Zverev beats Murray for the first time in Indian Wells
07:11 am Alexander Zverev defeated Andy Murray for the first time in Indian Wells. The German, the number 4 in the world, defeated the three-time grand slam champion in two sets: 6-4 7-6 (4). Zverev has now beaten the so-called ‘Big Four’ in men’s tennis once.
The 24-year-old German has already won against Roger Federer (four times), Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal (three times). However, that had never happened against Murray, who was part of the ‘Big Four’ until he had to deal with injuries. Zverev lost to the Scot in 2016 (at the Australian Open) and last year (in Cincinnati).
In the third round of the masters tournament in Indian Wells, the Tokyo Olympic champion managed to beat 34-year-old Murray, who took gold at the 2012 and 2016 Games, for the first time. “It was a high-level match, I’m glad I got through,” said Zverev, who will now compete against Frenchman Gaël Monfils.
