Andy Murray And Cameron Norrie Are Comeback Kings

Locker Room

October 26, 2022

Andy Murray and Cameron Norrie both showed their fighting spirit to come from behind and notch important victories in Europe.

Murray and Norrie will be among the big attractions at Wimbledon 2023 too!

Popular Murray battled back to beat unknown quantity Roman Safiullin 6-7 (5-7), 6-3, 6-4.

But it wasn’t just going a set down that left Andy in trouble at the Swiss Indoors in Basel.

He looked as though he was coming seriously unstuck in the deciding set too. Murray trailed 1-4 and seemed to be heading for an early exit.

And that would have been even more embarrassing after Arsenal fan Murray had taken the trouble to tease the great Roger Federer on his arrival in the city.

Murray revealed: ‘I messaged Roger when I landed in Basel and said: “I just touched down in the city of one of the world’s greatest ever athletes – Granit Xhaka.”‘

The idea that the Arsenal midfielder could ever eclipse Federer in stature is of course absurd – and that was what made the message so funny.

But Federer would have had extra ammunition to tease his British friend, had Murray fallen at the first hurdle on his doorstep.

Fortunately, Andy was made of sterner stuff. He won the next five games of that crucial third set against Safiullin to guarantee his advance.

Murray now faces an even tougher test in the next round when he takes on an old rival, Roberto Bautista Agut.

Fellow Brit Jack Draper has also left his mark and reminded us why he will be a huge star at Wimbledon 2023.

Draper took a set off US Open champion Carlos Alcaraz on the opening day in Basel before he was finally edged out.

Meanwhile over at the Vienna Open, two other British men were shining.

Cameron Norrie had to emulate Murray’s comeback to defeat the Argentinian Pedro Cachin 3-6, 6-2, 7-6 (7-1).

The emphatic nature of that decisive tie-break will give the world number 13 added confidence going forward.

And Norrie needs a deep run in Austria to keep his hopes alive for the season-ending ATP Finals next month.

Another British veteran, Dan Evans also enjoyed that winning feeling in Vienna.

He beat tricky German Oscar Otte 6-4, 7-6 (7-3) to progress.

Will you come to Wimbledon 2023 to see the British stars raise the roof?

We can make sure you’re in some of the very best seats on the historic Centre Court next summer.
