Andy Murray quotes

Aug 20 2017

I think next year will be interesting. That will be the time to sort of tell whether it's done and that era is past.feedback

Aug 09 2017

I'm continuing to work hard on the court with the aim of being in New York.feedback

Aug 03 2017

I am sad to be missing the tournament in Montreal because I have many great memories from my time in Canada. I am doing everything I can to return as quickly as possible.feedback

Jul 19 2017

It's not easy to beat Barcelona's midfield when they were at their peak. You have (Sergio) Busquets, Xavi and (Andres) Iniesta. I mean, maybe there have been better players but that midfield – it was like a joke.feedback

Jul 13 2017

I think Venus and Serena have won about four each.feedback

Jul 12 2017

I've been dealing with it for a very long time during my career. Obviously as you get older, things are a little bit tougher to manage than they are when you're younger. There's a bit more wear and tear there.feedback

Jul 12 2017

The end of the fourth set and the fifth set, felt like he hardly missed any first serves. He's a big guy up there. Male player.feedback

Jul 12 2017

He was dictating all of the points.feedback

Jul 12 2017

I was pretty close today. It wasn't like I was, like, a million miles away from winning the match. Obviously, the end was a bit of a struggle.feedback

Jul 12 2017

If I'm struggling and not moving well, it affects my performance maybe more than other guys who don't rely on their movement as much.feedback

Jul 12 2017

Before the tournament [planning] was very short term, because you want to play Wimbledon.feedback

Jul 12 2017

I haven't played well enough this year to deserve to stay there for much longer. If it doesn't happen by the end of this tournament, it will happen by the end of the US Open.feedback

Jul 11 2017

Of course I knew it was important but in truth I was not really aware of how big a deal Wimbledon was, and how much focus there was on this event. I was so young, I just wasn't aware of it. I'd been playing tiny events just a few weeks before that.feedback

Jul 11 2017

I was enjoying pizza for dinner before facing some of the best players in the world. I do remember fairly clearly that I didn't eat well. With things like diet, we just didn't know any better and I was very naive.feedback

Jul 11 2017

Everyone likes different things. There will be people in this country who don't like watching me, who don't like my personality or who don't enjoy my style of play. That's why I think it's healthier for the sport if there are three or four players – men, women, left-handers, right-handers, tall players. Like my wife, for example. She likes watching players who are small and aren't as strong – players like Gilles Simon or Dominika Cibulkova.feedback

Jul 11 2017

With things like diet, we just didn't know any better and I was very naive. [And] when I went to speak to the press I just said whatever I was thinking, whatever was on my mind. There was no filter, no concept of everything else that goes on at an event this big.feedback

Jul 10 2017 - Feminism

Well, I don't think anyone's suggesting it is fair. I'm not suggesting that it is... But, like I said, I'm not the one that decides the schedule. When you start at 1:00pm and you can't play under the lights, you have a very limited amount of time.feedback

Jul 10 2017 - Feminism

I think ideally you would have two men's and two women's on Centre, potentially starting the matches a bit earlier would allow for that. [They] need to maybe find a way of allowing for an equal split of the men's and women's matches across the tournament rather than just looking at one day. If there's better matches on the women's side than the men's side, you can flip it. If there's better matches on the men's side, then that has to go first, as well.feedback

Jul 09 2017

Enough to get there and back. That would have been quite a sight for anyone watching. It can be valuable if I use it well. I need to make sure I practise properly, and it can be beneficial away from playing matches just to settle your body down and recover a bit. But there are also things I want to work on as well, so it's not like I just take two days' rest, I do a lot of stuff over the weekend as well and hopefully I feel a little bit better about my game on Monday.feedback

Jul 09 2017

I'll try to do stuff with my family in the mornings and the evenings around practice.feedback

Jul 09 2017

There's quite a few spots on the court, like just behind the baseline and just in front of the baseline, where there's quite big lumps of grass, sort of almost like little divots there, which I don't remember really being the case [in previous years].feedback

Jul 08 2017

Why not try and get five, six players into the quarter finals of Slams? Why not? Some of the players, like Kyle [Edmund] and Heather [Watson] and Jo [Konta], they're capable of doing more than that. So let's aim to try and go further.feedback

Jul 08 2017

With guys like Aidan [McHugh] and Cameron [Norrie, the British No 5], I practise with them whenever I get the chance. If I can help them a little bit, that's great.feedback

Jul 07 2017

I felt a little bit off balance. He has very good hands, moves well, takes a lot of chances, goes for his shots. Again, he can be quite up and down. I expect that to be tricky. I've never played him on the grass before.feedback

Jul 07 2017

He's always very emotional on the court. At times, it can help. Sometimes it doesn't. I don't know whether tonight it was a positive thing for him, letting his emotions out, or not.feedback

