Andy Murray v Joao Sousa Live
World no. 3 Andy Murray will go up against the unseeded Portuguese Joao Sousa, in the second round of 2015 Roland Garros on Thursday afternoon.
Sousa, who is now 15/14 with is first round win against Vasek Pospisil, hasn’t had that eventful season so far. In majority of the tournaments he has played in, the world no. 44 hasn’t been successful in moving past the second round. It wasn’t until he was played in ATP Geneva last week, that he was finally able to break the jinx by being the runner-up, losing to Thomaz Bellucci in the final.
As for Murray, after settling for the second place on two occasions at Miami Masters and Australian Open (losing to Novak Djokovic in both the cases), he finally managed to win a trophy and kick off his clay season in style. After winning the ATP Munich, he then proceeded to win the Madrid Masters by defeated Rafael Nadal in the final.
Murray is going in this match as an overwhelmingly favorite one to win, having already defeated Sousa twice this year, in Australian Open and ATP Dubai. He currently leads the overall tally with 5-0, and considering his form, the Brit shouldn’t have any problem in adding another win to this record.
