Unbelievable ending, I’ve not played many tie-breaks like that before. I wish [I could go on for ever in tennis], unfortunately that’s not going to happen. I have put in a lot of hard work, it’s the hardest I’ve worked in a long time these last couple of months. I need to keep going because it’s not perfect yet, but the signs are good,” Murray said after the match.
