"I needed to start putting a little bit more pace on my shots", said Murray in an on-court interview following his victory. In the victory, Murray won 74 percent of his first serve points and 43 percent of his second serve points.

The Japanese twice came from behind in a third set that ebbed and flowed, only to surrender meekly during the subsequent breaker.

Cilic advanced as Kevin Anderson retired hurt with a leg injury, when trailing the Croat 6-3, 3-0. The match with Khachanov was full of brilliant moments, both athletes showed a real man tennis.
