“Unbelievable match, (he’s a) great fighter,” Murray said “Unbelievable match, (he’s a) great fighter,”  “He’s 32 now and in unbelievable shape, he’s still improving. I don’t know what else to say, but I have a lot of respect for you and I’m sorry about today.”

Meanwhile Robredo praised to Murray’s never say die attitude. Robredo added, “He is so tough, he has more lives than a cat. Players like him don’t gift you anything, to beat them you have to play a spectacular match,”

Robredo got two vital chances to close the match with the 2 match points when he was leading the match by 6-5 and 7-6, but Murray fought back and ultimately level the game. The match was again to slip when Murray cramped in the deciding set and played fault twice but soon the Champion recovered and finally defeated the Robredo. With this victory Andey Murray secured valuable points for his World Tour finals bid.
