Andy Murray wins first ever clay-court title in rain-delayed final of BMW Open

Andy Murray won his first clay-court title when he overcame Philipp Kohlschreiber, 7-6 (4), 5-7, 7-6 (4), in the rain-delayed final of the BMW Open in Munich, Germany.

The final was rained out on Sunday, with former two-time Munich champion Kohlschreiber leading 3-2 on serve.

Murray was in his first final on clay and won his 32nd career title, a welcome boost ahead of the French Open — the second Grand Slam of the season that is played on clay.


Serena Williams needed just 58 minutes to beat fellow American Sloane Stephens, 6-4, 6-0, and reach the third round of the Madrid Open.

The top-ranked Williams broke Stephens four times and saved both break points she faced to secure her 25th straight win. Williams remained undefeated in 2015, with her last loss coming in round-robin play at last year's WTA finals.

Caroline Wozniacki powered past Christina McHale of the U.S., 7-5, 6-0.


In the men's competition, John Isner beat Adrian Mannarino of France, 7-6 (2), 6-4, to reach the second round.

Steve Johnson came from a set down to beat Alejandro Gonzalez of Colombia, 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4). The former USC star will next play third-seeded Rafael Nadal .
