Andy Murray: The team is not dependent on me- View: 1327 by Akshay Kohli
Australian Lleyton Hewitt recently saying that all the pressure was on the World No.3 Andy Murray as Great Britain host Australia in the Davis Cup Semi-final. Murray responded by saying that the hosts are not a one man team and also that Hewitt will be under equal pressure as he is attempting to bow out of tennis as a Davis Cup champion.
“I wouldn’t say everything is on me,” Murray said. “We are in a position where everyone in the team would be playing their part and I think there is pressure on everyone.
It’s Lleyton’s last chance to win the Davis Cup and he’ll be feeling pressure as well. All of the players on his team will be feeling the same way. They have some young players that won’t have played in an atmosphere like this before either.” A lot of thinking is going in who plays the first singles and who features in the doubles teams.
“It depends on what happens,” Murray commented. “We could be 2-0 up after the first day and that changes things, 2-0 down changes things or regardless of whether or not I win or lose my match on the first day, if I play for 4 and a half or five hours, it's tough, clearly, to play the following day and then back it up on Sunday, that's not easy so it really depends on how all the matches go.” ALSO READ Leon Smith Admits the Pressure Will Be On Andy Murray
