Here’s What Andy Murray Thinks Is The Best Part Of Being A Tennis Player

Following a third quick match in his first Wimbledon title defense, Andy Murray was asked what’s the best thing about being a tennis player. The competition? The camaraderie? The fame? The fortune?

“I love the traveling,” Murray revealed. “That’s the thing I like the most. I don’t like sort of the flying and the airports and stuff. But once you get to different places, like this year I went to Acapulco, it was the first time I’d been there. I didn’t know what to expect. I absolutely loved it. It was a great, great place to go.

“I think for a lot of tennis players, that’s the nicest thing we get to do from a young age, get to travel the world. I wouldn’t have got to do that in many other jobs, if you can call it that, what we do.

“And, yeah, I love that. I love going to new places. I love going to different cities, different countries. That’s the best part about being a tennis player.

“I’d like to go to the Maldives. I’d like to go to Hawaii. They’re quite far. Hawaii in particular is a long trip to get there if you want to go there on holiday.”

Murray hasn’t lost a set and lost only 9 games in his last two matches. He’ll now face big serving Kevin Anderson on Monday in the fourth round.

“It will be a tough match,” Murray said. “He’s a big guy with a big game. He’s played some very good tennis this year. Probably been his best year on the tour so far in terms of consistency. It will be tough. He serves well, so I’ll need to have my return game on. Play a tough match to beat him. But he’s playing very well this year.”

jane Says:

this makes sense to me; these guys are so young and yet they get to go to all corners of the globe for “work” (if you can call it that, as andy says). pretty darn awesome.

Michael Says:

Yes Tennis being a Global sport, players get this opportunity to travel a lot and get to know places. This is an opportunity not available to many.

Klaas Says:

Most of the players just hang around the practice courts and bland international-style hotels. I hope Murray is a bit more adventurous.