Jul 07 2017

The end of the match was tense. It was a very up-and-down match. I didn't feel like it was the best tennis at times.feedback

Jul 07 2017

You're thinking a little bit about that, as well – a change of conditions and a 20-minute break to think about things before playing a fifth set.feedback

Jul 07 2017

When you're playing a guy who has all the shots like him, it's difficult. He generates power with very short swings. It's difficult to see when he's going to hit the ball big and he was taking me out of my rhythm.feedback

Jul 07 2017

The end of the match was tense. I saved maybe four set points, tight games to break him at five-all as well. Served it out really well to finish. It was a very up-and-down match but I managed to get through. I didn't feel it was the best tennis at times.feedback

Jul 07 2017

It's difficult when you're playing a guy who has all the shots like him. He generates power with very short swings. It's difficult to see when he's going to hit the ball big. He was taking me out of the rhythm. It was getting dark. We probably would have had to come off and bring on the roof if I'd lost that fourth set. I feel OK. I didn't feel I moved as well today as I did in the first couple of matches. I've got a couple of days' break now and hopefully I can work on that and come out and play some good tennis on Monday.feedback

Jul 06 2017

Hopefully they will make some changes and avoid more situations like that.feedback

Jul 06 2017

It's a good thing when there are more Brits around. That's a really positive thing, but it doesn't change how I go into the matches. I'm used to having played deep into the second weeks at slams and there not being any Brits there. Whether I'll feel differently the middle of the second week and there are a few Brits left, and it's maybe a little bit calmer … that's possible. I've never been in that position before.feedback

Jul 06 2017

I've been getting asked, just because I said one thing about potentially not competing at the top of the game for so much longer, that I'm thinking about retiring, or how many more years I'm going to play, or am I starting to slip a little bit. So those things at different stages, they can help. Like before the French Open, when I'm in a 'terrible' place in terms of my game and I'm not playing well, having that little bit of extra motivation can help.feedback

Jul 06 2017

The start of the match will be big for Aljaz. Gilles is a good front-runner, the way he serves. Once he gets ahead he's not an easy guy to break. But if Aljaz can start well, he serves very well himself.feedback

Jul 05 2017

He's a great mover, a really, really good athlete. He's a good personality, as well. I know Dustin pretty well. We get on well with each other. We message each other from time to time.feedback

Jul 05 2017

You know, he's unpredictable. You know he's going to go for it. Also you know he hits a lot of dropshots. He can play slice. Sometimes he hits two first serves, goes for a huge second serve. It's not easy to play players like that.feedback

Jul 05 2017

There was maybe one time today when there was a fly went just as I was about to serve. O.K. I didn't know there was such a thing.feedback

Jul 05 2017

I think that is one of the reasons why he's so good at staying behind and signing everything for everybody because of the experience.feedback

Jul 04 2017

It is something I have been dealing with since I was 22 or 23 years old, off and on. It is sore, but I get through it. It is not like a horrific injury in my knee. In time, it is something I need to look after.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - London

I don't know if that's something that's come over the last couple of weeks when my hip's been sore. I've always done it, and everyone is sort of saying that I'm walking that way because of my hip. But I have no idea. I'm not in a lot of pain when I'm walking, that's for sure … I'm certainly not hurting between the points.feedback

Jul 03 2017

I'll spend some time with my physio this evening, get an ice bath, then have a light practice tomorrow. I'll work a bit on my passing shots and lobs because it will be a different match against Dustin Brown.feedback

Jul 03 2017

I was a bit nervous this morning. I hadn't been able to do as much as I would have liked in the buildup.feedback

Jul 02 2017

I'll be fine to play seven matches. Things can happen obviously. Players have got injured during tournaments. But, as I am today, I'd be delighted and have no issues getting through.feedback

Jul 02 2017

Once you get out there, I don't feel like I'm coming in trying to defend something. I'm going out there trying to win Wimbledon again. I want to try to win the competition.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - London

Sadly I won't be ready to play at The Hurlingham tomorrow, my hip is still sore and I need to rest it today, and likely tomorrow.feedback

Jun 28 2017

There are more demands on your time than other times of the year, but I do feel like the pressure and the spotlight also makes me concentrate more. I do find it stressful but I think it helps me concentrate better.feedback

Jun 20 2017

I would have liked to have done well here for a number of reasons, that being a very good one. It's unfortunate I couldn't have done better for that reason.feedback

Jun 20 2017

I have had more than enough time to get used to the conditions. I have been practising for the last seven, eight days.feedback

Jun 20 2017

This surface is a little bit more natural for me, which helps, but I have had to practice a lot this week.feedback

Jun 20 2017

I was a lot closer to where I wanted to be but still far from where I wanted to be playing, so that is why I got back onto the practice courts so soon, to work on some things.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - Olympic Games

So long as I'm fit and healthy and enjoying playing I'll do it as long as I can.feedback

