Andy Murray reacts to winning Mutua Madrid Open Virtual Pro

Great Britain's Andy Murray kept it humble after winning the Mutua Madrid Open Virtual Pro as he praised his final opponent David Goffin. Murray, a three-time Grand Slam champion, edged out 2017 Nitto ATP Finals runner-up Goffin 7-6 in the tie-break to win the online tournament.

"I think he's genuinely a little bit better at the game than me. He was able to use the drop-shot and the inside-out forehand and stuff like that. He had a few more options but my serve was probably the biggest difference," Murray said.

"When you're nervous in an actual tennis match you feel a little more in control. When you're playing with technology you don't feel as much in control.

Maybe that adds a little bit to the nerves.

"It was good.

I enjoyed it, there's not much we can do just now, we spend most of the days indoors and can't get out much so it was a fun thing to do."

Murray admits he would have liked to have won properly his semifinal match against Argentine Diego Schwartzman.

"The semi-final match I'd have liked to have been played properly. There will be people saying 'you shouldn't have been in the final'

It's a difficult thing to organise with all the timezones and internet connections... It was nice to chat to some of the players, too."
