Andy Murray heroically defeated world ranked 10967 Stanilas Warwinka of Switzerland over five sets (2/6, 6/3, 6/3, 5/7, 6/3) tonight.
This was only after the new £80, million roof collapsed narrowly missing spectators and players alike. Rumours are already circulating to the cause of the stadium malfunction. Some are calling it an act of God, some blame the wrong type of rain and others state that it was the effect of Murray's magnetic-like charisma that caused the near disaster.
The roof, made and fitted by the Shanxi Coking Coal Group, one of China's leading mining companies, was in use for the first time and it was hoped it would enable the match to be played into the night. Following the roof disintegration, debris had to be cleared from the court and stadium and, with the aid of giant umbrellas and candles, the contest finally finished at 22.38 local time.
During the post match interview Murray commented on the night as being the most memorable he could remember, eclipsing that of the Scottish football team, clawing back a 2-0 deficit, to gain an honorable draw against the footballing titans of the Faroe Islands in 2002.
