Andy Murray: ‘If I keep seeing progress I’ll continue to keep playing’
Andy Murray has said that despite now being 35 years old, as long as he sees progress within his game he will happily continue to work hard to keep playing professionally.
The three-time Slam champion recently ended his grass court season by losing in the quarter-finals of Newport to Alexander Bublik in what was the pair’s fourth meeting already this year.
But Murray is now looking ahead to the North American hard court swing and the chance to build some momentum into the final Slam of the year, the US Open at the end of August.
“It was disappointing,” Murray said after his loss to Bublik. “[The] first set came down to a couple of points and then I had a few opportunities in the second. But I thought he played a pretty solid match.
“[I want] to continue to improve. If I keep seeing progress I’ll continue to keep playing.”
“The grass court season as a whole there were some good moments, but also some tough ones. Today’s match and the loss at Wimbledon were disappointing and frustrating for me, but then I also had my best wins in a while in Stuttgart.
“So a bit up and down, but a little bit of progress overall and I’ll try and keep that going through the hard court summer.”
Murray will next stop off at the ATP 250 Atlanta Open beginning 25th July before returning to compete in the singles of the 500 level Citi Open for the first time since 2018 come 1st August.
