Murray made his comeback in 2019, he skipped Australian Open this year. Then he made his comback again in Cincinnati Open but Murray hasn’t found his old rhythm back.
In the ongoing US Open, he knocked out in the second round by the 15th seed F. Auger Aliassime of Canada in straight sets by 6-2, 6-3, 6-4. Now, Patrick Mouratoglou (Serena’s coach) has got something to tell Andy.
Patrick’s advise to Andy
Patrick Mouratoglou has been Serena Williams‘ coach through 10 of her Grand Slam wins out of 23. On being asked to make a comment on Andy Murray, he said “He’s a hard worker. He has to work every point, every rally. He needs to think like Roger did, even though Roger has, of course different Tennis from him but he thought how to shorten the rallies, how am I going to win Grand Slams against guys who are fitter in a way that they can play much longer.”
Patrick advised the former World number 1, 33-year-old Murray to not only work hard but also work smart.
Murray’s Career Highlights
There was never any doubt regarding Andy Murray being an exceptional talent in the Tennis fraternity. With 3 Grand Slam titles, 2 Olympic Golds and a Davis Cup title to his name, he has proved himself on various grounds from time to time.
