Murray produces grass masterclass to beat Tsitsipas

STUTTGART-Former world number one Andy Murray secured his first victory over a top-five opponent in six years with a 7-6(4) 6-3 win over Greek top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas to reach the semi-finals of the Stuttgart Open on Friday. The two-times Wimbledon champion stepped up his preparation for the grasscourt major starting this month by battling through a tight opening set against world number five Tsitsipas before rolling back the years in the second set to complete the win. The Scot’s biggest win by ranking since he overcame Novak Djokovic at the 2016 ATP Finals set up a semi-final meeting with either Hungarian Marton Fucsovics or Australian Nick Kyrgios.
