Murray uses boxing techniques to overpower opponents on court
New York, Aug 29(ANI): British tennis ace Andy Murray has revealed taking the help of boxing techniques during training to knock out his rivals on court.
Murray, who won the Olympic gold medal in men singles at the recently concluded London Games after beating world number one Roger Federer, said there are similarities in both the sports.
"There are parallels. You have to find weaknesses in your opponent. You're trying to figure out ways of hurting them," The Daily Star quoted Murray, as saying in New York, where he is participating in the U.S.Open.
"In boxing, they have a long time to prepare, but they are very similar," he added.
Murray is hoping the practicing boxing techniques might help him conquer the elusive Grand Slam at the US Open.
