Andy Murray: Playing well means nothing it you are not winning

Former world No. 1 Andy Murray has acknowledged that making good results is his main goal for the remaining tournaments of the season. Murray, now ranked at No. 172 in the world, suffered a round-of-16 exit in Antwerp as Diego Schwartzman beat the Briton 6-4 7-6 (4).

Murray is set to play two more tournaments in 2021 as he received wild cards into Vienna and the Paris Masters. "In the next couple of weeks I look for results. Sport is results business, it doesn't really matter playing well if you don't win.

Is better winning when you don't play your best. I had tough draws, Vienna and Paris will be as well tough tournaments," Murray said after the Schwartzman loss, per Lorenzo Ercoli.

Murray showed love and respect by Frances Tiafoe

Murray edged out Tiafoe in three hours and 45 minutes in his Antwerp opener.

After the match, Tiafoe shared a heartfelt message to Murray. "I don’t even really know what to say. Last night was just insane," Tiafoe wrote in an Instagram post. "It definitely hurts to be on the wrong side of the stick after a match like this….but damn that’s why I play this game.

To battle the best players in the world. We sure did battle 2 out 3 sets in 3 hrs and 45 minutes. I’m still hurting bro. Gotta S/O @andymurray you a true inspiration bro. Everything you been thru and your playing at this high of a level and still keep your standards extremely high.

Asking for the best out of yourself and then some. All while having a metal hip. Your the biggest competitor I know the respect I have for you is thru the roof. As much as I wish I beat yo ass last night. To share a historic match like that glad it was against you man. Nothing but love and respect for SIR ANDY MURRAY."
