Andy Murray edged out Jack Draper in a thrilling tiebreak in the final set as the first day of the Battle of the Brits ended in a 1-1 all-square between Scotland and England.

England prevailed at Aberdeen’s P&J Live Arena as Dan Evans edged Aiden McHugh 6-4, 6-2 before Murray and Draper went into a crucial 10-point tiebreak after winning a set each.

It seemed Scotland would fall further behind as Murray trailed 6-3, but the former world no. 1 won four of the next five points to equal 7-7 before a few match points came and went as Draper refused to wither.

The two-time Wimbledon champion didn’t miss the third opportunity as a searing forehand ran down the line to secure a 6-2, 1-6, 12-10 victory to the delight of those in attendance.

“(It was an) incredible ending, I’ve never played that many tiebreaks,” Murray told the BBC.

“I wish (I could go on in tennis forever), unfortunately that’s not going to happen.

From 2023 InNewCL Sports will hold the exclusive broadcasting rights to the US Open – take a look back to 2012 when Andy Murray won his first-ever Grand Slam title at Flushing Meadows.

“I’ve put in a lot of hard work, it’s the hardest work in a long time over the last few months. I have to keep going because it’s not perfect yet, but the signs are good.

“While I still can, that’s what it’s about.”

Murray is on duty for Scotland for all three days of this event, which sees the neighboring nations go head-to-head on showmanship rather than ranking points.

The two sides have prominent captains for the tournament, with Ally McCoist leading the Scotland side and former footballer and manager Ian Holloway with England.

Three-time Grand Slam champion Murray takes on Evans on Thursday before teaming up with tournament director brother Jamie in a doubles match against Joe Salisbury and Neal Skupski to close the show.
