Murray rallies to beat Harrison in Melbourne
Melbourne: Britain`s Andy Murray got a first-set wake up call from Ryan Harrison but rallied to reach the second round of the Australian Open with an ultimately comfortable 4-6 6-3 6-4 6-2 victory Tuesday.
American Harrison was exactly the sort of opponent the fourth seed would have wanted to avoid early in the tournament and the big-hitting teen-ager gave Murray a tough test in front of his new coach Ivan Lendl.
It was brilliant shot-making rather than his big serve that won Harrison the first set but Murray, losing finalist here for the last two years, contributed when his own serve went awry.
The 24-year-old tightened up his game, found his range and stormed back to take control of the match, which he clinched on his second match point when Harrison netted a forehand after more than three hours on Hisense Arena.
