Andy Murray reckons to win Davis Cup has been the proudest achievement for him in his career so far.
Great Britain recently emerged the winner of Davis Cup after a gap of 79 years, getting the better of Belgium in the title round with Murray playing a huge part in it.
Murray says he never got as emotional after any of his victories in his career as he got that day.
According to the Scot, he was not sure whether he would ever manage to bring Davis Cup glory to his country. So, to be able to do it was ever so special and he would relish that for the rest of his life.
Speaking on a television programme, Murray said, “It’s unbelievable really. I had overdose of emotions which was obvious. It was immense. We had not had it for the past so many years. It was such a proud feeling for everyone associated with the group and also, for the fans in the country.”
“You have a few top moments in your career which remain with you forever and I believe it was definitely one such moment for all of us. Irrespective of what we do from here on in, we can be very proud of the fact that we are the Davis Cup winners.” Read more »
Andy Murray would be quite relieved to be able to finally secure a win versus Novak Djokovic to clinch Rogers Cup yesterday.
In the previous eight meetings between the two players, Djokovic had beaten Murray every time.
To avenge all those loses, Murray could perhaps not have chosen too many better occasions than this.
Not only did he break the jinx, but, also sent a statement to his rivals ahead of making his way to Flushing Meadows.
Djokovic had pretty much won everything this season and thus, coming into this final, there was hardly anyone who was not putting his money on him.
Murray’s head to head record against him was also making him the clear favourite.
But, the Serb was not quite in his groove from the start.
After losing the first set though, he came back, but, was off the mark again in the decider and ended up failing to add to his three titles that he had won in Montreal in the past.
As far as Murray is concerned, this was the 35th time that he managed to win a singles title on the professional tour.
Now, he is certain to go past Roger Federer and get to no. 2 in the world rankings. Read more »
Andy Murray is certainly not as poor a tennis player as his record against Novak Djokovic suggests.
The Scot just does not seem to be ever going to get over the line versus his Serb opponent.
In the recent clash between the two which had taken place at Indian Wells, Murray had led up with quite a bit of consistency and form and his fans were hoping that he would finally be able to break the jinx, but, that was not the case to be.
It was the same sort of outcome again with Djokovic winning hands down, 6th time on the trot.
Murray had a disconsolate look on his face as he confronted the media once the match was over.
He said his slowness at the start gave Djokovic the edge and the match headed in only one direction from there onwards.
In the words of Murray, “I was feeling pretty good leading to this contest to be honest, but, I think I was a bit slow in the first few minutes and that might have made the difference.” Read more »
