Incredibly Joyous Scenes As Andy Murray Audibly Sobs After Massive Win

Andy Murray has endured an incredibly frustrating twelve months. Hampered by a career-threatening hip injury, the British tennis player managed to recover in time for the Citi Open in Washington and played out a three-hour epic against Marius Copil. Afterward, he broke down in tears.

After a 6-7 6-3 7-6 win, which included a final set tie-break and did not finish until after 3am local time, the emotional rollercoaster caught up with Murray.

It was a draining evening for the former British number one who at one point dropped seven points in a row to find himself a set down. However, he recovered to break Copil in the second set.

The result sets up a quarter-final pairing against Alex de Minaur on Friday, although Murray criticised the "unreasonable" turnaround time after the marathon tie.
