Jamie Murray and Michael Venus Fight Back to Reach Third Round at French Open
Briton Jamie Murray and New Zealand’s Michael Venus produced a scintillating comeback in the second set to advance to the third round of men’s doubles at the 2021 French Open. Their opponents, Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah, were leading 5-1 before Murray and Venus staged an impressive comeback by taking six consecutive games for a final scoreline of 6-1 7-5.
The duo could face Jean-Julien Rojer and Marcelo Arevalo in their next match. The latter pair still has a game against Nicolas Barrientos and Robert Galloway later on Thursday.
Murray-Venus looked like they were headed for defeat after losing two breaks of serve, but they mounted an incredible comeback with three crucial breaks themselves. Despite being double break down, they never lost hope as they won nine out of ten remaining games from that position.
