Champion, an absolute champion, that’s what Andy Murray is all about. The British tennis star has defeated some of the best in the business throughout his illustrious career, however, a string of injuries have bothered him a lot.
The 6 feet 3 inches tall star player had to undergo multiple hip surgeries to get back to the court. As expected, his return to the court didn’t go very well. He won a few, lost a few more before entering into 2022.

However, as soon as he made his way into the new year, the man turned the heat on. He reached the finals of the Sydney Tennis Classic before entering into the Australian Open which gave everyone a fair glimpse about what can be expected from him.
In his opening round at the Australian Open, Murray was up against Nikoloz Basilashvili. The 21st seeded tennis star gave a tough fight to Murray but despite all his efforts, the champion Brit prevailed.
Murray won the game by 6-1, 3-6, 6-4, 6-7, 6-4. Nikoloz undoubtedly stretched Murray as much as he could, but the experienced campaigner refused to back down and emerged victoriously.
Murray will next take on American tennis player Taro Daniel in his second round clash.
