Former World No. 1 Andy Murray has reached the second final of the year at the ATP Stuttgart Open beating Nick Kyrgios. The Briton came past the Australian with a score of 7-6(5), 6-2. He also had beaten Stefanos Tsitsipas previously in the quarterfinals, a huge upset as the Greek had been so good this season but Murray is a grass expert.
Murray’s victory over top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas with a score of 7-6 (7/4), 6-3 on Friday to advance to the Stuttgart semi-finals, was his first top-five wins since 2016 as the player suffers health issues and hip problems that don’t allow him to stand on his own for long resulting in early exits at several tournaments. Murray was playing in his first tour-level semi-final since 2016 when he defeated Tomas Berdych in straight sets before overcoming Milos Raonic to win his last Grand Slam singles title at Wimbledon.
British legendary player is now one win away from being seeded at the Wimbledon championship that starts at the end of this month. Murray’s grass season has started off well, with victories over some top players, and he will now face Wimbledon finalist Matteo Berrettini of Italy in the Stuttgart Open final tomorrow for the title. Coming back from an injury layoff, the Italian defeated Oscar Otte to earn a position in the final.
