"Happy to finally beat him" says Alexander Zverev after win over Andy Murray

Alexander Zverev secured his first win ever over Andy Murray at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells and the German was happy to do it and move on.

It was a very good match between Andy Murray and Alexander Zverev with the German able to overcome early deficits in both sets to come back and win in two. Zverev was a bit lucky to escape in two sets especially since he did not play his best but in the end, Murray did not either and that proved key. After the match Zverev admitted he was happy to finally defeat Murray:

"He’s the only one of the Big Four that I hadn’t beaten yet, so I’m happy that I’ve done it today. Obviously, it was a fantastic match. I thought Andy played extremely well, maybe as well as he’s played since the surgery. I hope he continues playing the same way because tennis did miss him for a long time and I think it’s good to have him back.”

Zverev snuck in some lofty praise there as well saying how good it was to have Murray back and most tennis fans agree especially those in Indian Wells who were firmly behind Murray in the match. Zverev admitted he never lost belief even when down:

“I always stayed in the match, even though I was down a break in both sets. I always knew I had a chance. Especially the second set I think was an extremely high level from both of us. It could have gone both ways.”
