Andy Murray thrills one more time with vintage display of underdog defiance

Tuesday 15:24 GMT

So, on a balmy summer’s evening in Melbourne, at a venue where he has suffered more than his fair share of heartache, Andy Murray played what may yet turn out to be his last ever match with almost 15,000 fans hanging on his every move.

Yet this was Murray, so there would be drama, moments of utter brilliance, of defiance, a reminder of the things that have made him so great. On the first point of the third set, finding himself pinned to the baseline and almost wrong-footed with Bautista Agut at the net, Murray dipped a backhand pass low.
