Andy Murray edged Tommy Robredo of Spain to win a second final in a row when he came from behind to win the Valencia Open 3-6, 7-6 (7), 7-6 (8) on Sunday at the Cathedral Arena. The Scot did not only win the match but he also secured valuable points for his World Tour finals bid. The difficult battle which saw both players fighting exhaustion was a replica of the Shenzhen Open which Murray also won when he fought off five match points against Robredo.
The third seed produced an impressive display against the unseeded Spaniard and it was enough to help him claim his 31st career title in singles. After hitting a backhand winner to bag the victory, the Briton collapsed to the floor and barely had enough strength to greet his opponent at the net. The victory moved Murray to fifth place in the race for a spot at the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals in London.
He will be looking to secure one of the four remaining berths at the Paris Masters where he is still facing competition from the likes of Kei Nishikori, David Ferrer, Thomas Berdych, Milos Raonic and Grigor Dimitrov.
