Following a thrilling victory in the second round of the ongoing Wimbledon 2021, Andy Murray, a British tennis player, stated that the old dog still has life in it. “Unreal atmosphere out there tonight… thanks to everyone who was watching and supporting… you got me over the line, life in the old dog yet eh,” he tweeted. Murray, a two-time champion, rallied from a set down to win the second round.
Murray advanced to the third round by defeating Germany’s Oscar Otte 6-3, 4-6, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 on Centre Court. Murray, 34, will now face Denis Shapavalov in the third round.
The British tennis player breezed through his opponent Otte in the first set, winning it 6-3. However, Otte rallied strongly and won the next two sets 6-4, putting Murray’s back against the wall and requiring him to win two sets to advance to the third round.
Murray demonstrated his class and determination at that point, winning the fourth and fifth sets. Murray dropped four games in the fourth set, but only two in the fifth.
Novak Djokovic, the world No. 1, advanced to the third round earlier on Wednesday.
Later in the day, Roger Federer will compete in his Wimbledon 2021 second-round match.
