Andy Murray, double Olympic champion after winning gold against Juan Martín del Potro this Sunday in Rio, said that this had been “the toughest game” he had to play to win “an important title.”
“I’m really happy. This has been one of the most difficult games I have had to play to win a major title. It has been very hard physically and emotionally, “he said.
The Scottish player had words of recognition for his rival and his return in a big way to the front row of world tennis.
“He had not seen any of his previous matches until yesterday with Rafa. Today he played extremely well, it is amazing how he has returned after everything that happened with the doll, again and again the same problem. It’s surprising that he’s come back and that he’s done it at this level. He must be very proud, it is not an easy thing to do, “he commented.
The Argentine “definitely” can once again be among the top five players in the world, he said.
Regarding the atmosphere on the track during today’s final, with continuous chants and boos exchanged between the fans, Murray said it had been “a great atmosphere” that “was not much of a problem.”
«The fans were divided quite evenly. In the Grand Slams it is not similar, it supports a player, but it is not one or the other, it is quite different, “he said.
The US Open is his next big goal, said the double Olympic champion. EFE
