  • 2:13                                            Andy Murray was left in tears after he beat Marius Copil in a gruelling match that finished at 3am in Washington

He does not give any points away for free and prides himself on his ability to make his opponent beat themselves, which you could say is not too dissimilar to some of the qualities of Murray.

Murray told reporters at the tournament: "I don't think it's reasonable and I'm disappointed in that".

Andy Murray has chose to withdraw from next week's Rogers Cup in Toronto after a gruelling week in Washington.

Andy Murray worked overtime on the overnight shift in Washington to reach his first tournament quarterfinal since last summer.

Now ranked 832nd, Murray ended an 11-month absence from the tour in June, playing just three matches before arriving at the Citi Open.

Three-time Grand Slam victor Andy Murray collected the biggest victory of his injury comeback Wednesday at the ATP and WTA Washington Open while defending champion Alexander Zverev booked a matchup with his older brother. "It's not good for anyone, I don't think, involved in the event", Murray said. The competitive spirit he has displayed in his first three matches in Washington are indicative of just how much he loves to compete.

Because it is very important to have a trophy immediately. "I spoke yesterday with him about him being late, not his future". I think everybody wants to be better than the previous year .

And the sheer lateness of the hour wasn't good for players. He said his body "doesn't feel great" after the match, which would be hard on anybody but especially with his hip recovery. "Not good for fans, not good for TV, nobody".

After rain delayed earlier action, three-time major champion Murray and Copil didn't even start playing until midnight as Thursday turned to Friday.

Copil hit 20 aces during a contest which lasted more than three hours, but it was Murray who prevailed 7-4 in a final-set tie-break played in front of a sparse crowd.

The 19-year-old defeated South Korean eighth seed Hyeon Chung 6-2 4-6 6-2 in a match lasting close to two hours.

After taking a 5-0 lead in the opening-set tiebreaker, Murray dropped seven consecutive points to hand the lead over to Copil.