Jun 17 2017

I'm older and more experienced in dealing with it. The pressure and stress that goes with it maybe doesn't affect me quite as much when I was younger.feedback

Jun 17 2017

For me, it is obviously always going to be the biggest tournament during the year. A lot of pressure comes with it as well. There's a lot of expectation during this period, so it can be a bit stressful.feedback

Jun 16 2017

It was a tough loss for me that one. It was one of the hardest matches to get over in my career. It was the fourth time I had lost in a Grand Slam final.feedback

Jun 16 2017

Everybody deals with problems differently but I think the best thing to do is to talk about it. You know you have to discuss it. It's important to talk about your problems and not bottle it up. That can make things more difficult.feedback

Jun 15 2017

It is good to try new things... at least it's trying something different. You have to give credit for doing that, because tennis has often been accused of being too traditional, not wanting to try new things.feedback

Jun 14 2017

Lots of new people have come in, changed things, and then things change again. The National Tennis Centre stopped getting used, and that was a huge part of the previous regime. There's been a lot of turnover of staff, people leaving, cuts getting made to performance. Now Scott Lloyd is coming in. I don't know what his vision will be but things will likely change again.feedback

Jun 14 2017

Since I have come through, no-one has been in that position for a long period. It's important that he and his core team ideally can stay there for eight to ten years so we can actually see what their ideas or philosophy is and see if it works.feedback

Jun 14 2017

With the amount of changes that we've had at the top of the sport, bringing in lots of people from different sports - each time you bring someone new in it takes seven or eight months to start to understand the sport better, to speak to everyone and it feels like wasted time.feedback

Jun 09 2017

I lost my way a little bit at that period.feedback

Jun 09 2017

He obviously hit some great shots in the fifth, but I didn't keep the score close enough to sort of put him under pressure.feedback

Jun 09 2017

Physically, I didn't feel my best at the end. I didn't have enough weight on my shot at the end of the match to put him under pressure.feedback

Jun 09 2017

I feel like I'm sort of in autopilot a little bit, like I know what I should be doing.feedback

Jun 09 2017

Physically, I didn't feel my best at the end. It's more like I didn't have enough weight on my shots at the end of the match to put him under any real pressure. A lot of the points he was dictating from the middle of the court, and I was sort of retrieving and allowing him to pretty much hit the shots that he wants. And against a shotmaker, someone who hits the ball as big as him, that's obviously not ideal.feedback

Jun 09 2017

It's incredible to be back to the finals here again. I'm just going to try my best. After this, I want to celebrate and then I want to recover for Sunday. I think I'll have another chance to win.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Labour Party

There was a tremendous moment of elation when the exit poll was announced because it became apparent that the campaign had achieved the most stunning turnaround in public opinion in seven weeks.feedback

Jun 07 2017

I needed to put a little bit more pace on my shots. He was dictating all the points in the first set. Once I got a better rhythm, I was able to keep him away from the baseline and that made a big difference. Stan has played fantastic this tournament. I don't think he's dropped a set. I had to play one of my best matches on clay to beat him last year.feedback

Jun 06 2017

The only chance of me living somewhere else, is if I had a bunch of friends or some of my family living elsewhere. But I wouldn't want to live somewhere not to pay any tax and not to have any of my family and friends around me. I wouldn't do that.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - Labour Party

A lot of the time when things are not going well you start overthinking things. You start wanting to try new things on the practice court, changing tensions in your racket. Whereas we just tried to hit a lot of balls, [so that I was] making myself difficult to beat. And then once you start to do that, you get through a couple of matches, you start feeling better.feedback

Jun 06 2017

Me and my wife, we are actually getting our postal votes brought out, and then they will be taken back [presumably by another member of his team]. We've watched pretty much all of the debates. We watched Sky News, and then we watched the BBC one. I've tried to keep up with it as much as possible.feedback

Jun 06 2017

Your confidence can be right down at the bottom and it can go right up to the top pretty quickly. That's been the case in this tournament.feedback

Jun 06 2017

The one thing we did when Ivan [Lendl, his coach] got here, we went right back to the basics. The drills we were doing were all very basic, but we spent a lot of time on the court. No time in the gym, really. It was just tennis, plain tennis.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - London

Each match, I feel like I played better. I have hit the ball cleaner and started to see the right shots at the right moments. Yeah, come a long way the last 10 days or so.feedback

Jun 05 2017

Kei is dangerous off both wings. Moves well.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - London

I think today was probably the best I have played overall. Each match I feel like I played better. I have hit the ball cleaner and started to hit the right shots at the right moments.feedback

Jun 04 2017

The five-set format has definitely helped that. I have maybe not been as anxious going into some of the matches, because I know there is some time to turn it around. But mentally I feel pretty good just now. I'm happy with how the match was today [against Del Potro].feedback

