Andy Murray: Refusing to get carried away

Sky Bet

Andy Murray is taking nothing for granted despite the early exits of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at Wimbledon.

Murray had been in the same half of the draw as the trio, however Nadal was a surprise first-round casualty, while Sergiy Stakhovsky recorded a shock win over Federer and Tsonga withdrew injured against Ernests Gulbis.

That means the highest ranked player Murray could now face before a possible final appearance is 15th seed Nicolas Almagro.

However Murray, who will play 32nd seed Tommy Robredo in the third round, is refusing to look too far ahead.

The 26-year-old said: "Upsets happen every single day. You can't take any matches for granted. People want to do that often and just write people through to finals or semi-finals or whatever.


"But it doesn't work that way. You need to be ready for every match. That's just the way that sport is.

"Everybody was so obsessed with how the draw was before the tournament started. Now everybody wants to change their views on it because a few guys have lost.

"There's top players still left in the tournament, and there's a lot of young guys as well coming through, guys like Gulbis, (Jerzy) Janowicz. Those sort of players are starting to break through and play more consistently.

"I'll just concentrate on my next match. I'm playing a tough player, a very experienced guy. I'll worry about that match."
