Andy Murray has played in the two Grand Slam and a master event last couple of months, while his best performance was the third round of the Western and Southern Open. Followed by French Open 2020, former world number one is now playing at ATP 250 events, which is going on right now in Cologne.
After a straight-set lost against Stan Wawrinka in the first round of Roland Garros, the seven-times Grand Slam winner Mats Wilander raised question over Murray’s career and asked, “Does he have a right to be out there taking wildcards from the young players?”
However, three times Grand Slam Champion Andy Murray is more confident in himself and admits he would like to try his utmost and crown him with many crowns in the upcoming tournaments.
Speaking ahead of the Cologne ATP event, Andy Murray said, “It will be good to hopefully get a few tournaments over the next few weeks and get some matches in. I think they’ve done a really good job here with the venue.”
He continued, “It’s really nice. I’m hoping I can perform better than I did in Paris. I want to try and win tournaments. Indoor hard courts have been a good surface for me.”
Moreover, Murray will face experienced Spanish star Fernando Verdasco in his opening match Cologne on Tuesday. According to the tournament draw, he also needs to defeat this year’s US Open runner up Alexander Zverev before reaching the quarterfinals.
“Next Year Will Be A Good One”: Andy Murray
While Murray has already revealed his plan in front of next season, he believes the rest of this year’s experience would help him perform well in the new year.
Additionally, Andy expressed, “I am hoping that over these next few months with more matches, more tournaments, and a training period going into the new year, that next year will be a good one.”
