Andy Murray wins Shanghai Masters ahead of London's O2 tournament
Date Posted: 18/10/10
Andy Murray has commented on his win over Roger Federer, which earned him the Shanghai Masters trophy and set him up strongly for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London next month.
The British number one had already guaranteed fans searching for hotels in London that he would be making an appearance at the venue by reaching the quarter-finals of the Shanghai Masters last week.
However, the British star was not finished there and proceeded to stun the Swiss giant in a 6-3 6-2 win, which only took one hour and 25 minutes.
Murray said: "I hit a lot of great shots on the run and you need to come up with great shots against Roger if you want to beat him."
The win not only meant that Federer was unable to equal the 18 ATP Masters titles record set by Rafael Nadal, but also meant that Murray has now recorded eight wins out of 13 over his Swiss foe.
Murray will be joined by Federer, Nadal and the rest of the top eight male players at The O2 between November 21st and 29th.
