The British numero uno Andy Murray claims that he’s playing much better than he was at the time of his historic Wimbledon title in 2013. Considering his performance after getting hitched, him emerging victorious at the All England Club, which would delight the locals, wouldn’t come as too much of a surprise
“You have to improve. If you don’t, people will take your spot,” Murray said. “I feel like I have improved. Physically I’m definitely in a better place than I was then. Obviously I was having problems with my back around that time.”
The world no. 3 is excited for Wimbledon and looks in formidable form after demolishing Kevin Anderson in the Aegon Championship final.
Murray also said that he would have to break the Djokovic jinx in order to win more majors. The Scott has lost four of his last six meetings with the Serb that include the finals at Australian Open and Miami and semi-final exits at Roland Garros and Indian Wells.
“It’s obviously a shame I’ve lost to Novak, but I’ve been close in a lot of the matches,” Murray said.
“I’ve done it before when I won US Open and Wimbledon and the Olympics, and I need to continue to improve and learn from those matches.
“There’s only one player in the world that’s played better than me this year.I would like to be that player and hopefully in the future I can be.”
With Wimbledon just a week away, Andy Murray is surely the man to beat alongside defending Champion Novak Djokovic. The 2013 straight sets win for Murray against the Serb should help him if these two giants happen to clash again at SW19.
