Playoffs team Andy Murray did his best after recovering from a hip surgery in a 6: 4, 6: 3 victory over eighth seed Pablo Cuevas to reach the quarter-finals of the European Open in Antwerp on Thursday.
The former world number one, who continues his comeback after undergoing hip surgery in January, saved his career by scoring four break points and losing just six.
After an unconvincing victory over Belgian Kemer Kubiens's unbeaten first-round pick, Murray showed signs of recovering from his fierce and strong performance against Cuevas from Uruguay.
Murray, who won three major titles across the field easily and looked dangerous when leading the net before achieving his seventh win in the ATP Singles Tournament with a landslide of 12 during the game.
In the next round, Murray will face Romanian qualifier Marius Cobel and Strong Service, who dropped 13 aces in a surprise 6-4, 5-7, 7-6 victory over third seed Diego Schwartzman.
