Andy Murray produced one of the greatest comebacks of his career on Thursday evening.
The Scotsman never knows when to give up.
This is a trait which has been present throughout his entire career and one of the reasons that he was been so successful. The 35-year-old took part in the second round of the Australian Open today, facing off against Thanasi Kokkinakis.
Murray came back from the brink to seal this epic victory in a game which lasted an incredible five hours and 45 minutes, finishing at 4.05 am Melbourne time.
The British player demonstrated his grit and determination by winning a rally in which he had no right to do so.
One of the all-time GREAT comebacks!

“It was unbelievable I managed to turn that around,” said Murray after the game.
“Thanasi was serving unbelievably and hitting his forehand huge. I don’t know how I managed to get through it. I did start playing better as the match went on, but yeah, I have a big heart.”
