Madrid Open: Andy Murray beats Dominic Thiem to reach round two

BBC Sport says Andy Murray beat 2020 US Open champion Dominic Thiem comfortably to reach the second round of the Madrid Open.

In his first match on clay since August 2020, the impressive Briton won the high-profile first round match 6-3 6-4.

Former world number three Thiem is continuing his own comeback after eight months out with a wrist injury but Murray proved the far stronger player.

They embraced at the end as Murray told Thiem: “Keep going. It takes a lot of time but you’ll be fine.”

He added: “I hope you feel better soon mate. Great to see you back.”
