The three-time major champion started his tournament off with an impressive fightback against Italian Lorenzo Sonego in the first round, saving three match points in the process. But he saved his most remarkable comeback for the semi-final against rising star Jiri Lehecka.

After taking the opening set 6-0, Murray’s form soon dipped as Lehecka took control of the match in the second set. He then went a break down in the third and looked on his way out of the tournament.

But a determined Murray fought back to save a total of five match points before winning the tiebreak to set up a final against Medvedev. The No 3 seed proved too tough a test for Murray to clinch his first ATP title in nearly four years.
