In an interview, the day after his son Andy's five-set loss to Roberto Bautista Agut, Judy Murray commented on all the emotions that she and the whole camp went through during the long match against the Spaniard.
“I went from being concerned for him to just being like, ‘God, this is what you’re all about’, and it was great", said Judy, as quoted by The Telegraph. "When you’ve not been playing matches, you’re mentally rusty and obviously he was physically rusty because of his injury.
But I think from the second game [of the third set], when he turned round and he went, ‘Let’s go’, I thought, ‘You’re going to be OK’. He started using all his court craft and all his guile and all the things he enjoys about playing."
Andy will soon decide to undergo a hip surgery or not, and Judy admitted that the commitment and effort that tennis requires is very big: “What always concerned me was the limited amount of rest and recovery there was from competition, in particular", she confessed.
"But also what he put himself through in the off-season in order to get better. I think Roger Federer summed it up beautifully the other day when he said, ‘You have to trust in your talent’.
It’s not about volume, it’s about working smart." Speaking to Evening Express, Judy also commented on North Scotland not having enough indoor courts to play on when it rains: 'Moray and the north of Scotland have been crying out for indoor tennis courts for a long time now and this project is a fabulous opportunity to create year-round play and a winter base for local players and clubs.
The profile and interest in tennis in Scotland has sky-rocketed over the past 12 years but it’s very tough to take advantage of that if you don’t have public indoor facilities and a strong and vibrant workforce.
The two go hand in hand." ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
