Murray beats Yound in Thailand Open final
BANGKOK (AP) - Fourth-ranked Andy Murray claimed his 19th career title in beating American Donald Young 6-2, 6-0 in the final of the Thailand Open on Sunday.
The top-seeded Briton was in complete control throughout the 48-minute match, exploiting the lack of experience and unforced errors from his 55th-ranked opponent.
Young was playing in his first tour final.
Murray opened the match at Impact Arena by jumping out to a double break lead of 4-0. Young finally got on the board to make it 5-1 but lost the first set when Murray hit an overhead smash winner.
The second set featured more one-way traffic with Murray extending his advantage, while his American opponent's game was marred by unforced errors, winning only three from 27 points in the set.
