The three-time Grand Slam champion shared his insights from today’s match. “I learned quite a bit tonight,” Andy Murray added. “I expected to be the worst player and do not feel particularly good on the court, which was probably the case in the first set. But then I think I started to play better in the second and started to serve a bit better, see the returns a little bit better and things.”

Andy Murray feels comfortable after undergoing hip surgery. “I have zero discomforts in my hip after the match. Nothing. And if I had done this last year, I’d be here aching, throbbing, and feel bad the next day. So I’ll just keep pushing and see how it goes. But I feel optimistic about the future. I don’t know how long it will take to get to that level, but, hopefully not too long,” he added.
