Australian Open 2022: Andy Murray SHOCKS Basilashvili with a dropshot

Andy Murray qualified for the second round of the Australian Open 2022 thanks to a stunning five-set win against Nikoloz Basilashvili, 6-1 3-6 6-4 6 (4) -7 6-4. The Scot suffered an opponent in excellent form, but showed, under pressure, a good physical and mental condition.

Moreover, in a bottom half with many supporting actors and few protagonists, there could be big surprises. After a super rally, especially played on the diagonals, Murray shocked his rival with a fantastic dropshot, which broke the rally and closed the point.

Daniil Medvedev gives absolutely no discounts to Henri Laaksonen.

After the opening game lost in service, the Russian becomes a fury and literally dominates the set (6-1), not conceding anything. In the second, the Swiss played openly and only gave up the serve once, in the fifth game: the advantage was enough for the world number 2 to win the partial 6-4.

In the third there is a need for a tie-break, which does not scare and frightens the 25-year-old from Moscow, who is good at not allowing his opponent to prolong the match.
