Four weeks of formidable tennis have come to an end for Andy Murray.
His season isn’t over yet as he is expected to take part in the Davis Cup Finals which begin on the 18th of November but will be heading back home now after a successful return to the ATP tour.
With his Wife Kim expected to give birth this week this meant his season would end in Antwerp despite the offer of a wildcard into the ATP 500 event in Vienna.
You can only look at these four weeks as positive and this run to the title was magnificent!
Andy will finish around top 130 in the world having been ranked 503 in the world three weeks ago.
Against Stan he was broken his first service game of the first set and second service game of the second set. Despite early breaks he was ultra-competitive against Stan in rallies with the first three games taking 17 minutes.
Second set was a worry down 1-3 and then 15-40 with the potential of it running away from him but he continues to hustle, grind and stay in touch getting back to 3-3 and leading 5-4 saving five break points.
In winning and defeats sometimes you just have to tip your hat. The effort and attitude from Andy Murray was faultless.
To come from a break down twice in the third set and then at 4-4 to be 15-40 down on serve and hold is absolutely remarkable!
At times this sports leaves you speechless, Andy Murray a title winner on the tour nine months after his career could have possibly ended.
