European Open: Andy Murray wins his first trophy in almost three years in Antwerp
European Open He beat Stan Wawrinka in the final
For the first time since March 2017, Andy Murray has won a tournament as the former world number one beat Stan Wawrinka in three sets in the final of the European Open in Antwerp.
Winning 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, the Scot came back from behind to beat Wawrinka, despite being ranked in position 243 at the start of the week.
Wawrinka recently returned to the top 20 after suffering injury problems of his own and he started strongly but could not fight back from the comeback from Murray, who put the pressure on from the second set onwards.
The win is Murray‘s 46th trophies and sees him soar 116 places in the world ranking, meaning he will find himself in 127th on Monday.
In the presentation of the trophy, the 32-year-old could not hide his emotions though he also admitted that he couldn’t wait to leave to go and accompany his wife, Kim Sears, who is pregnant with their third child.
