermath as his achievement dawned on him.

The epic four hour and 49-minute-long victory was Murray’s first win over a top-20 opponent at a grand slam since 2017.

“I’ll be feeling this this evening and tomorrow, but right now, I’m just unbelievably happy, very proud of myself,” Murray said in his on-court interview afterwards.
