Andy Murray appeared at the press conference after his second three-set win against Alexandre Muller and talked about his next opponent, his goals and other topics.
Andy Murray bounced back in the semifinals of the ATP 250 in Doha after winning three matches in which he needed to reach three sets. The Scot still needs marathon matches to progress through the rounds at the start of the season. Andy knows very well that he spends too much time on the field., but he believes it’s not something that will become a tonic in his season. After his last win, he went to a press conference to talk about Lehecka and his goals.
«Obviously he has started this year very well, I trained with him once in the grass season last year and he has a great game. He passes very well, hits the ball very cleanly. I don’t know why, but many of the best Czech players are like that. Works well and hits from both sides. When he’s on fire and he’s confident, he plays really well. I have to try to find a way to break his rhythm and make it difficult for him.».
«I used the chop from the beginning, maybe I used it better at the right moments. I feel like I used it at first because he forced me to use it. As the match progressed, I began to use it to my liking, in neutral or offensive situations for me. But when I was able to use that to change the momentum of the point and give him a little variation, you know, when I was in a good position, it worked really well.»
– Of course I would like to win one, but I have goals to achieve more. I’m putting myself in a position now, you know, to do it in the last game, but with the players still in the tournament, it’s not going to be easy. I feel like these last few weeks are a step in the right direction.«.
