Andy Murray: 'It's incredible what Federer did in Australia after a such long break'

Andy Murray had some beautiful words for Roger Federer's 18th Grand Slam title. The world no. 1 was very impressed with the Swiss player's run in Melbourne especially because he was not playing an official tournament since six months.

'It's incredible what he did in Australia after such a long break,' Murray said in a press conference on Thursday. 'We play so much -- a lot of the year. Sometimes coming to events fresh can have some huge advantages.

Him and Rafa were both coming back from a pretty significant period of time out and they both played extremely well. Maybe that's something we can all learn from moving forwards', added Murray, indicating maybe that he could have a lighter schedule in order to be longeve like Federer is.

Speaking about the two exhibition matches that they will play first in Zurich and then in Glasgow, Murray said: 'It's really good he's doing it. He's just extremely popular. He's one of the best players that's ever played the game.

It's not just how much he's won, but the way he plays and how he carries himself. He said a few years ago he wants to go to places he's not been. It's great.' He also had some suggestions for Roger when he will be in Glasgow: 'Don't try the fried Mars bars, I tried one last year and it was horrific.'
