Murray Vows Not To Flop At London

By Ikenga Chronicles November 9, 2016

Andy Murray has vowed to do his best to retain his number one status and not flop in London.

The World Number One admits that there have been times when he has felt ‘fried’ coming into the last event of the tennis season. His relatively average record at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals backs that up, but then he has never entered with the buoyancy of the world No 1 status that was officially handed to him on Monday.

Murray awoke at his Surrey home atop the world rankings, but by mid-afternoon was given a stiff reminder that his new position is no guarantee of receiving a preferable draw.

“For the last couple of years the circumstances have been a bit trickier,” said Murray, who plans to rest until resuming practice on Thursday.

“Last year I was getting ready for the Davis Cup final and preparing on clay, it’s not the right way to prepare if you’re trying to win it against the best players.”

“So this year maybe will be different to the last one. I’ve always gone into London trying to do well, and it’s never quite happened for me.”

“I’ve had a couple of tough losses, Rafa in the semis once, and one year (2014) I was really trying to chase the points to get in there and I played probably too much – by the time I got there I was a bit fried.”
