'Getting to play with Roger Federer was really cool', says former No.1

Seeing him on the circuit is already a beautiful thing but there are many fans curious to know the level of Andy Murray at Wimbledon. The British tennis player is 34 years old but some years have already passed that see him absent or almost absent due to a serious hip injury, a stop that has seriously jeopardized his entire career.

Andy Murray made the history books here in 2013, claiming a British tennis player's victory back home after a very long time. At the press conference the tennis player, former world number one, shared his impressions. Speaking at the press conference, the British tennis player made interesting statements, here are his words: "Personally, it means a lot to me to be here, not just the UK.

Over the past 18 months we've all had other things to think about, more important things but I'm happy to be here and excited to be racing in front of the crowd, it's something I've been missing a lot. It is normal, but it becomes special to see that there are a couple of days left for the tournament and all the tennis players are here doing their thing, training or talking to the press, everything becomes enjoyable.

Slowly we are getting closer to normal and this makes me happy. Work out? The preparation was good, I did a lot of training with top tennis players even if maybe I wanted to do more. I am trying to improve myself physically and this is very important, I want to go to Wimbledon and feel comfortable."

Andy Murray traded hits with Roger Federer earlier on Saturday, sending social media abuzz.

Andy Murray on his practice session with Federer

Speaking to Sky Sports after his practice session with the Swiss maestro (Roger Federer), Andy Murray claimed that the experience was "really cool" and that he appreciated such moments more now than he did in his peak years.

"Getting to play with Roger was really cool for me," Murray said. "They're the sort of things that probably six, seven years ago I wouldn't have given any thought to it. I would have seen that as just being a practice session pre-major with a top player, and focusing on myself.

I've had some good practices with top players," Murray said. "I would like to have done more. But I'm also trying to manage the physical side as well, which is very important. I want to go into Wimbledon feeling as fresh and as comfortable as possible when I get out there."
