No. 1 Andy Murray knocked out of Australian Open in fourth round

MELBOURNE — World No. 1 Andy Murray was toppled by 50th-ranked Mischa Zverev of Germany 7-5, 5-7, 6-2, 6-4 in the Australian Open round of 16 on Sunday.

The left-handed Zverev was aggressive and fearless in the match, putting incredible pressure on Murray’s normally iron-clad defense throughout the 3 hour, 34 minute upset.

Zverev found his fortune by repeatedly moving forward in the court. Zverev won 65 of 118 points at the net, while Murray won 29 of 44 net attempts.

“Honestly I don’t know,” said Zverev, when asked how he pulled off the match. “I was in a little coma, serve and volleying my way through it. Everything just feels a little bit unreal.”
