Murray destroys Young in Bangkok final
Andy Murray took just 48 minutes to wrap up the Thailand Open title with a 6-2 6-0 victory over Donald Young in Bangkok.
The American was competing in his first ATP Tour final after defeating second seed Gael Monfils in the semis, but the Scot was a challenge too far.
"In terms of the way I’m playing it’s very good to get off to a start like that on this stretch and hopefully I can continue that through Shanghai," Murray said afterwards.
"I just played really well. Towards the end of the first set he started to play a bit better, but once I got up in the second I hardly made any mistakes."
"He played well. I couldn’t do much and it showed in the score," admitted Young. "It was great play from him. It was my first final on the ATP World Tour; I’ve had a semi and the fourth round of a slam, but there’s nothing like your first final. It’s great. I beat some high calibre players and I played well."
Young looked nervous from the off, losing the first four games as Murray pounced on every weakness.
The Bangkok crowd hoped for a more competitive second set after the American held a couple of service games at the end of the first set, but they were to be disappointed.
Murray allowed Young just three points in the entire set as his experience told to collect a 19th tour title.
