Andy Murray has made it plain that he has plenty more to give when it comes to top-class tennis – and he emphasised that en route to the Stockholm Open quarter-finals, dismissing top seed Jannik Sinner in straight sets, 7-6(4), 6-3.

It was his second Top 10 win of the year, following his defeat of Hubert Hurkacz in Vienna.

It was the first time these two had played each other – but quirkily the Italian had also lost his only other match against a British player this season, beaten by Jack Draper at Queen’s, 7-6(6), 7-6(2).

This time round, Murray rolled back the years, fended off the only break point he faced, and gritted his teeth to fight through a first-set tiebreak.

“It was a very tough match. He hits the ball huge from the back of the court so there were a lot of long rallies and a lot of running. But it’s probably my best win this season. I want to keep it going now,” Murray said on-court afterwards.
