‘Proud’ Murray wins first title since March 2017

Andy Murray said he was “very proud” after earning his first ATP title since March 2017 on Sunday with a 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 victory over fellow three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka in the Antwerp final. The former World No 1, who contemplated retirement earlier this year before undergoing career-saving hip surgery, fought back from a set and 3-1 down to claim his 46th career title. “It means a lot. The last few years have been extremely difficult,” Murray, who broke down in tears at the end, said. “Both me and Stan have had a lot of injury problems in the last couple of years. It’s amazing to be back. I think it was a great match. I didn’t expect to be in this position at all. I’m happy, very happy,” added Murray.
