Andy Murray has poked fun at his French Open struggle after he was taken to five sets in the competition’s second round.
The world number two gave his fans at home a scare when he was forced to fight back to beat wildcard Mathias Bourgue to secure his place in the third round.
Murray even managed to lose eight consecutive games to drop the second and then the third sets to the inspired 22-year-old Grand Slam debutant.
The fright came just two days after Murray was taken to five sets by first round opponent Radek Stepanek, eventually winning a thrilling match.
Murray is calling on all his experience to pull him through battle after battle and judging by his latest Instagram post, he knows he’s riding his luck:
We have to say, having caught a bit of today’s match, that’s an accurate post from Murray.
Fingers crossed he gets his act together for Friday’s match against the hard-hitting Ivo Karlovic. Should be a toughie.
