Battle of the brits andy murray

All eyes were on the Schroders Battle of the Brits as elite tennis got back underway in Britain.

Andy Murray said, after his opening win on the first day: “We're trying as best as we can here to do everything properly and everyone is respecting the rules.

“All of the players now will be extremely aware that we can all be affected by this. Coronavirus doesn't care who we are or what we do and we need to respect it and respect the rules.”

Next up for Murray will be Kyle Edmund, and he expects that to be another step up in level, with the former World No. 1 keeping his expectations low.

“I’m not obviously where I would want to be but it’s just good to get matches and see how my hip responds to playing three days in a row.”

There were wins too for Kyle Edmund and British No. 1 Dan Evans but a shock loss for tournament organiser Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski as the tournament favourites tumbled to the scratch pairing of Liam Broady & Cameron Norrie.