Jun 04 2017

I was still muttering a lot today, maybe not so much at the beginning – but I was losing at the beginning. I don't know how much of an impact it has on my tennis. What is actually relevant is not what I say the four or five seconds after a point is finished; what's relevant is the 10, 15 seconds before the next point starts, what is actually going through my head.feedback

Jun 04 2017

I wasn't playing well enough last week to win the tournament. When I was practising, I wasn't playing well enough. But things can change very quickly. You don't become a bad tennis player overnight. It can only take one or two good practices, providing you're trying to do the right things in practice. It wasn't going to be easy but I feel like I've done a good job of that. I'm playing way better than I was a week, 10 days ago.feedback

Jun 04 2017

I felt like when I was getting frustrated [on his way to defeating Del Potro 7-6, 7-5, 6-0]. I stopped myself fairly quickly and got back to playing the right way. I turned it around quickly – and I deserve credit for doing that. I know my head right now is in the right place because I am working things out on the court and that's what I care about.feedback

Jun 04 2017

If I'm thinking about the next point and what I've done wrong or what I've done right in the previous point, that's very positive. If I'm muttering for 20 seconds, then that isn't going to be a good thing because I'm not thinking about the next point. I feel like when I've used sports psychologists in the past, I've done it when I felt like I wanted to. That's the most important thing. If it is forced upon you, I don't really think that that works. You need to be the one deciding 'I want to do this.feedback

Jun 03 2017

His forehand is a big shot. That's where you need to be smart when you're playing against him. If he smokes a forehand on the run, you notice it.feedback

Jun 03 2017

If I say something ... you guys ask me what I was saying. If I say nothing, you ask me why I don't say anything. What do you want me to do? What do you want me to say? It's irrelevant. What's relevant is what happens, you know, during the points.feedback

Jun 03 2017

Yeah, I expected a very tough match. And the first set was very, very important, I think, for the rest of the match. Whoever had won that first set had big momentum. In these conditions, when it's slow and heavy, to be coming back is difficult.feedback

Jun 03 2017

I'm starting to feel better. I was really looking forward to the French Open. I had struggled the last six or seven weeks coming in.feedback

Jun 03 2017

That was obviously a brutal match we played in Rio, but also one of the most memorable that I'll have in my career regardless of what happens in the final few years of my tennis. We also played a great match in Davis Cup.feedback

Jun 03 2017

He lost to (Milos) Raonic in Delray Beach, Miami I think he lost to Roger (Federer).feedback

Jun 03 2017

It's a tough match, not an easy third round. He's, in my opinion, one of the best players in the world when he's fit and healthy. This year he's had a lot of tough draws. If you look at the matches that he's lost, he's played Novak (Djokovic) a few times.feedback

Jun 03 2017

He is, in my opinion, one of the best players in the world when he's fit and healthy.feedback

Jun 02 2017

I wasn't expecting to come in [to the French Open] and play amazing after how the build-up had gone. The most important thing is to gain confidence by getting through tough situations. I haven't been doing that the last couple of months, but I have got a couple of decent wins here and played some good stuff at times. I will get better.feedback

Jun 01 2017

He's playing well this year. It'll be a tough match, I'm sure we'll get a great crowd and it'll be a great atmosphere.feedback

Jun 01 2017

Juan Martín, in my opinion, plays better than his ranking. He's come back from injury and has had a lot of tough draws this year. He's playing well. I'm sure it'll be a great atmosphere.feedback

Jun 01 2017

Some times you think you've hit a good shot and he comes up with an unbelievable winner. When he's controlling with his forehand it's very difficult. I certainly didn't want a fifth set, but in the end there were some entertaining points, some great shots.feedback

May 31 2017

If it's two men, two women, that's great. I don't see why it should matter. It's not anyone else's business. Everyone should have the same rights.feedback

May 31 2017

I think I've played well over 800 matches on the tour, so I've seen pretty much everything. There wouldn't be too much that would surprise me or shock me. If he's tanking sets against me, I'm happy with that. For his opponent, it's a positive thing because he's basically handing a set over. Faking injury, I've no idea – I didn't see his first-round match. I saw in some of the videos he had his calf pretty heavily strapped but they played something like three hours and 45 minutes so it's obviously not too bad.feedback

May 31 2017

I've seen him play and he's unorthodox. He'll go through patches in the match where he's playing some unbelievable stuff and then he drops off a little bit and plays some strange shots which may appear like he's not interested. But that's how he plays the game, that's what's been successful for him.feedback

May 30 2017

I started to feel a little bit better as the match went on but I expected a tough match because he's played well during the clay-court season. He goes for his shots, plays very aggressive and hits the ball pretty flat, so he takes your time away.feedback

May 23 2017

There is no reason for it from my end. I'm just not playing good tennis and I need to try and work out how to turn that around. Last couple of weeks have been a struggle and a long way from where I'd like to be.feedback

