Andy Murray’s, former world No.1 latest comeback from a severe hip problem ended after two matches as he lost 7-5 6-2 in only 81 minutes on Wednesday at the Brisbane International. Following the match, Murray admitted his lack of top-class tennis got brutally exposed in defeat to Danill Medvedev.
Murray said: “I made too many mistakes. When you play better players – he is 15 in the world or so, a top player – they will expose any errors you make in your game or any shots you are not hitting particularly well. He did that tonight. As you play up the levels, whether it is issues with your game – whether you are not serving as well or moving as well – the better players exploit that. I need to try and find a way of working out how to get around with some of the things I am struggling with now and I will try and do that.”
Asked about his hip, he said: “OK. Not perfect. Better than how I was competing a few months ago, when I was playing and competing back-to-back days.”
