Andy Murray frustrated after Wimbledon exit
Posted On July 3, 2021
London [UK], July 3 (ANI): Former worldwide issue. 1 Andy Murray has been disappointed after winning just eight games against 10th seed Denis Shapovalov on Friday night in the third round at Wimbledon.
Against a 34-year-old with a metal hip and seven hours of elite tennis under his belt already this week, the No.10 seed was too often just the best player. He overtook the two-time champion 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 to become only the second left-hander, after Rafael Nadal, to defeat Murray at Wimbledon, and in doing so he reached week two here at SW17 for the first time.
Murray, who has won back-to-back Grand Slam matches for the first time since his hip problems began in 2017, is keenly aware that he is still a long way from the level that led him to two center court titles.
“There’s a part of me that feels like I’ve worked so hard over the last three months and ultimately not playing the way I want and expect. It’s like, ‘Is it worth it? ‘ Does all that training and everything you do in the gym – unless you can practice and improve your game and get matches and keep going, get a series of tournaments – is it worth it all? work you do? ”“ I don’t expect and I won’t say that I will beat Denis Shapovalov. He is a brilliant player. But I feel like I can do a lot better than what I have done tonight, ”Murray said after the game. .
The Scotsman will now focus his attention on the Tokyo 2020 Olympics where he will defend the singles title he won in London and Rio de Janeiro. (ANI)
