Andy Murray had a shaky start in this one but he was able to rally back and beat James Duckworth in four sets 4-6 6-3 6-2 6-4.
Murray was able to recover in time to play at Wimbledon from his abdominal strain and he made a winning start. It was a slow start for Murray who dropped the opening set 4-6. It was rather explainable as Murray struggled to his serve consistently. Only 46 % of the time and there were plenty of chances for Duckworth which he took.
For Murray, it's rather simple. If he serves well he's dangerous, if not, not so much. His play improved a lot in the 2nd set and was fruitful. He attacked Duckworth on his 2nd serve with great success as he cruised to a 6-3 finish. He actually did not drop a single point behind his first serve in that one and that's the key for Wimbledon.
He continued playing well in the 3rd set once again doing a lot of damage on the 2nd set. Duckworth was the player that struggled with the serve this time around and Murray cruised 6-2. The final set featured a proper battle between the players but Murray stayed patient and he got a double fault from Duckworth on break point at 4-4. He closed it out 6-4 in the next game. Four sets but a rather quick match for Murray.
