It’s time for the ATP Rotterdam 2021 and fans are really excited to witness some amazing tennis there. Former World No. 1 Andy Murray will also be playing at the tournament and will be hoping to make a comeback. He recently suffered a humiliating defeat at the ATP 250 Montpellier Open 2021, in which he lost to Egor Gerasimov in the very first round.
In the pre-match interview, Andy Murray talked about his future goals. He said that he was feeling physically good, and he expressed that he wanted to get back to winning again.
“I’m pumped to be back competing again. Physically I feel good, which is the most important thing. Obviously, the next most important thing for me is to get matches and to get back to winning again on Tour,”said Murray.
Murray recalled that he won the Rotterdam Open 2021 about twelve years ago, and a lot has changed since then. He admitted that he would have to adapt to the new conditions in order to succeed at the tournament. Murray also remembered the incident when he played Robin Haase, his opponent in the first round of the tournament around 13 years ago.
“It was 12 years ago when I won here and 13 years ago since I played Robin so that to me doesn’t have any baring nowadays on the match-up or how you will perform in the tournament or anything. A lot has changed since then,” added the 3-time Grand Slam champion.
Andy Murray reveals that his focus is to concentrate on each game and take every match one by one
Murray disclosed that he would focus on one match at a time. He also mentioned that Robin is a really talented player and it would be a tough match for him tomorrow.
“I want to try and get matches, but I need to just focus on the first one and try and get through that. I’ve played Robin a few times on Tour, we know each other pretty well. We’ve had some tough matches in big tournaments and he’s a talented guy with a big game. My focus is on that and trying to take each day as it comes just now,” continued the British player.
Murray also highlighted that that he would really need some early wins to boost his confidence. He believes he needs to adapt to the conditions as he is returning to Rotterdam after four to five years.
“When you haven’t played loads, you go into these matches and it’s not the same as it was four, five years ago when you were playing five, six matches a week, and you were used to that. I haven’t played much and need to build my confidence and get some wins back,” concluded Murray.
