Andy Murray progresses in Brisbane despite scare
British number one reaches third round
Thursday 03 January 2013
Andy Murray shrugged off a second-set scare to reach the third round of the Brisbane International with a 6-1 5-7 6-3 victory over world number 199 John Millman.
Murray raced through the opening set with three breaks of the Millman serve but was broken twice in the second as the 23-year-old, playing in only his fifth tour level match, fought back to take the match into an unlikely decider.
Fears grew for Murray as he looked in some pain at times in the third set, but he managed to claim the solitary break required to wrap up victory in two hours and five minutes, and set up a quarter-final meeting with Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan.