May 17 2017

Movement the last two weeks has not been good.feedback

May 17 2017

Normally during matches your opponent might give you a few opportunities with some errors, and obviously you hope to create a few yourself. That certainly wasn't the case today. The only chance I really got was when he was making errors. My movement has been a big help, the last couple of years, but certainly the last couple of weeks, that's been a problem. So I need to address that. I'm just not playing well and I don't think it's to do with my ranking.feedback

May 17 2017

I just feel like I'm not playing well.feedback

May 17 2017

A lot of people think I have got no chance of doing anything at the French [Open] after the last couple of weeks, . But I do think I can still do well there.feedback

May 17 2017

It really doesn't to me. I'm not lying. That's just how – that is how I feel. I'm just not playing well, and I don't think it's to do with my ranking. I mean, the last couple of weeks, they have been tough and I haven't played well.feedback

May 15 2017 - Iraq

Imperial interventionists in both major parties have been smarting ever since. The rise of Islamic State (Isis) to control much of Syria's territory – a consequence of the civil war fostered by the Western powers, among others – seemed to offer another excuse for intervention. We have a message for the Israeli embassy, the Israeli government… every time you kill a Palestinian child, you are digging your own graves.feedback

May 15 2017

You never know how your body's going to be and your health. If that's fine, there is no reason why you can't compete at the top of the game into your early to mid-thirties. Not everyone is going to be able to do that, you don't know how good the generation coming up are going to be, if they're better than the current generation. If that's the case then I think it becomes more difficult, but I'm hoping it isn't. Fognini is one of the better clay-court players, for sure. He obviously will be highly motivated playing in Italy as well.feedback

May 15 2017

I think a lot can change in 12 months. I mean, a lot can change in a week in tennis... So I don't think that just because you do well the previous year means that you're going to have a good event the next year.feedback

May 15 2017

I have had some tough matches with him in the past, so it won't be easy. I will definitely need to play well in that one to have a chance of winning.feedback

May 15 2017

Den is exactly the kind of innovative smart technology households around the globe will utilise in the future, and Morpher is a product that the modern cyclist should own – one that has been dutifully perfected by an award-winning inventor.feedback

May 12 2017

I think there's still a lot of things that need to be worked out before it potentially happens, but I think it would be a very good thing.feedback

May 12 2017

I think that it's a really exciting idea. If it comes off, I think it would be a very, very good thing for tennis. We've exchanged messages. I think there's still a lot of things that need to be worked out before it potentially happens, but I think it would be a very good thing for tennis. Tennis needs an event like that, and I think it would be very good.feedback

May 09 2017 - Romania protests 2017

When I started to control the points more towards the end of the first set and second set, I was hitting the ball pretty clean, creating a few chances. I didn't give him any opportunities. It was good for the first match.feedback

May 03 2017

I feel much better than I did three or four weeks ago.feedback

May 03 2017

I think there's a good chance Wimbledon would give her one (a wild card) to get into qualifying. I think we've got to wait and see what happens because there might not even be a decision to be made because she might be in the main draw after Madrid or Rome, so there's a good chance she can get in by right.feedback

May 02 2017

I shake when I watch boxing. My wife was like 'Are you OK?' I had to leave the screen. I was unpacking my bag for 30 seconds, then I would come back and watch a little bit. I find it really difficult to watch, especially when I know someone that is in the fight. Like, he went out to train with Klitschko [a couple of years ago] just to understand how to run a professional training camp. If you're willing to take on board the advice of people at the top of their sports, you're going to understand quickly that the one common thing is that you have to work hard – all of the time.feedback

May 02 2017 - Olympic Games

I met him [Joshua] for the first time at the Olympics in 2012. He doesn't appear to have changed at all, which is refreshing, because there's a huge drama around every fight. When you listen to him, he does appear to be very grounded and very aware of where he wants to get to and the best way of doing that.feedback

May 02 2017

There might not even be a decision to be made, because she might be in the main draw after Madrid or Rome. [Sharapova needs around 415 rankings points from those two events to qualify.]. There's a good chance that she can gets in by right, which I'm sure is what she's hoping for and that's what Wimbledon would be hoping for.feedback

May 02 2017

I haven't felt any different or any extra pressure when I go on the court. Maybe now when you lose as No 1, it's a bigger story. It feels like each time you lose, it's treated like more of a surprise. But I've lost early in Monte Carlo before. I've lost early in Indian Wells before, I've started clay court seasons badly, so I really don't think it's to do with being No. 1. It's been a tricky year so far, and I'm hoping now that I'm through the worst of it and I can finish strong.feedback

May 02 2017

If you're willing to learn and take on board the advice of people at the top of their sports, you're going to understand quickly the one common thing is you have to work hard all of the time.feedback

