Wimbledon has started, and fans are wondering how it will move on. Andy Murray, as the fanbase quotes him, is always the one to set the tone for the tournament. The British professional tennis player kicked off the journey with a win over Peniston.
The beginning was tricky, but as the event moved forward, one could see Andy emerge as a clear winner. In Andy’s favor, the final stood at 6-3, 6-0, and 6-1. Center Court saw Ryan Peniston collapse despite getting off to a promising start. As a matter of fact, it was Murray who was nervous until the scores settled in the first set.
I was quite nervous at the beginning, said Andy, adding that he just wanted to play well. He further said that he believes he played some good stuff as the match proceeded. Calling these a good sign, Murray is now sure that he will have a good run physically throughout the tournament.
It should be considered that the British champion has two Wimbledon titles to his name already. Having another title to his name would add to his record of being the former US Open champion and the former world number one. In total, Andy has 46 career titles, with 14 of them at the Masters 1000 level. Making records shine is also the fact that Andy Murray has won two gold medals at the Olympics.
Peniston, on the other hand, is a comparatively young chap with a lot of tennis left ahead of him and favorite among the bettors at tennis betting sites. He announced his entry into the game on a series of grass courts. Currently ranked 268, Peniston is likely to match the level in the coming months.
Andy won 88 points in 18 games, while Peniston fell short at 56 points in 4 winning games. Murray indeed came strong in the second set, knowing that replicating the mistake of the first set would eventually cost him the match. He took charge of the event and clenched all the sets that day. The match accelerated as it moved forward. This is something that everyone predicted. Peniston was reduced to an opponent with no choice but to take all the hits.
Federer was in the presence, looking at Murray with a smile and realizing that he was the boss.
Simultaneously, Cameron Norrie managed to sweep victory over Tomas Machac with the final tally of 6-3, 4-6, 6-1, and 6-4. After a close call with defeat, this is another British champion who bounced back in the third set and continued that winning momentum in the concluding bunch.
