Andy Murray came through a shaky opening set to beat Evgeny Donskoy in three at the BNP Paribas Open.
Andy Murray dropped the first set to Evgeny Donskoy, but came through to triumph in three sets 5-7, 6-2 6-2.
Murray had a dreadful start to the match, going down a double break to trail 1-5, but fought back to level 5-5. Just when fans at the BNP Paribas Open were expecting him to stamp down his superiority, the 25 year-old again lost his serve – and the set to his Russian opponent.
It was no shock to see Murray in difficulty early on though, as he hasn’t won a match at Indian Wells in the last three years.
After the match though, the number three seed admitted he had nerves prior to facing Donskoy due to his poor record in California.
