When the game started on Friday at 4:30 p.m. local time, there were concerns about Murray's performance after he stumbled awkwardly when extending for a shot in the penultimate point of the previous night's play.

When he returned to play Tsitsipas on Friday, there were no indications of the injury concern, but Tsitsipas had been able to regain the same consistency and accuracy that we saw in the opening set on Thursday night.
