Andy Murray makes defiant message to have 'deep runs' in tournaments after Vienna loss

Asia's Tech News Daily

Former world No 1 Andy Murray has posted a defiant message following his latest loss at the Vienna Open.

The three-time grand slam champion lost in straight sets in the second round to Spain’s teenage star Carlos Alcaraz, 6-3 6-4.

Murray had secured his first win over a top 10 player in 14 months after beating Hubert Hurkacz in the opening round, but was unable to follow it up on Wednesday.

After the match the former world number one vowed to go deeper in tournaments and find the level of consistency he once had – after recently admitting he could enter the Paris Masters via qualifying.

“I’m not going to keep losing in the second and third round of tournaments,” said Murray – who recently saw Cameron Norrie take over as British No 1 recently.

“I will get better and I will improve and I will break through in one week, or two weeks, or a few months. It will happen. I obviously would like it to be happening quicker than what it is.

“If I continue on that path and build up a little bit more consistency, be that little bit more clinical and a bit more ruthless, I will start winning more and have some deep runs, but it’s tough.”

The British tennis icon suffered tough losses in the second round in Antwerp, third round at Indian Wells and second round in San Diego earlier this month.

Reaching the quarter-final at the Moselle Open last month was Murray’s best result in 2021 so far.

With the Davis Cup just around the corner, the two-time Olympic champion, who won the event in 2015, has made a number of U-turns surrounding his participation in the event.

After exiting Indian Wells, Murray said he was not planning to join Great Britain’s Davis Cup squad, admitting: “I don’t feel right now I would be playing. Obviously that would be up to [captain Leon Smith], but I’m not sure I deserve to play in that team.

“Cam [Norrie] and Dan [Evans] have had a great year. Liam Broady is in and around the top 100 now and we’ve got very strong doubles as well.

“Right now, I’m not planning on playing the Davis Cup and with the late finish to it, and early departure to Australia, with my schedule between now and the end of the year, I am going to have to rest and take a break and give my body a chance to breathe.

“And I want to make sure in the off season I get to spend as much time with my family as I can because I have been away from that recently and that will be case when I go to Australia as well.”

He later made a U-turn saying he could be “convinced to play” with one spot left on the team but he has again put talk of him competing at the Davis Cup to bed.

After his defeat to Alcaraz, Murray mapped out the rest of the season before admitting the Davis Cup is “not something I’m planning on.”
