Murray Falls to Giron in Stuttgart Opener Ahead of Wimbledon Preparations

Posted : 11 June 2024

Andy Murray's grass-court season opener at the Stuttgart Open ended in a defeat by American Marcos Giron, marking Murray's 999th singles match with a 6-3 6-4 loss in the first round. The three-time Grand Slam champion is gearing up for what is likely to be his final Wimbledon, expressing his intention not to extend his career beyond the summer.


Despite twice saving break points in his first service game, Murray couldn't capitalize on early opportunities against Giron, who took advantage to secure a 4-2 lead and eventually claim the opening set. In the second set, Murray showed some fight, holding to love in the first game and having chances to break his opponent's serve, but Giron remained resilient, securing a break of his own that proved decisive.


Giron, ranked 54th in the world, will face another British player, sixth seed Jack Draper, in the second round, while Murray aims to continue his preparations for Wimbledon by competing at the Cinch Championships at Queen's next week. Additionally, Murray will team up with his brother Jamie in the men's doubles at Wimbledon, marking their first Grand Slam appearance together after Jamie emphasized the importance of seizing the opportunity to play as a pair.


With Wimbledon starting on July 1st, Murray is determined to make the most of his remaining time on the court, focusing on his preparations and aiming to deliver strong performances in what could be his farewell tournament.
