Andy Murray has won the final of the 2015 BMW Open by FWU AG 2015 in Munich, Germany, defeating Philipp Kohlschreiber and earning a brand new BMW i8.
The final match was postponed due to persistent rain, making it the first time in the history of the tournament that it had been left without a winner on the Sunday. The Scot won by 7:6 (4), 5:7 and 7:6 (4) after 3:05 hours. This was the first ATP title on clay in Murray’s career, and also marked the first British success on clay since 1976.
Tournament winner Murray was presented with a pair of Lederhosen – and, to the delight of the fans, he tried them on there and then. The 27-year-old also received the key to the BMW i8 plug-in hybrid, which he promptly took for a spin on center court.
“This title means an awful lot to me,” Murray commented. “After all, it was my first on clay. I really enjoyed the week here in Munich. It was a magnificent tournament. Philipp was actually the better player in the third set today, but the key points went my way. The weather didn’t bother me. As a Scot, I’m used to the rain.”
