Murray picks up where he left off

Andy Murray picked up his sixth title of the year and the 14th of his career with a comprehensive victory over Mikhail Youzhny at the inaugural Valencia Open.

The world number four, playing in his first tournament for nearly two months after recovering from a wrist injury, looked impressive throughout in a 6-3 6-2 win over the Russian.

“It is very rare for someone to win a tournament after a long break. I am happy I have come back from the injury well and played better with every match,” said Murray.

“I didn't have high expectations this week but with every round and match you get more confident. I felt good with the way I was hitting the ball.”
