Andy Murray Scores Back-To-Back Grass-Court Title at Nottingham Open

The grass-court season is in full swing right now, and Andy Murray’s Wimbledon build-up is turning out to be pretty amazing. He came out victorious at the Nottingham Open, scoring his second back-to-back grass-court title shortly after lifting the Surbiton Trophy. Murray cruised to an easy victory against France's Arthur Cazaux, beating him 6-4 6-4. This victory comes only a week after he entered the 2023 Surbiton Trophy Challenger 125 as a wildcard, and managed to defeat Jurij Rodionov in the final to take the trophy home. This game was quite emotional for the British tennis icon because his wife and four children decided to surprise him on Father’s Day and came to cheer him on. “I had no idea they were coming. They came last week for the final at Surbiton and they turned up and it started raining. So then they had to go home for the kids’ bedtime so they missed the end of the match. It’s great that they managed to come today,” said Murray post-match. Murray’s track record is pretty impressive, but his latest wins come from Challenger events. He’ll have to face tougher competition at the Queen's Club Championships, where the list of competitors includes Carlos Alcaraz, Holger Rune, and Cameron Norrie.
