Andy Murray (36, England, 52nd in the world rankings), who once dominated an era as a member of the ‘Big 4’, won the men’s professional tennis토토사이트 (ATP) tour in four years.
Murray beat Tommy Paul (USA, world number 17) 2-1 (2-6 6-1 6-2) in the Aix-en-Provence Challenger singles final of the ATP Challenger Tournament held in Aix-en-Provence, France on the 7th (Korean time).
Murray reached the top in 3 years and 7 months after winning the Antwerp Open in October 2019.
Although he won a challenger tournament one step below the ATP tour, he achieved a victory in four years.
Murray won his first Grand Slam title at the 2012 US Open. He also conquered Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016. Roger Federer (Switzerland), Rafael Nadal (Spain), and Novak Djokovic (Serbia), who were called the ‘big four’, climbed to the top of the world rankings.
However, chronic back and hip injuries prevented him from playing on the court for a while. After his injury, he mainly played in doubles, but challenged himself in singles and even raised the world ranking to the top 50.
The winner of this competition is expected to rise to 42nd in the newly announced world rankings.
Murray said after the game, “There have been problems with his performance over the past year and a half. But he has tried to improve further with his teammates.” “With this win, I will go further,” he added.
