Live ticker Andy Murray – Taro Daniel 0: 3 (Australian Open 2022, 2nd round)


Share post:



Andy Murray eliminated in the second round of the Australian Open! The Scot was beaten 4:6, 4:6 and 4:6 against Taro Daniel from Japan. Murray is largely responsible for the end himself, as he made almost 50 mistakes without needing to. Daniel, on the other hand, played more patiently and could rely on his good footwork. Accordingly, the Japanese deserves a place in a third round of a Grand Slam for the first time.

That’s it! Daniel goes to the net for his first match point for the serve and volley and sinks the ball with ease!

A.Murray-T.Daniel 4:6 4:6 4:5

There’s the break! Again Murray has to go over the second serve and can’t develop any pressure in the rally. To make matters worse, the 34-year-old makes an unnecessary backhand mistake that may finally cost him the match here.

Now the preliminary decision could be made! Andy Murray’s stop is too short and Daniel is there in time. The Japanese gets two breakballs here!

A Murray – T Daniel 4:6 4:6 4:3

Murray clenches his fist in determination. After the debut, the Scot can bring his serve through and make it 4:3. So the pressure is on the other side of the net again.

It’s going into crunch time and in lockstep! Daniel holds his serve, even if he has to go over Deuce first.

Daniel makes it 2:2! At the right moment, the Japanese serves better again and can hold his serve.

However, he cannot use it for the time being. Daniel serves well and saves the breakball. It’s about debut again and again.


A Murray – T Daniel 4:6 4:6 2:1

The two fired 24 shots in the longest rally around the ears. In this case, Andy Murray has the better end on his side, who has another break ball.

Of course Andy Murray will not stick his head in the sand here. The Scot starts the sentence well again and completes his service.

Now this second sentence could decide! Daniel hits another really good return right at Murray’s feet, who hits the ball wide and faces another break ball.

Although Murray is already 0:30 behind, the Scot still finds his rhythm on his own serve and turns the game in his favor. But now he urgently needs the break.


A. Murray-T. Daniel 3:5

Very important service game for Taro Daniel, who again profits from an opponent’s mistake! The Japanese can thus make it 5: 3 and have it in their own hands to bring in this first set.


A. Murray-T. Daniel 3:4

The Japanese serves well against the break and can fend off both of the Scot’s options here. It’s about debut!


A. Murray-T. Daniel 3:4

It seems to keep going back and forth here. Murray now has great length back into the game, forcing Daniel to make mistakes. Because he also doesn’t serve well, there are now breakballs for Murray.

Murray blunders again! The Scot does not serve well and then makes the unnecessary mistake. This is how the former Grand Slam winner conceded the next break here.

Murray gets the break! The Scot plays a dangerous slice, which Daniel wants to counter with the longline. However, the ball gets stuck on the edge of the net.


A. Murray-T. Daniel 2:3

With a good stop, Daniel brings Murray to the net and because he can’t sink the volley there, Daniel has the chance to pass the Scot.


A. Murray-T. Daniel 2:3

Very good return now from Andy Murray, who puts the ball in front of his opponent and after his mistake he has his first break point!


A. Murray-T. Daniel 2:3

This time the Scot has a lot less trouble getting through his serve. Murray is able to secure the fifth game of the match with a clean sheet and so he reduces to 2:3.


A Murray-T Daniel 1:3

In addition, Daniel serves really well and can confirm his break without any problems. All in all, this is a more than decent start for the Japanese.


A. Murray-T. Daniel 1:2

After almost ten minutes, Taro Daniel has the break! The Japanese is very clever at the moment, keeping the ball in play, showing strong footwork and patiently waiting for his chance or Murray’s mistake.

The two deliver a hotly contested game. Murray was able to fend off the breakball with a service winner, but he is still unable to close the game afterwards.

A Murray – T Daniel 1-0

In the first longer rally, Daniel is courageous and goes to the net. But Murray is on his guard and passes his opponent with a backhand cross.


A Murray 0-0 T Daniel

Here we go! Murray starts the game with his own service and secures the first point of the game with a service winner.


Qualifier has big plans!

Opposite him is Taro Daniel, a qualifier who is only seven places down in the world rankings. Daniel is in the second round of a Grand Slam for the fifth time, but couldn’t do much in his first four second-round games. That should change today!


Big fighter heart

In round one Andy Murray, who has been struggling for consistency and form since his comeback, once again showed great fighting spirit. He defeated Basiashvili in five sets and is in the second round of the Australian Open for the first time in four years.


Warm welcome!

Good morning and hello to the Australian Open 2022! The last games of the second round are on the program in Melbourne on Thursday. Among others, Andy Murray and Taro Daniel meet, who will duel around 7:30 a.m.
