Jordan Thompson: 'That Murray upset was just a tennis match'

Australian tennis player Jordan Thompson insists he didn't get too high after stunning tennis superstar Andy Murray at Queen's Club. Thompson, 23, shocked record five-time Queen's champion Murray in round one this past June 7-6 (4) 6-2. The Australian lost in the final round qualifying for Queen's to France's Jeremy Chardy.He got into the main draw as a lucky loser after a player withdrawal. Murray, a three-time Wimbledon champion, had his grass-court campaign hampered by a hip injury. The Scot's last match of the season was a quarter-final defeat suffered to Sam Querrey at Wimbledon. Thompson fairytale at Queen's didn't last long as he lost in the following round to Querrey.

"That's a great question. I don't know," Thompson said when asked how would he describe himself. "I like to keep to myself, and I don't really get ahead of myself too much. That (Murray upset) was just a tennis match – it happened to be a good one for me and not so good for him, but he's still an unbelievable player… it just proves that anyone can beat anybody on any given day."