May 02 2017

I think that was more like at the end of last year. All that stuff felt a bit different to me. I'm now getting asked about it every week. It's almost like trying to find a reason for why this year hasn't been as good as the end of last year but it did not have anything to do with being world No1, in my opinion.feedback

May 02 2017

It was obviously an amazing fight, really exciting. But, when you're watching tennis and people say that was an amazing comeback or hugely brave, it's not really a comparison to what they're doing.feedback

May 02 2017

You can't be doing six months going out partying and then expect to in a couple of months get yourself in great shape or turn up for the big events only.feedback

May 02 2017

I think it's true for any sport. When you listen to him speaking about his own career, he does appear to be very grounded and very aware of where he wants to get to and the best way of doing that.feedback

May 02 2017

She is obviously playing well. It looks like there's a good chance after Madrid or Rome she will definitely be inside the qualification ranking for Wimbledon. The French are going to make their decision soon [on 15 May]. It looks like it is only going to be a matter of time before she is in the main competition by right anyway, based on how she played last week. Talking to him, I get the sense he has spoken to a lot of people in a lot of different sports. He went out to train with Klitschko [in 2014] just to understand how to run a professional training camp.feedback

May 02 2017

I haven't felt different when I go on to the court, I didn't feel different when I was preparing for the Australian Open as I did in previous years. I really don't think it has been anything to do with that.feedback

Apr 28 2017

It was obviously a very tough match. It was kind of the opposite of the match we had last week, where probably today he deserved to win, he created a lot more chances, he served for the match and couldn't quite get it. Last week I had 4-0, I felt like I had all of the chances and sometimes on clay matches happen this way so I'm very happy to get through. I started coming to the net more and volleying, I felt like I started to dictate more of the points and that was a big difference.feedback

Apr 25 2017

The last time I came here I hadn't won a claycourt tournament, nor been in big finals, nor beaten some of the best players on this surface. But in the past few years I've had great wins against Rafa (Nadal) and Novak (Djokovic).feedback

Apr 25 2017

I hope to stay there for a long time, but it's hard. It took me 12 years to get there, and the physical and mental effort it took to do it last year was enormous. It's not easy to stay there, but I hope I can. It's always hard to maintain your ranking at the top of the game. A lot of the young ones are starting to play better and better, so it's going to be tough. I have great memories, not only from training and living here, but also because I played my first professional match on one of these courts and I remember it well.feedback

Apr 25 2017

The best way to adapt to new surfaces [is] playing naturally against the best players in the world.feedback

Apr 19 2017

I wouldn't start the tournament unless I felt comfortable (going full tilt), but I've only been really serving at my normal pace the last couple of days. I've been trying to build it up slowly to time it right for the beginning of the tournament... the elbow has been feeling better every day, so I am positive about that. The last couple of years I spent lots of time with my team in training and preparation, working on it. Timing my slides better. Once I did that, it's such a big part of my game and how I play that it just felt much more comfortable.feedback

Apr 19 2017

I've always enjoyed playing on clay but I never quite figured out the movement.feedback

Apr 19 2017

It would be nice to reach the final here. It's not going to be easy, the first tournament back after a while, but I've been feeling good and hopefully I can do it.feedback

Apr 19 2017

That showed in my results and obviously winning matches and tournaments on the surface builds your confidence as well. This tournament has got a lot of history. I've come here many years and I do enjoy it.feedback

Apr 17 2017

When I had the injury, I had to take two and a half weeks off serving. When I started serving again, I had to progress very slowly, but in the last couple of days I've been serving pretty much close to the speed that I would normally. My elbow has reacted well, so I feel good about it. I will have had pretty much five days before my match of serving at the right speed, so I think it will be fine. Obviously I have some work to do to push myself back up in the rankings again this year. That starts this week.feedback

Apr 14 2017

I'm hoping, if I keep progressing as I have with the elbow, to play Monte Carlo. If not, then I just need to stay patient and I'll try the following week. I'm getting there, I just have to go slowly.feedback

Apr 10 2017

I'd say that's probably the most emotional I've been after a win. It's incredible that we managed to win this competition. I didn't know that would ever be possible.feedback

Mar 13 2017

I don't know exactly why it is. In practice I normally play pretty well. I don't know if it's the conditions. I really don't know why I haven't played my best here over the years.feedback

Mar 13 2017

I have never really practised playing against serve-and-volleyers in my career but when I have come up against them, it's normally been a game style I have enjoyed playing against. It wasn't so much the serve-volley that was the problem. It was my own serve and not getting enough opportunities when he was serving.feedback

Mar 12 2017

I felt like I had the ability to (win) but to actually go through is a whole new thing. I tried to bring different tactics ... versus the other times I played him. I didn't want to give him the same look each time. I wanted to put pressure coming into the net, using my strength, which is my ability at the net and serving well.feedback

