translated from Spanish: Andy Murray advances to third round of a Grand Slam after four years

Scottish tennis player Andy Murray advanced to the third round of Wimbledon on Wednesday, as in his best times at the All England, beating Germany’s Oscar Otte (151st) 6-3, 4-6, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 in nearly four hours of play. The 34-year-old, champion of this contest in 2013 and 2016, is looking to find his best version after several hip problems, in whose conformation he has a titanium prosthesis. Little by little, the 118th in the world, he seems to find rhythm in a momentous place for his career. The Briton returned to play the grass-court Grand Slam for the first time since his last appearance in 2017.” It’s been an extremely tough few seasons. Even in the last few months, without series injuries, it’s still been very frustrating not to be able to spend so much time on the court and have had so few good moments in recent years. But I kept working and doing everything I needed to get back in this position. And I feel lucky to have made it,” the former world number one said a few days ago about his feelings on the court. A 2021 with little action for Murray, a groin discomfort prevented him from playing regularly, and before London he had only played just four tournaments, one of them on the Challenger circuit and three at the ATP level. For a place in the knockout stages, he will face Canada’s Denis Shapovalov, 12th in the ATP rankings and tenth seed in the draw, who is coming off of advancing to the third round by walking around Spaniard Pablo Andújar.
