Andy Murray showed impressive resolve and some glimpses of his best tennis as he beat No1 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets at the Stuttgart Open. Murray had to fight hard during a first set in which the Greek served immaculately, but the Scot forced a tie-break and then earned the only mini-break of another impressive serving trade-off.

The loss of the first set seemed to knock Tsitsipas off his stride and his first serve percentage fell away in the second, as Murray earned the first break of the match with some sublime touch around the net to lead 5-2. Tsitsipas saved two match points on his own serve but couldn’t repeat the trick in the next game as Murray closed it out with a powerful forehand down the line.

The Scot is enjoying some important grass-court preparation ahead of Wimbledon, earning his first win over a top-five ranked player since 2016, and now faces a semi-final against either Marton Fucsovics or Nick Kyrgios.

Game, set, match! Andy Murray 7-6 (4), 6-3 Stefanos Tsitsipas

Tsitsipas hits a routine mid-court forehand too wide before Murray slams a forehand long, 15-15. Murray’s serve then comes to the fore as he bullies two more match points. He only needs one, winning with a sublime forehand down the line.

Andy Murray* 7-6 (4), 5-3 Stefanos Tsitsipas

Murray has two match points at 15-40, with Tsitsipas seemingly cooked. The Greek’s first serve has fallen away significantly in this second set, but he musters something to take the game to deuce before an ace and another powerful serve clinch the game. Much better from the Greek, and Murray will have to serve it out.

Andy Murray 7-6 (4), 5-2 *Stefanos Tsitsipas

Down 15-30, Murray delivers a big serve down the T to bring parity. He wins the next rally when Tsitsipas hits long, and another long return evokes a shout of “Let’s go!” from Murray, who is one game away from the semi-finals.

Andy Murray* 7-6 (4), 4-2 Stefanos Tsitsipas

Murray gets himself ahead in the game with a disguised backhand pass with Tsitsipas at the net, then at 15-15 produces a touch of class with a deft forehand drop shot to leave the Greek floundering. A backhand into the net lets Tsitsipas back in at 30-all, but he then double faults to gift Murray a break point. Murray battles brilliantly to win what might just be the longest point of the match so far, finishing with a brilliant backhand winner as Tsitsipas approaches the net, and that’s the crucial first break.

Andy Murray 7-6 (4), 3-2 *Stefanos Tsitsipas

Excellent serving from Murray who dishes up an ace of his own and a couple of unreturnable serves to get to 40-0. When he finally pops up a simple second serve for his opponent, Tsitsipas dumps a backhand into the net. Very few chances for either player here, and although it’s still early days in the second set it would not be surprising if we go to another tie-break.

Tennis news: Sue Barker to end Wimbledon run

Sue Barker will retire as presenter of the BBC’s Wimbledon coverage at the end of this year’s tournament after 30 years, the broadcaster has announced.

The former French Open winner, 66, said: “What a wonderful time I’ve had working on some of the biggest sporting events around the world.

“I will miss it terribly but after 30 years I feel the time is right for me. I’ve worked with the best of the best.”

Barker was the last British woman to win the French Open in 1976.

BBC director-general Tim Davie said: “Sue Barker has been the face and voice of Wimbledon for three decades.

“Many of our viewers will not know of a summer in SW19 without her. She is a consummate professional, an outstanding presenter and a wonderful colleague, loved by current and former players, all of us at the BBC and audiences across the UK and beyond.

“Her contribution to tennis, the BBC, sports presenting and for blazing a trail for women in broadcasting cannot be overstated. We are looking forward to her leading our coverage, with all the style, warmth and knowledge she has displayed for the last 30 years, and we will say farewell with heavy hearts at the end of the tournament.”

Andy Murray 7-6 (4), 2-1 *Stefanos Tsitsipas

Murray’s serve keeps putting pressure on his opponent. At 40-30 Murray serves powerfully to Tsitsipas’s backhand and the return floats long. That’s game.

Andy Murray* 7-6 (4), 1-1 Stefanos Tsitsipas

Tsitsipas puts together his most shaky service game for a while with several missed first serves and his first double fault, but he holds out nonetheless. Losing that first set seems to have agitated him a little.
