Andy Murray is one of the most talented players on the circuit. However, the former world number one was rarely seen executing a serve from underneath. To close the third game of the second set against Carlos Alcaraz in Indian Wells, he expanded his repertoire; he converted the ace and went into halftime with an advantage.
The 18-year-old was standing far behind the baseline and did not rush for Murray’s serve, who in that game saved two break points.
The British resorted to a service that was already widely used by the Australian Nick Kyrgios or the Kazakh Alexander Bublik.
