Former world number one Andy Murray lost his second-round match at the US Open 2020 on Thursday night. After the match, he admitted that winning another Grand Slam title will be a harder one at the same time he will try his best for that.
The 33-years-old Murray made his first Grand Slam singles comeback in the New York major after his hip resurfacing surgery. While Briton gave his best on the courts, unfortunately, three-times Grand Slam Champion was defeated by Canadian Felix Agur-Aliassime in the second round (6-2, 6-3, 6-4).
Murray expressed his comeback experiences after the match, “I mean, you know, you guys obviously don’t know how I was feeling even just a couple of months ago. So like I said, to come over here and play, you know, I played a couple of tough matches in Cincinnati and I played certainly one very tough match here, and my right hip felt good. That’s really, really positive.”
Additionally, the Scottish man added, “There are other things, like I said, that need to get better, but I would say that I’m more positive now than what I was a couple of months ago, that’s for sure.”
“I Might As Well Shoot For The Stars”- Andy Murray
The British tennis star has been participating in the major events since the 2005 Wimbledon. Murray won his maiden Grand Slam title at the 2012 US Open, followed by he lifted two trophies at SW 19 in 2013 and 2016. Notably, Andy Murray has reached 11 Grand Slam finals in his career.
2012 US Open Champion Murray said about a chance of winning another Grand Slam title in his career, “In terms of winning Grand Slams again, that’s going to be extremely difficult to do. It was hard enough when I had two normal hips. So it will be difficult, but I’ll keep trying, like, why not? ‘Why shouldn’t I try my hardest to do that? And if I don’t, that’s all right.”
In conclusion, he mentioned, “But I might as well shoot for the stars. And if I don’t – yeah, if I don’t get there, then that’s all right. But I’m trying my best to get the most out of what my body gives me now.”
