Wimbledon hospitality news: Andy Murray earns win down under

07/01/2011

Corporate event organisers looking for Wimbledon hospitality in 2011 may be encouraged by world number four Andy Murray's exciting recent form, after the Scot put in another strong performance.

The 23-year-old outclassed American John Isner in the Hopman Cup, winning 6-4 6-2 even though his Great Britain team had already been eliminated from the competition, while the US side will go on to face Belgium.

Murray's rallying stood out as particularly impressive in what was a fine display at the Burswood Dome in Perth, with the towering Isner largely unable to use his powerful first serve to his advantage.

However, compatriot Laura Robson forced to withdraw from the mixed doubles after suffering a 6-4 6-2 defeat at the hands of Bethanie Mattek-Sands and will undergo a precautionary scan on a pulled hamstring.

Earlier this week, Murray told BBC Sport that he was aiming to improve his serving in order to boost his chances of winning a first Grand Slam title this year.
