In the wee hours of Friday, Andy Murray got emotional and understandably so.

After three hours and two minutes, the British star prevailed 6-7 6-3 7-6 over Marius Copil of Romania to enter the quarter-finals of the Citi Open in Washington.

This is his first last-eight appearance since making a comeback after being sidelined for about 11 months due to a hip injury that struck him during Wimbledon last year.

Murray, a three-time Grand Slam champion, is clearly yet to attain his full fitness. But his latest performance was enough to prove how badly he wants to get back to best.

The Brit won lesser points than Copil throughout the contest (114 against 117), but demonstrated mental toughness as he held his nerves at crucial junctures to emerge victorious.

And after his win, he didn’t let out a roar – something he usually does – or celebrated wildly. But, his emotions got the better of him as he wept uncontrollably while covering his face with towel.

After a while, with the clock past 3 am, Murray left the court, waving to his fans, but the eyes still watery.

He will face Alex De Minaur of Australia later on Friday.
