In the last year or so, Andy Murray has emerged himself as a player who is capable of making an huge impact on clay-court, but that wasn't the case throughout his whole career. Murray who captured his first titles on a dirt last year, when he ended up as an victorious in back-back-back events, Munich and Madrid, noted that clay is not the most favorable surface when it comes to players who come from the United Kingdom.

''There’s not many tennis players that have come out of the UK and played well on the clay'', said Murray, according to the Daily Express.

Two-time Grand Slam champion, Murray, reminded of his decision to go to Spain when he was 15 in order to train for a couple of years on that specific surface, and added more, ''I’m not saying that’s necessarily the reason I’m here today – but if I hadn’t done that I wouldn’t have got that base that I gained.'' However, Murray who has reached his first Roland Garros final where he is set to meet Novak Djokovic in Sunday's final, now can enjoy the fruits of his hard work and dedication.
