Murray, 35, turned back the clock at the start of the 2023 season.

In the first round of the Australian Open, Murray saved a match point en route to defeating Matteo Berrettini. In his next match, Murray rallied from straight sets to beat Thanasi Kokkinakis in a match that lasted nearly six hours.

Last week in Doha, Murray saved three match points against Lorenzo Sonego and five more in the semi-final against Jiri Lehecka, respectively. “It hasn’t happened to me in my career before, I’m aware that the matches I’ve had this year have been ridiculous.

It seems like I’ve had six, seven matches in a row that were all epic. I had several conversations with my team last year, especially at the back, and I just couldn’t win a tight game. I was like, ‘When I win one or two of these, it’s going to change.

I’m not going to keep losing these games by a few points or a couple of games. Obviously, it’s been quite a dramatic change,» said Murray. After a second-place finish, Murray decided not to play in Dubai this week. Murray is expected to return to action at the Indian Wells Masters.
