Andy Murray defeated Ugo Humbert in three sets to reach the Antwerp Open final. The British player said: "It's been a big surprise to me. I'm happy to be into the final. It's been a long road to get back to this point.
I certainly didn't expect it to come so soon since I started playing again." Analyzing the difficulties he faced during the match on Saturday, the three-time Grand Slam winner added: “It was obviously big for me to get that [6-5] game in the second set, but the game that won me the match was the first game of the third set," said Murray.
"When I was 0/40 down, I think I played a couple of good points. It was a huge game to get out of. I felt like the momentum was with me… Once I won that game, I felt like that was what set me on my way”. On the final, Murray added: "I think it will be a nice match to play.
Me and Stan have played a lot against each other. It is nice that we are both able to be back playing against each other in a final." Murray will face the Swiss Stan Wawrinka next. The Lausanne native said: "I am super happy. I didn't play since the US Open, so to be in a final here after a month away is great for me."
