Murray says playing 'smart tennis' reason behind winning maiden Grand Slam

London, Wed, 03 Oct 2012 ANI

London, Oct 3(ANI): British tennis star Andy Murray has claimed playing smart tennis rather than his best tennis was the major reason behind winning elusive Grand Slam at the US Open.

Murray also admitted that he had yet to come fully to terms with his achievement, but has had time to consider what made the difference during his glorious summer.

"I thought I played really well at the Olympics. At the US Open I didn't feel like I played that well. Obviously the conditions didn't help. But I played smart tennis," the Independent quoted Murray, as saying.

"It wasn't always easy to serve well or to hit the ball cleanly from the back of the court, but I found a way to win the matches, even when I wasn't playing well. And that's something that was so important," he added.

"Sometimes in the past when I've been playing well I would win a lot of matches and then when I wasn't playing well I would get down on myself and not figure out exactly how to win all of the time, especially in the Slams," he said.

Murray added: "I think I did a very good job of that at the US Open because I didn't feel like I played unbelievable tennis all the time, although the conditions didn't help. I played smart the whole time and was able to stay focused."

"I was using the time I had at the change of ends and the time between points better. I'd obviously managed to turn the match around against Cilic. That could easily have gone the other way. That was a big turning point," he concluded. (ANI)
