Andy Murray expressed his surprise at reaching the European Open final in Antwerp on Saturday saying ‘I certainly didn’t expect it to come so soon.’
The three-time Grand Slam champion will play Stan Wawrinka in Sunday’s final after beating Ugo Humbert 3-6, 7-5, 6-2 to reach his first ATP final for two years.
Murray had career-saving hip surgery in January and thought his time at the top might be over.
Murray said: “Yeah, I mean, Stan’s (Wawrinka) a brilliant player. You know, we’ve played against each other and some some big matches in the past and big tournaments. He’s had his injury troubles as well in the last couple of years and done great to get back to the top of the game.
“It was actually my match with him at the French Open in 2017 where my hip problems really, really started. It was a tough five set match in the semis and I never recovered from that. So it’s cool to be back playing against him in a final and hopefully it’s a good one.”
