  • Andy Murray 1-0 Benjamin Becker*

    Not exactly the most concinving start from Murray. Becker has a break point but Murray snuffs it out and takes it to deuce where the home favourite does the business.

  • *Andy Murray 1-1 Benjamin Becker

    Great start from the guy who's no relation to Boris Becker. Easy hold of serve and already there's a shout of 'Go on Andy'.

  • Andy Murray 2-1 Benjamin Becker*

    A sneaky lob attempt by Murray is well read by Becker and the German smashes it down to make it 30-15. Murray than double faults to see the score go to 30-30. However, Murray sorts things out and takes the next two points.

  • *Andy Murray 3-1 Benjamin Becker

    Murray challenges a Becker serve at 15-30 but the fans can clap all they like - that was in from the German. That doesn't stop Murray earning a break point of his own and more than that - taking it. MURRAY BREAKS!
