Andy Murray advanced into the second round at the Roland Garros beating Andrey Kuznetsov in four sets. After losing the second set 6-4, Murray won the two remaining sets 6-2 6-0. 'It definitely got better as it went on', the World No.
1 said. 'Started to move a bit better towards the end. Was hitting the ball better when I was defending. That's something the last few weeks I haven't done so well and didn't start off the match doing particularly well.
But once I was getting a little bit more on my ball when I was defending, there wasn't too many openings for him in the points.
But, yeah, it was a decent start, considering obviously how I played in the buildup.' About Margaret Court and her open letter against same sex marriage, Murray said: 'I heard about it.
I didn't know, I hadn't heard anything about the arena changing names. I'm not sure about that.
I don't see why anyone has a problem with two people who love each other getting married. You know, if it's two men, two women, that's great.
I don't see why it should matter. It's not anyone else's business. Everyone should have, in my opinion, should have the same rights. And, yeah, that's my view on it. I don't agree with that.' Asked if he would boycott Margaret Court Arena at the Australian Open, Murray said: 'If something was going to be happening and the players come to an agreement, if they think the name should be changed or whatever, that should be decided before the event, before the event starts.
I would imagine a lot of the players would be pretty offended by that. So, yeah, we'll see what happens.' Then he revealed an anecdote involving him, Brad Gilbert and Andre Agassi: 'When went out for dinner, we were going into, like, a hotel/casino in Las Vegas, and he opened the door but, like, the door was like one of those big sort of handles so it goes right down to the bottom.
And he literally knelt, like, got on his knees to open the door right at the bottom of the handle eI was, like, What are you doing? He says, No one touches the door down there (laughter). He's a bit of a germaphobe, you know, like he doesn't -- for me, that was pretty strange.
Yeah.' Then he finally spoke about becoming father and how his priorities changed. 'Before I became a dad, when decisions would be made around my tennis, it was, like, the first thing that you do is just the best thing for your tennis.
Whereas now, you know, that changes a little bit in terms of my scheduling, a little bit in terms of my training. I have spent a little bit more time at home than maybe I would have done in the past.
When I'm looking at the schedule I speak with my wife a lot about it, about which events, you know, she's going to potentially come along to and making sure that we're not apart for more than three or four weeks at a time.
Because I have noticed especially in the last, you know, the last few months the older that she gets, the more things she's doing, the more she's changing -- this is my daughter, not my wife (laughter) -- yeah, so I don't want to miss, like, I don't want to miss anything.
So that the more we can split up the trips, the better.' .
