Andy Murray: I'm not interested in playing well and losing

Former world No. 1 Andy Murray was glad with the way he played in Metz. Murray, now ranked at No. 113 in the world, made the Metz quarterfinal before losing to No. 1 seed Hubert Hurkacz. En route to making the Metz quarterfinal, Murray beat Ugo Humbert and Vasek Pospisil.

Murray didn't have impressive campaigns at the Winston-Salem Open and Cincinnati Masters, losing in the second round. “I think I played better this week than I did in Cincinnati and in Winston Salem,” said Murray, per Tennishead.

“I did play a pretty good match at the US Open. But like I said the other day, I’m not that interested in playing well and losing. “I want to be winning these matches and I’ve certainly created enough opportunities to not necessarily win all of them, but to make it closer than what it has been and give myself a better chance of winning.

So, yeah, I’m disappointed with that. "My goal is not to get back in the top 100. I want to get back into the top 10 – [that] would be more something that would motivate me in terms of the goal”.

Murray aims 700 ATP match wins

Murray needs around 15 more wins to make the 700 ATP wins club.

"There are two things that matter, your effort and your attitude,” Murray said earlier this week. “Which is probably number one, as that’s what you can control. For me sport is about that. You either win or lose.

“Winning is what sport is all about, and if you can play great whilst doing that even better. But if you can’t, and you don’t play your best, then winning is a great feeling. “That’s why I am still playing.

I have little goals — to get to 700 wins on tour. I’m not particularly interested in losing and playing well”.
