Murray, looking to win his maiden French Open title, embarked on his seventh attempt this year with a victory over Marinko Matosevic in the first round on Tuesday. The British no 1, eased into a comfortable victory in the first two sets, 6-1, 6-4, but was denied a straight set victory courtesy of a 3-6 reversal by the 26-year-old Kazakh.

However, there was no stopping the seventh seed in the subsequent set registering a 6-3 victory to secure his place in the second round after 155 minutes.

On the other hand, Matosevic was forced to scrape through a hard-fought victory against Dustin Brown in the first round. The first set was the longest and stretched for 50 minutes as the former clinched it, 7-6 (5), in tie-breaker.

The second set was relatively easier for the Australian as he won, 6-4, in 40 minutes. However, Brown kept alive his chances of winning the game by denying Matosevic a victory in the third set.

The game once again needed a tie-breaker where the German emerged on top, 7-6 (1), in a battle lasting quarter of an hour. The fourth set too needed a tiebreaker where Matosevic won, 7-5, to secure his first ever victory in a Grand Slam competition.

The winner of this match will be pitted against the winner between Denis Istomin and Philipp Kohlschreiber in the next round.


Murray holds a 1-0 lead over Matosevic in overall meetings. The pair have never faced each other in a Grand Slam event.

What They Say

Andy Murray: "He's a good ball striker. He's had some good wins on the tour as a result of maybe being a bit up and down. He can play good tennis. He's a strong guy. Yeah, it will be tough."

Marinko Matosevic: "Yeah, maybe it was a little bit over the top but it was just huge relief. It got pretty demoralising at some stages. I had some tough draws. When I did have my chances, I just couldn't quite do it I always knew I was a better player than my Grand Slam results. I'm happy I could get the win today."
