Andy Murray wins 1st ATP final since hip surgery

Andy Murray's incredible comeback continued in style as he beat three-time Grand Slam victor Stan Wawrinka in a dramatic three-set final at the European Open on Sunday.

Speaking after the win, an emotional Murray said: 'Stan was playing unbelievable - hitting winners from all over the court.

"He was being a lot more aggressive at the end of the second set and in the third, but thankfully I managed to get the break right at the end. I'm happy to be into the final", he told Amazon Prime.

He was looking to win his first ATP singles title since lifting the trophy at the Dubai Championship in March 2017, and his grit shone through as he came back from a break down in the second set to take the match to a decider.

Former world No 1 Andy Murray reached his first final in more than two and a half years on Saturday and admitted it was a "big surprise".

"I played a bad game at 5-3 in the second set and after that he gained a lot of confidence. Once I won that game, I felt like that was what set me on my way".

"I think it will be a nice match to play", added the Briton of Sunday's duel.

It seemed Murray was down and out when he faced two break points at 1-3 in the second set. "It was a tough five-set match in the semis and my hip never really recovered from that, so it's cool to be back playing against him in a final".

Wawrinka would come to rue his missed opportunity in the very next game, with Murray breaking back.

Wawrinka earlier ended Italian teenager Jannik Sinner's fine run in Belgium, the Swiss veteran defeating the 18-year-old 6-3, 6-2 to reach his 30th career final.

Murray saved two more break points at 4-4 to leave Wawrinka serving to stay in the match. The Lausanne native said: "I am super happy. My wife's been a huge support for getting me back on the court and making me fight to keep playing".