Mar 12 2017

He's always played that way, maybe he was doing it better this evening. He was maybe a bit more solid from the back, a bit more consistent from the back of the court. That allows you and gives you more opportunities to come to the net. If you're making mistakes in the first three, four shots of the rally, it's not easy to come in on the correct ball. When you're a little bit more solid, you can be patient and wait for the right shot to come in on.feedback

Mar 09 2017

The tournaments are well within their rights to give a wild card; there's nothing saying that they can't. There's no rule in place, so the tournaments are going to do what they think is best for their event. But should you get a wild card into every event when you come back? I'm not sure about that. That's something that maybe should be looked at.feedback

Mar 09 2017 - Doping

If someone's coming back from a drugs ban, whether they were intentionally cheating, whether it was for recreational drugs, whether it was for performance-enhancing drugs, it's difficult. You'd have to have rules for so many different things. So I think it's tough.feedback

Mar 04 2017

[A] sixteen-hour flight to LA, and it'll take a few days to get over there. I struggled in Indian Wells and Miami last year, and hopefully I can well play there.feedback

Mar 04 2017

I played a good match today. It's been quite a few late finishes this week and the last couple of matches I didn't start as well as I'd like. The conditions have been a difficult with some stopping and starting. But once I got going I was moving well and I finished strong.feedback

Mar 01 2017

I think you should really have to work your way back. However, the majority of tournaments are going to do what they think is best for their event. If they think having big names there is going to sell more seats, then they're going to do that. She (Sharapova) has an opportunity to try to improve her ranking up until that point and potentially not need a wild card.feedback

Feb 09 2017

The tie against Canada was tricky. I needed to have a break, I was definitely tired when I got back from Australia and my body was pretty pleased I took some time off. But away to France, after Miami, I'm into the swing of things and I've had enough rest.feedback

Jan 22 2017

Credit to him. He came up with great, great shots and played a really, really good match. You know, you always finish matches you lose with things you maybe could have done a bit better, but he played some really good stuff.feedback

Jan 22 2017

Right now I'm obviously very down because I wanted to go further in this event. I've had tough losses in my career in the past. I've come back from them. This is a tough one.feedback

Jan 22 2017

He served very well when he needed to, especially when he was behind in games. Yeah, he deserved to win because, you know, he played great when he was down, and also in the important moments.feedback

Jan 22 2017

It's the shots he was coming up with when he did come forward. I mean, he came up with some great pickups, you know, reflex volleys especially at the end of the match when it was tight.feedback

Jan 22 2017

Right now I'm down. But I've had tough losses before and come back from them.feedback

Jan 20 2017

I wasn't scheduled to play Novak today, so my job's to concentrate on Sam and to go into that match with a clear head and a good game plan and try to play well. I did that.feedback

Jan 20 2017

If you're to get to the final, then it has an effect.feedback

Jan 20 2017

Each match I think I've improved a little bit. That's a good sign. Hopefully I keep getting better.feedback

Jan 20 2017

I felt better and better as the match went on in terms of my movement. I was moving well at the end – it was very positive.feedback

Jan 13 2017

I'd say Novak Djokovic is still the biggest threat to the number one ranking. His record in Australia is incredible. He has won it six times and won a number of finals against me too so I'm expecting him to play very well there.feedback

Jan 11 2017

My first ATP World Tour match win came at Queen's in 2005, so for it to become by far the most successful tournament of my career is a great feeling. Looking at the names that have won the tournament four times - some of the best players ever - winning it five times means a lot to me.feedback

Jan 04 2017 - Qatar

He played great, great tennis and dominated large parts of the match. I told him at the net he will keep climbing the rankings if he plays tennis like that. I played pretty good but he was hitting the ball huge.feedback

Jan 03 2017

He didnt't start well and it's always difficult in the first match of the year but in the second set he played extremely well and pushed me hard.feedback

Dec 20 2016

I feel like I've been here before.feedback

Dec 20 2016

I only saw a replay of the second one when I was warming down. It looked a little bit awkward, but I am not used to doing it.feedback

Dec 18 2016

It's been a great year for British sport and I am so proud to have been a part of it.feedback

Dec 18 2016 - Christmas

Actually, I've got a bone to pick with my wife because about an hour ago she told me she'd voted for Nick Skelton. Not smart from her with Christmas coming up.feedback

Dec 13 2016

It means a lot to me to be named ITF World Champion. I have had such a memorable year.feedback

Nov 07 2016 - London

It's the top eight players and every match will be tough.feedback

Nov 06 2016

Thanks to my team and my family who were commenting back home. This has been an incredible journey for me to get to the top of the rankings, I could have not done it without all of you.feedback

Nov 05 2016

It's been really, really hard to do it, been really difficult. Obviously they are three of the best players that have ever played the game ... some of the years that they have had in that period, as well, have been, I mean, ridiculous, really. Like three slams and double slams ... So, you know, it's taken a great year to get there.feedback

