Murray ekes out win in Washington — ATP roundup

Murray made a slugging start in DC, where he was serving at just 48 per cent and was broken three times as McDonald took control and the opening set.

"I wasn't dictating numerous points". Edmund got the win in their last meeting in Eastbourne, where the new British No.1 Edmund won with the loss of just eight games in that second round clash.

"It was great to get through that one", he said, "but in terms of the actual way that I went about the match and played the match, I wasn't that happy with it".

Murray was discussing Serena Williams' recent comments, after the 23-time Grand Slam champion said she was being "discriminated" by being tested more often than other players. "I've never met him before, so it's very cool".

It was Murray's first experience with a serve clock, which will be used at the US Open this year.

Murray underwent hip surgery in January after the hip ailment slowed him in 2017.

"If I am out here losing first round every single week, I am not going to enjoy that as much", he said.

His lone win on grasscourts came over Swiss Stan Wawrinka, another three-time Grand Slam victor fighting back from a left knee injury.

He also opened up about his possible destination, with a move back to Italy being one of the possibility. That's why I spoke with the manager and also with the club about my future".

Murray's first hardcourt match in almost 17 months turned when he broke in the penultimate game of the second set and again on his fifth break chance in the opening game of the third set.

But Murray drew things level, taking a crucial game nine in the second for a 5-4 lead and serving out the set.

"I don't know all the details or numbers and the actual facts of how much everyone individually gets tested", Murray said.

That probably mattered more than the result to Murray, a 31-year-old from Britain who pulled out of Wimbledon on July 1 because, he said at the time, it "might be a bit too soon in the recovery process" for his hip to try to compete in best-of-five-set matches.
