Andy Murray has already been a busy man in New York. The reigning US Open champion has been on the media circus this week ahead of his first Grand Slam title defense.
Murray earlier visited with Charlie Rose on CBS This Morning, then yesterday was at the adidas store to meets some fans.
If things go well for Murray in New York, he can find himself in the No. 1 position on the ATP rankings, a spot he doesn’t give a lot of thought to.
“That’s something that comes with winning,” Murray said about the No. 1 ranking. “It comes with consistency but it’s not, that isn’t at the top of my list of goals.
“It would be nice, but I think in tennis that isn’t necessarily how it’s always looked. Bad players have gotten to number one in the world but haven’t won a grand slam and people say, “oh, you don’t deserve to be number one in the world because you haven’t won a slam.” The grand slams are the biggest events and they’re the ones that I prepare hard for, they’re the tournaments that I want to win. Not trying to get to number one.”
Murray opens his title defense in the first round against French lefty Michael Llodra.