Nov 05 2016

Obviously it's unfortunate the way that it happened today. But it's been many years of work to get here.feedback

Nov 05 2016

The way that it happened today was quite strange. I had always imagined, obviously, doing it on the court. Like last night, before I went to bed, I was imagining doing it, kind of thinking about it happening on the court after a match.feedback

Nov 05 2016

It's been such a difficult thing to do during my career because of how good the guys around me have been, the guys ahead of me.feedback

Nov 05 2016

Ivan has obviously helped me a lot in the periods we have spent with each other. The first time I have the best period of time in my career, and obviously since Wimbledon it's been a great run.feedback

Aug 29 2016

He's a tough, tough opponent. Big, strong guy, goes for his shots; takes a lot of risks.feedback

Aug 18 2016 - Feminism

I think Venus and Serena [Williams] have won about four each but hadn't defended a singles title before.feedback

Aug 16 2016

He's done amazing, really, to get back to playing and competing again at this level after all of the issues he had with his wrists. Mentally, I can only imagine how frustrating that must have been, to kind of keep going through the same problem and having to try and come back.feedback

Aug 15 2016

Anything could have happened. Emotionally, it was tough. Physically, it was hard ... so many ups and downs.feedback

Aug 09 2016

I played pretty well, hit the ball good from the back of the court, not many unforced errors. It was a good match.feedback

May 04 2016

My job there is to try to prepare as best I can and win a medal for my country. I think the best way to do that is to sort of prepare like you do for other events where you're in your own space.feedback

May 04 2016

It's different than what we're used to. I think that's why the players are staying outside.feedback

May 04 2016

I'm not staying in the Village. I'm staying in an apartment with the rest of the team.feedback

Jun 22 2014

I think she was someone who struggled with nerves and conquered them later in her career, which, I think when you start to coach someone, I think you can help more than someone that hasn't had those issues before. She understands the psychological part of the game maybe more than some because of that.feedback

Jun 22 2014

It's possible it doesn't work. It has nothing to do with whether she's a woman or not. That's not why it will work or not work.feedback

Jun 22 2014

It gives me something to do in the evenings. I don't have to listen to people talking about me playing at Wimbledon.feedback

Jun 08 2014

I don't really care whether some of the other male players like it or not. You know, it's silly. Everyone is entitled to have the team around them that they want. Everyone works very differently. You know, some men might not work well with a female. Some men might work well with a female coach.feedback

Jun 06 2014

Today he was hitting extremely hard, extremely heavy, returning well, and was hitting it well on the run. You can go out there with, you know, all the tactics in the world, but when he's hitting the ball like that, it's very difficult to hit the ball where you want to.feedback

Jun 06 2014

I was not able to take advantage when I was hitting with my forehand. I was losing court. I was playing with more mistakes than usual.feedback

Mar 19 2014

He's made me learn more from the losses than I did before and he's always been very honest with me and believed in me when other people maybe didn't.feedback

Mar 19 2014

I'm eternally grateful to Ivan for all his hard work over the past two years, the most successful of my career so far. As a team, we've learned a lot and it will definitely be of benefit in the future. I'll take some time with the team to consider the next steps and how we progress from here.feedback

Jul 07 2013

It's incredibly difficult to win these events. I don't think that's that well understood sometimes. It takes so much hard work, mental toughness.feedback

Jul 07 2013

For the last four or five years, it's been very tough, very stressful, a lot of pressure.feedback

Jul 07 2013

That last game will be the toughest game I'll play in my career, ever.feedback

Sep 10 2012

Well, I proved that I can win the Grand Slams. I proved that I can last four and a half hours and come out on top against one of the strongest guys physically that tennis had probably seen, especially on this surface.feedback

Sep 10 2012

Everyone's in a bit of shock, to be honest. I'm sorry if I'm not showing it as you would like.feedback

Sep 10 2012

I know more than most. I've been asked about it many times.feedback

Jul 08 2012

I'd like to congratulate Roger. He's not bad for a 30-year-old. He played a great tournament. I thought he had some struggles early on with his back and showed what fight he still has left in him.feedback

Jul 08 2012

When the roof closed, he played unbelievable tennis.feedback

Jun 03 2011

He's an unbelievable player, you know. He's one of the best players ever. He's for sure the best clay-court player ever, and all those things add up to it being a very difficult match when you play against him here.feedback

Sep 08 2008

And I said that, you know, I agreed with everyone that he's had a terrible year. Came up against, in my opinion, the best player ever to play. He definitely set the record straight today.feedback

Aug 02 2008

Federer has been at the top for so long now that it was always going to happen where he has, by his standards, a little drop-off. You know someone like Nadal, who I think is going to go down as one of the best players ever, is going to play well for a whole season.feedback
