Through a video posted for BBC Sport, the three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray sent an emotional message to any young sports people. 'My message to young sports people is that you're all going to have setbacks along the way.
Everybody gets them. You're going to have disappointments. You might not get selected for your team, you might lose in big finals, but that's okay. It's not a bad thing. You are going to have people when you lose these matches telling you can't do it, that you're not capable.
You're always going to have negativity out there. But if you keep believing in yourself, if you keep working hard, you'll get there. You'll get to reach your goals and ambitions. Go out there and do it. Good luck', said Murray, who has not been competing since Wimbledon in July due to a hip injury.
Meanwhile, Murray started training in Key Biscayne, Miami, on the Central Court at Crandon Park. He plans to stay there for a few weeks, then get to Australia before Christmas.
Any young sportspeople out there, a message to you from Andy Murray on dealing with disappointment, setbacks, negativity & bouncing back stronger to succeed.
