ANDY MURRAY admitted he had struggled with the pace of the court early on after he continued his comeback from hip surgery with a first-round victory over Juan Ignacio Londero at the Shanghai Masters.
Murray recovered from a poor first set to beat the Argentinian qualifier 2-6, 6-2, 6-3.
The Scot will play Italy’s Fabio Fognini in round two and said: ‘The court is by far the fastest conditions I have played in since I came back.
‘I really struggled with that early on. I was mistiming the ball. I felt quite slow on court.’
