Former world number one, Andy Murray, is a busy figure when on the court. The 33-year old is famous for showing his emotions and passion with roars to cheer himself up. However, all these things were missing when Murray played the first-round match against Stan Wawrinka in the French Open.

While there have been claims that this would have happened due to Murray’s loss of motivation, the British player says that he just tried to keep himself calm and show less of what he felt inside.

Additionally, Murray said, “Over in the states, I was getting a bit frustrated during the matches. I was trying to try and keep my emotions in check on the court.”

“I Did Not Play Well Enough”- Andy Murray

Besides, the three-time Grand Slam winner also said, “I do not know whether that affected me in any way or not. That is why I was quieter than usual. I was trying to be calmer on the court.”

Additionally, Andy Murray did suffer in the match. And he also talked about them in the interview. He said, “I did not play well enough. I served less than 40%, and that is just not good enough.”

Besides, it was a struggle for Murray in the match. Coming to Paris after three years, he would have liked to start better. But a disappointing defeat to Wawrinka by 6-1, 6-3, and 6-2 has ended his journey. 

However, it is still great to see someone as good as Murray to remain positive even in this situation. He explained, “I will keep going. Let us see what the next few months hold. I reckon I won’t play a match like that between now and the end of the year.”
