Andy Murray's level of play has been spotty in 2014, but he's still capable of conjuring up some magic. In his second round match at the Sony Open against Matt Ebden, Murray dropped the first set 6-3 before finding his groove and winning 12 of the last 13 games of the match to win 3-6, 6-0, 6-1.

By the third set the defending champion had his all-court game flowing. After getting drawn in with a good drop shot from Ebden, Murray had to chase down a well-placed lob and improvised from there, going with a no-look backhand flick that he somehow yanked sharply cross-court for the winner. Does he have eyes in the back of his head?

Murray will play Feliciano Lopez in the third round on Sunday. Surely he'll try and get to a faster start and avoid playing yet another three-set match. In 12 ATP Tour-level matches this season, Murray has gone the full three sets in nine of them.
