- Murray did not know if play would go ahead at Nottingham Open
- Scot follows up Surbiton success with victory over Joris De Loore
Andy Murray said he did not know whether play would go ahead at the Nottingham Open after the “heartbreaking” incident in the city centre overnight.
Three people were killed and another three were in hospital after an attack in the early hours of the morning, with much of the local area cordoned off. Play did go ahead as planned and Murray, fresh from his title success at Surbiton last week, got his campaign in the Challenger event off to a winning start with a routine 6-3, 6-4 victory over Belgian minnow Joris De Loore. But Murray, who ate out in Nottingham city centre not far from where the attacks happened, said the incident was “way more important than tennis”.
