Murray completed his triumph when Mannarino missed a drop shot. The 2009 Indian Wells finalist said after the match, "I thought my mentality was good tonight. I sort of focused just on every single point. I don't know if it felt it inside the stadium, but it was pretty breezy on the court, especially in the first set. Maybe some of the points were not that consistent, but I fought for every single point. That was the goal coming into the match and it got me the win."
