Tennis - The pressure and expectations surrounding Andy Murray all peak around the time of Wimbledon. And with the grass court major coming up in a couple of weeks, Murray will be the cynosure of all eyes once again as he aims to win the Wimbledon title for the third time in his career.
But the Scot would rather be invisible to the public at large. In an interview to The Times, Murray says if he could, he would choose the superpower of invisibility. "I don’t like being the centre of attention and obviously when you lose a match and there are lots of people around, you just want to go unnoticed.
I’d hope the people I work with and my friends would tell me what they think. but I’m not interested in what someone in the crowd is saying about me, that’s not why I’d want to be invisible.” In the interview, Murray also talks about the switch from clay to grass and the difficulties associated with the same. "It’s not easy.
Your bum and your lower back get really sore because you’re having to bend down a lot for the balls. I find on clay my muscles get more tired, you play longer rallies. My joints on the grass hurt a little bit more as you have to be a lot more precise with your movements.
You have to change your mentality a little bit, get into a rhythm”. Murray will be heading into the Queen's Club event which begins on Monday as the favourite to win, having won the title five times previously in his career.
