‘It was a strong part of my game’ – Andy Murray highlights where he needs to improve

Andy Murray says he needs to rediscover his ruthless streak if he is to start climbing the world rankings again.

The former world number one has finally been able to enjoy playing some regular tennis again after a torrid few years with injury.

He beat Hubert Hurkacz in Vienna this week to prove his recent progress, but he knows there is still a lot more to come from him.

“I need to be a bit more clinical and ruthless when my opportunities come,” Andy Murray said.

“That was one of the things when I was right at the top, it was a strong part of my game and I need to get back to that.

“When my opportunities come, I am going to take them and be clinical.

“Finish those sets off when you get ahead and don’t think that more chances are going to come along because when you play with the top players, you don’t get loads.”

Murray will face rising young star Carlos Alcaraz in the next round, who he recetly beat at Indian Wells.
