“Don’t Think Anyone Will Get Close To It”: Andy Murray
Murray echoed Nadal’s achievements with colossal enthusiasm and said that he’s just one short of winning the same amount at one tournament just like Pete Sampras did in the Grand Slam.
“I didn’t see loads of the match. I was practicing while it was going on. I saw a little bit at the end. An amazing achievement.”, Andy Murray told reporters while discussing Nadal’s victory.
“Obviously he could win another one and make it 14 or 15, whatever he finishes on, but he is one short of winning the same amount of Grand Slams as (Pete) Sampras did at just one tournament,” he added, sounding confident about Nadal’s achievements.
Murray continued, “It’s incredible. I think it’s one of the best records in sport, maybe the best. I don’t think it will ever be repeated, and I actually don’t think anyone will get close to it.”
Murray admits that Nadal’s achievements are not easy to beat, and it would be tough to climb that wall.
However, he exclaimed that he predicts that Novak and Nadal will finish their career with the maximum number of Grand Slam titles.
“Providing they all stay fit, and if they retire all at the same age, then I would think it would be between Rafa and Novak,” he concluded.
Besides, he (Murray) wishes for their better well-being. It was indeed good to see him praising Nadal all over.
