The 35-year-old Scotland player is one of the last of his generation to compete at such a high level.
Superstar Andy Murray has continues his incredible start this year by booking his spot in his first semi-final since 2021 to down Alexandre Muller 4-6 6-1 6-2 at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open.
Dedicating two hours and four minutes on the court, Murray dominated over the No 170 French tennis player.
A two-time former champion in Qatar, Murray secured the lead at the very beginning of the match, leaving gaps in between to unwind.
Facing off against the 26-year-old, Murray levelled up the match to force a decider.
Muller was dialled in the match, but the opening lead and the strong finish from the 70-rank player were too much to handle.
At 35, Murray returned to the tournament less than 24 hours after absorbing a three-hour match against Germany’s Alexander Zverev.
“I would like to win the matches quicker, but Alex is a top player and a great competitor, who always fights until the end,” said Murray after upsetting the fourth-seed player.
Murray will now contend against Jiri Lehecka of Czech, who upset World No. 5 Andrey Rublev 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 to reach his second tour-level semi-final.
The 21-year-old has held a powerful heavy-hitting rendition against the top seed and will meet his maker on Friday.
