Murray Advances As Li Na Crashes At French Open

Andy Murray avoided the fate of some other leading names with a four-set win over Kazakhstan’s Andrey Golubev at the French Open.
The Briton, 27, came through 6-1 6-4 3-6 6-3 against the world number 53 on Court Suzanne Lenglen.
It was his first win at Roland Garros since 2012, after he missed last year because of a back injury.
Murray will face world number 66 Marinko Matosevic in the second round after the Australian beat Dustin Brown.
Meanwhile, Former champion Li Na and 11th seed Grigor Dimitrov lost earlier on Tuesday, after third seed Stan Wawrinka went out on Monday evening, but Murray started well enough to make it unlikely he would go the same way.
After moving into a two-set lead in little over an hour, a scrappy third set followed as the Scot’s first serve deserted him, but he regained his form sufficiently to dominate the fourth.
“It was good enough to win the match,” Murray told BBC Sport.
