Andy Murray ended his 14-month title drought, and saved five championship points against Spain’s Tommy Robredo in the second set of the Shenzhen Open final. Robredo was leading in the breaker by 6-2, but Murray stormed back and took the set. Then, in the wilting heat and humidity, the Scot raced through the third set to eventually win the match and the 250 trophy, 5-7, 7-6(9), 6-1.
It was Murray’s first title since winning Wimbledon in 2013. In the interim, he has had back surgery, and undergone a coaching change. Robredo was looking for his first title since Umag in July of 2013.
