Andy Murray’s title drought continues.

Murray’s bid for his first men’s singles championship in over two years was thwarted by Russia’s Aslan Karatsev in Saturday’s Sydney Tennis Classic final. Highest seeded Karatsev rode to a 6-3, 6-3 victory for his third ATP Tour title.

Despite the loss, it was Murray’s best week since taking his 46th singles title in Antwerp in October 2019, giving him plenty of reasons to be optimistic ahead of the Australian Open, which starts Monday. Murray will face Nikoloz Basilashvili, whom he defeated in the round of 16 in this opening round event.

“I want to thank my team for all their help this week,” Murray said via Sky Sports. “First time in the final in three years. It’s been a long road to get back here, but I couldn’t have done it without your help, so thank you.”

In the women’s competition, Paula Badosa defeated French Open champion Barbora Krejcikova 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 for her third singles title.

“We both pushed ourselves to the limit today,” Badosa said.

Both Badosa and Krejcikova will be players to watch at the Australian Open. Badosa will face Ajla Tomljanovic in the first round, while Krejcikova will face Andrea Petkovic.

Keys takes title in Adelaide

Madison Keys defeated Coco Gauff in a thrilling three-set women’s semifinal at the WTA tournament in Adelaide.

Her title match was not that difficult.

Keys rode to a 6-1, 6-2 win over another American, Alison Riske, on Saturday to capture her sixth WTA title. Keys’s attention now turns to the Australian Open, where she will face the world’s number 12 Sofia Kenin in the first round.

In the men’s competition, Thanasi Kokkinakis won his first ATP title with a 6-7, 7-6, 6-3 victory over Arthur Rinderknech.
