Murray says Wimbledon victory brought 'relief' rather than 'joy'

Edinburgh, Aug 25 (ANI): Wimbledon Champion Andy Murray has said that it was more enjoyable to come back to Flushing Meadows as the defending champion then winning the US Open because at that time he was more relieved than happy.

According to The Scotsman, Murray expressed that while winning Wimbledon too, it was not the same as the crowd was expecting it to be because he had been involved in a bitter final last year.

The champion player said that he feels a lot more confident than before but as the tournament rolls on, he would start to get nervous, adding that it was different since it was the first time he was playing in a slam as defending champion.

Murray said that the week before the tournament had been a lot busier than before and he had to make sure he was not using up too much energy. (ANI)
