Murray stormed to the Aix-en-Provence final, his first on clay in seven years, after defeating the likes of Gael Monfils and Harold Mayot in the earlier rounds. The 35-year-old then came back from a set down and defeated Tommy Paul in the final to secure his first ATP Challenger event victory since 2005.
Following the victory, Murray took in the moment with his team, including his mother Judy Murray, who is often seen in attendance at the former world number one's matches. However, Judy Murray later took great delight on Twitter in sharing the price of her plane ticket over to Marseille for the final.
"So lucky that @ryanair had a direct flight to Marseille this morning and I could make it to @ATPChallenger Aix en Provence for the final. And it was only £14.99 🤣… worth every penny!!"
The arrival of Judy Murray for her son's final success came as a shock to the three-time Grand Slam champion, who was unaware his mother would be at the match. Judy Murray later explained to the official ATP website that the travel took some planning, but it is nothing out of the ordinary for her.
“I said, 'Look, I can get a flight and I'm going to come across'. The thing for him and Jamie for that matter is that I'm so used to travelling around the world and having to adapt travel arrangements at the last minute because of all my years on the junior and the women's tour and the men's tour,”
"So nothing fazes me really with travel. They know that I am perfectly capable of looking after myself. I can contact the tournament and say, 'Could you pick me up and whatever, whatever.' So they don't need to bother about me. They know I'll find a way.”
