‘I feel like we deserved to win that match,’ says Andy Murray after win with Naomi Broady
Andy Murray registered his third victory of the week at the Battle of the Brits tournament in Roehampton as he and Naomi Broady defeated Kyle Edmund and Emma Raducanu in the mixed doubles.
Murray and Broady won 6-3, 7-6 (5), triumphing via the tie-breaker after being broken at 5-4 up in the second set.
The three-time Grand Slam champion, only in doubles action this week, had also won twice alongside Lloyd Glasspool, against Dom Inglot and Alastair Gray and then Edmund and Joe Salisbury.
What a way to win and what a celebration 🔥

Murray told the BBC: “I thought we returned really well and Naomi was unbelievably solid up at the net. She cleaned up a lot of high balls.
“I feel like we deserved to win that match. We played better, we had the chance to close it out and at 6-3, 5-4 we didn’t get it, but it is a good one to get through.”
Sunday’s victory, secured by a superb backspin volley from Broady, comes after Murray spoke about the prospect of playing in the US Open, which is scheduled to start behind closed doors at Flushing Meadow on August 31.
