Murray – “Patience Is The Key”

share on:

Andy Murray has admitted to winning the ugly way to make it the last-16 of the US Open at the expense of Italy’s Paolo Lorenzi.

The top ranked tennis star struggled in the match, making 63 unforced errors, but managed to win 7-6 (7/4) 5-7 6-2 6-3.

And the Scot said his game improved as soon as he stopped trying to force winners.

“It took me a little bit longer than I would have liked to work things out but I won, got through, and I didn’t play good so I’m happy with that,” Murray said.

“He’s ranked 40 in the world. He’s pretty good, so I expected a tough match. I expected long rallies.

“I’m just disappointed with the amount of errors I made. I was quite impatient at times. That cost me in the first and second sets.

“When I was more patient and waited for the right balls to go for, I played much, much better and dictated more of the points. I wasn’t going for too much.

“The unforced errors came down significantly and the winners went up. The third and fourth sets were comfortable. Obviously the first two were extremely, extremely tough.”
