Andy Murray reveals how he felt just before the 2012 US Open final against Novak Djokovic


Andy Murray revealed that he felt «incredibly nervous» and «pretty lonely» before dating Arthur Ashe for the 2012 US Open final. In 2012, Murray finally made his Grand Slam breakthrough when he defeated Novak Djokovic 7-6 ( 10) 7-5 2-6 3-6 6-2 to win his first Grand Slam title.

“I remember how I felt before the match. I remember being alone in the locker room and feeling incredibly nervous and quite lonely and feeling a lot of pressure,» Murray recalled, via Tennis365.

“I remember that after the game I went back to the field before I left the place. I just wanted to be out there on my own. I was very proud of myself. I didn’t feel like freaking out and celebrating and that sort of thing.

I felt quite relaxed and it was a huge relief to get over that line.”

Murray beat Djokovic for his first Grand Slam title

At the time, Murray was 25 years old and playing in his fifth Grand Slam final. After losing the first four Grand Slam finals of his career, Murray began to fear that he would never win a Major.

After beating Djokovic in the 2012 US Open final, Murray was extremely relieved. «That was a big moment for me,» Murray said. “I had been put under a lot of pressure to try and pull that off. A lot of what I had accomplished in my career up to that point seemed a bit irrelevant to me anyway because of the questions I kept being asked about winning Slams.

Am I good enough? Am I fit enough? Am I strong enough mentally? Lots and lots of questions over a period of time.» Since then, Murray has appeared in six more Grand Slam finals. Overall, Murray is an 11-time Grand Slam finalist and has three major titles in his collection.
