Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray insists a good players needs to have multiple plans so he can adjust if something goes wrong. Murray has made some adjustments to his game following his two hip surgeries but he is not as successful as he was once.
Murray has always been known as one of the best players when it comes to the tactical part. "I think sometimes I'm too weak in the most important moments of a match and I have to find the right balance in those kinds of situations.
For example, I feel like I'm playing a lot more at the net and not always being successful in this kind of situation. Obviously there are some things that I have changed in my tennis that have worked very well, but there are others that I need to continue to improve if I want to be the Murray of a few years ago.
In tennis, if you repeat the same pattern of play or try to play the same thing, you are lost. It doesn't always work. You have to have a Plan A, a Plan B and even a Plan C. If you are a player who is just playing the same game, you are lost.
If you are a tennis player with only one thing in mind, you are not making the right decision," Murray said, per We Love Tennis.
Murray set to play in Vienna
Murray's lone title since returning to the Tour following two hip surgeries came in Antwerp in 2019.
Murray returned to Antwerp this week but failed to defend his title as he lost to Diego Schwartzman in the round-of-16. Murray, the 2014 and 2016 Vienna champion, received a wild card into Vienna and he is set to make his third appearance at the tournament. I had tough draws, Vienna and Paris will be as well tough tournaments," Murray said after the Schwartzman loss.
