Murray downs injured Nadal in Rotterdam final

Latest update : 2009-02-15

Britain's Andy Murray claimed Rotterdam Open title after beating world number one Rafael Nadal 6-3, 4-6, 6-0. The Spaniard seemed to be troubled by his right knee injury and had had a medical time-out three games into the second set.

AFP - Andy Murray survived a contest riddled with seven breaks of serve in the second set to win the Rotterdam Open 6-3, 4-6, 6-0 over Rafael Nadal here on Sunday.
  
The erratic victory marked the second successive one for Murray over the Spanish world number 1 following a US Open semi-final win last September.
  
Murray showed no sign of his existing ankle problem as he lifted his tenth career title and improved his record against Nadal to 2-5.
  
Nadal was treated on his right thigh after the third game of the second set, sure signs of a week which has taken a toll on the Australian Open winner.
  
Murray became the first Briton to win Rotterdam after three runner-up finishes by Tim Henman. He improves to 13-1 on the season with titles in Doha and here.
