Andy Murray shakes hands with Nick Kyrgios after the match

World No. 3 Andy Murray continued his impressive run on clay as he defeated Nick Kyrgios of Australia in straight sets 6-4 6-2 6-3 to book a place in the fourth round of the 2015 French Open. The first set turned to be quite an entertaining one as Murray broke serve as many as 7 times and had to soak up severe pressure from the Australian.

The remaining two sets proved to be much easier affairs for the Scot and speaking after the match, he said that he knew the Australian would pull out something unpredictable and said that one needs to be on their toes at all time while playing him.

"I watch him quite a lot, so you go on the court expecting the unexpected. You just have to be on your toes at all times and try to be ready for something different,” Murray said.

“But I just try to stay solid throughout and make it difficult for them.I feel like I have done a good job of weathering the storms that he always has during matches - periods in the matches where he's on fire and hits some unbelievable shots,” he added.

The 20-year-old Kyrgios was evidently disappointed over his loss and felt that Murray wasn't serving at his best, but admitted he himself wasnt at his best either.

“It's heartbreaking. Today I wasn't near 100%. Not to take anything from Andy, he played unbelievable. I don't think he served well, but he made a lot of returns and he just does what he does best - that's make a lot of balls and mix up the game. He was too good,” he said.
