Following the recent terror attacks in Manchester and London, Murray was asked about tennis' ability to promote more altruistic values.

Yeah, come a long way the last ten days or so.' Murray also paid tribute to British victims saying it's bad what happened and supporting the families. I'm sure everybody will share in thoughts and prayers for everyone who's been affected by this. It's obviously something that has affected large parts of Europe. "I am grateful that I can still perform in front of everyone", he added.

It was Murray at his best as he scampered around the back of the court on break point at 3-2 in the first set, retrieving the seemingly irretrievable until Khachanov, ranked 53, pushed a forehand wide.

"I just try to find myself into this zone where I don't do much unforced errors", the Ukrainian said, "and still play aggressive".
