Murray Stuns Top Seeded Sinner
Andy Murray stunned top seed Jannik Sinner in the Round of 16 of the Stockholm Open on Wednesday to march into the second tour-level quarterfinal of the season.
In an engaging contest, neither player was broken in the first set, with Murray eventually taking the 75-minute set in the tiebreak. The three-time Grand Slam champion saved the only break point that he faced in the first set. He didn’t face a single break point in the second, however, broke the Italian twice to take the two-hour-and-16-minute contest 7-6 (7-4), 6-3.
The victory over the World No. 10 was Murray’s second over a top 10 player this year. He had earlier beaten Hubert Hurkacz in the first round in Vienna.
The two-time Olympic gold medallist had begun his Stockholm campaign with a 6-1, 7-6 (9-7) win over Norwegian qualifier Viktor Durasovic.
In September, Murray had also reached the last eight in Metz, but was stopped from reaching the semifinals by Hurkacz.
Wednesday’s victory means Murray is now 15-13 for the season and on Thursday, he will be aiming to reach a first semifinal since Antwerp 2019. He had gone on to win his 46th career title in Antwerp two years ago, but has not made a final four appearance since then.

He also began the second set by breaking Fritz’s serve and then held on to the lead to oust his doubles partner 6-4, 6-4 in an hour and 16 minutes.
Paul had beaten local player Leo Borg 6-4, 6-2 in the first round.
Thursday’s win improved Paul to 22-23 in 2021. His best runs included a semifinal finish in Parma and a last eight appearance in Rotterdam. This is the third time that he is in a quarterfinal this year and will be hoping to keep the winning momentum going.
