On Thursday, Murray defeated Alexandre Muller in the Doha quarterfinals 4-6, 6-1, 6-2.

Yeah, I’m putting myself in a position now, you know, to do that in the last two games, and of course, the players that are still in the tournament, it’s not going to be easy. With each one of these wins, I’m going to build more and more confidence and, you know, I hope to continue to start matches a little bit quicker, a little bit better for it.
