Murray aces opening test in Paris win

After dropping the opening set against 53rd-ranked Anett Kontaveit 7-6 (4), Muguruza was down a break in the second before coming back to take it 6-4 on Court Philippe Chatrier. Murray, who eventually recruited Amelie Mauresmo, was working at the time with Dani Vallverdu, who had been assisting Lendl. I chatted to Darren Cahill [one of Agassi's former coaches] about it.

"And in Bercy [Paris Masters] was when I reached world No 1, so a lot of good memories from Paris, and I'll try to have another good run this year".

However, the Russian can also be extremely temperamental and, in a best of five set match, it was the consistency of Murray which prevailed. The last couple of weeks have definitely been a struggle and a long way from where I'd like to be.

Agassi also practised with Murray at that time.

"It wasn't particularly easy after Geneva... but I feel good", Wawrinka said courtside. Except that Murray - the old Andy Murray - somehow got there.

Andy Murray joined other current players in rejecting tennis great Margaret Court's recent public stance against same-sex marriage.

The Swiss started and finished well against Kovalik, but had to come back from 6-3 down in the second-set tiebreak in order to retain the momentum.

As well as being able to work on the practice court with his team on the days between matches, Murray welcomes the scope that playing over the best of five sets offers. It creates a bit of a buzz around tennis.

'Because if you get down a set quick, there's not lots of wiggle room there. "If that comes up, I'm sure there's many people who would be for that", Keys said after her win Tuesday.

Next up for Murray is Martin Klizan and he could then meet Juan Martin del Potro in a potential blockbuster third round.

6-3 4-6 0-6 6-4 to Klizan, waved away the Slovak at the end of their first-round encounter and afterwards accused him of unsporting conduct. He plays a lot of drop shots and quite unorthodox sort of shot selection, so it can be hard to prepare for that. Olivo converted the next one with a forehand crosscourt victor and to win 6-4.

He will go up against Slovakia's Martin Klizan, the world number 50, in round two. "He is quite unpredictable on the court", said Murray, who beat Klizan in three sets in their only previous meeting in Vienna last season. There wouldn't be too much that would surprise me or shock me when I'm out there now. He's an unorthodox player. The match took 28 games to decide.

On clay, he lost in the third round in Monte Carlo, made the semis in Barcelona, was a third-round loser in Madrid before an opening defeat in Rome to Fabio Fognini.

The Wimbledon champion failed to serve out the set, but a double fault from the outsider gave Murray three set points and he let out a bellow after his opponent netted a backhand.

"I kind of agree with maybe having the [Australian Open stadium's] name changed and all of that".
