Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray admitted he felt a bit confused at times last season but now he is starting to regain confidence and feel much more comfortable on the court. Murray, who has had two major hip surgeries since 2017, hasn't been the same player ever since.
However, Murray is refusing to quit as he loves the game of tennis and wants to go out on his own terms. Murray is having a solid week in Metz, having reached the quarterfinal. “This period has been the most tournaments I’ve played [recently] and my body feels good and I’m starting to gain just a little bit of confidence with each match.
[I’m] starting to see the points and how I want to play them again, which is great,” Murray said in his on-court interview after beating Vasek Pospisil, per the ATP website “There have been times in the past year where I’ve been a little bit confused and not seeing how the points are developing and stuff, which for me was always a strong part of my game and it made me feel quite uncomfortable on the court when I was feeling that way.
“I’m starting to get that back and the results are coming and my tennis is getting better”.
Murray routed Pospisil
Murray, a former world No. 1, handed a 6-3 6-3 loss to Pospiisl to advance to the Metz quarterfinal.
Murray claimed two breaks of serve in each set to book a straight-set win over Pospisil. "I was trying to make him work a lot on his own service games," Murray said. "He’s got an excellent serve and likes to dictate with the first ball after the serve, so I was trying to focus on getting lots of returns back and then when I got the opportunity on the second serve, try and put some pressure on him. I think I did that well."
