“Sort of Robustness”- Andy Murray Hopes to Improve His Game After US Open Exit


Andy Murray exited earlier from this year’s US Open after lost against Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime in the second round. However, the former world number one believes he will elevate his game in the upcoming days.

Murray was faced with 20-years-old Felix Auger-Aliassime on Thursday night in Flushing Meadows. While opponent hit 52 winners and 24 aces, three-times Grand Slam Champion did not craft a single breakpoint in the 2 hours and 9 minutes match.


After the match, Andy Murray said, “Physically, you know, I actually did pretty well I thought in the first one. But I think the more tournaments that you play, the more matches that you play, you build up that sort of robustness in your body, which right now I don’t really have.”

While Briton compared his last week’s experiences at the Western and Southern Open with this scenario, Additionally, Murray explained, “I think the last two weeks, like, I played along with one against Zverev, and the next day didn’t play a particularly good match. Actually physically didn’t feel too bad but then the same thing again. Obviously played a long match the other day. And today wasn’t the level I would have hoped for.” 

“I’m More Positive About What I Could Do in Grand Slams”- Andy Murray

The 33-years-old Andy Murray admitted if he can stay healthy, he is going do hard workouts for his better comeback.  


He further said, “So that’s something that, you know, I’ll need to build up over the next few months and hopefully beginning of next year, you know, if I can stay healthy, I will be better able to back up difficult physical efforts.” 

“I would say even after tonight, like, I would say I’m more positive about what I could do in Grand Slams than I was before I came over here”, Murray concluded.
