The crucial match came just two days after the Scotsman defeated one of his trickiest opponents, Grigor Dimitrov, in the competition. The 27-year-old faced another ordeal following the game as he was quizzed about whether he planned to wear a kilt for his wedding, and what, if anything, would be under it.

"Yes obviously, proper kilt," he said. Keen to make a quick exit, he added: "I've got a match to play in a couple of days, can I go now?"
