Murray Looking To Rebound at Rotterdam

Andy Murray was hoping to come away with his first ever Australian Open title. Instead, he lost to Novak Djokovic – again – in the final Down Under and will now try to get back to his winning ways at Rotterdam. Close, but no cigar. That’s been the story of Murray’s career at the Australian Open. On February 1, he lost to Djokovic in the Aussie Open final for the third time but overall, that was his fourth loss in the final. For his career, he’s now 8-16 versus Djokovic. Murray will try to regroup at Rotterdam at the 2015 ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament next week, an event he’s conquered once previously. Back in 2009, he topped Rafael Nadal in the final to earn his 11th career title. However, he lost in the quarter-final last year to Marin Cilic. Cilic is back, as is defending champ Tomas Berdych in what should be a fairly challenging field. Stan Wawrinka, Milos Raonic, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Ernests Gulbis have also confirmed for the hard court tournament in Netherlands and the action gets underway on February 9.
