Andy Murray: If I retired, British tennis would be in good hands with Cameron Norrie

Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray has acknowledged that he has to be more clinical and ruthless when his opportunities come. Murray has proved that he is still able to compete against the world's best player but he often fails to capitalize on his chances and that leads to losing tight matches.

“I need to be a bit more clinical and ruthless when my opportunities come,” Murray said, per the ATP website. “That was one of the things when I was right at the top of the game was a strong part of my game and I need to get back to that.

When my opportunities come, I am going to take them and be clinical. Finish those sets off when you get ahead and not think that more chances are going to come along because when you play the top players, you don’t get loads”.

Murray says British tennis in good hands with Cameron Norrie

Norrie, 26, has made six finals this year and a week ago he captured his maiden Masters title in Indian Wells. “Cameron Norrie has had a fantastic season and has done really well,” Murray said.

“I don’t think he had ever made it to the quarter-finals of a Masters series before, so to come through and win it is a brilliant result for him and great for British tennis. If I finish tomorrow, I would feel comfortable that British tennis would be in a good spot."

After winning Indian Wells, Norrie admitted it all felt surreal to him. “It means so much to me, my biggest title. I’m so happy. I can’t even describe it right now,” Norrie said in his on-court interview, per the ATP website.

“It was a strange match today but absolutely massive for me and my team. I can’t really believe it. If you’d have told me I’d have won before the tournament started I wouldn’t have believed you, so it’s amazing."
