Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray absolutely loves the individual nature that tennis gives you as he loves being fully responsible for everything he does.
Tennis is a sport in which players decide everything for themselves and Murray absolutely loves that part of the game.
Murray, 34, is set to make his debut at the Stockholm Open this week.
On Monday, Murray was asked at the tournament why he loves tennis so much.
“I like the individual nature of it. That you are responsible for everything. You are responsible for the outcome of the matches, your effort, who your team is, who your coach, physio is. I love that you get to travel the world and play in amazing cities like Stockholm,” Murray said in Stockholm.
Murray hoping for a good end to the season
Murray, now ranked at No. 143 in the world, is hoping to put on a good run in Stockholm and finish the season on a positive note.
Murray hasn’t had a great 2021 season and former British No. 1 Greg Rusedski recently suggested the 2022 season will be the defining year of Murray’s career.
“I think 2022 we will know what Andy Murray is going to do. Is he going to continue on tour or is it going to be his last year? I think this is kind of the season that’s going to determine how much longer we’re going to see of that great champion,” Rusedski told Sky Sports.
“Next year is going to allow him to make the decision he wants because he will look back at this year and say, ‘I trained really hard in the off-season, I was very unlucky I caught COVID so I was ready for the Australian Open’, which is one of his favourite tournaments. He reached the final on six occasions and he really didn’t get that momentum he was hoping for.”
