However, the two still gave a show and the first five games lasted over 40 minutes: a lot of show and the crowd applauded the deeds of the two in raptures several times.

A strong start also in the second set, Dimitrov protected the advantage by risking only once, when Murray's passer ended just wide. The Scotsman appeared rather disheartened in the third and Dimitrov took the opportunity to give him a tough 6-1.
