What a turnaround for Andy Murray. Since getting married a month ago, Murray has not only gone undefeated (9-0) but he now leads the ATP in clay titles for 2015 with two!

Murray, who had never even made a clay final before his wedding day, has reached two this past week winning both in Munich and then yesterday in an emphatic win over Rafael Nadal in Madrid.
“I don’t know,” Murray said about marriage adding a spark to his game. “I think people don’t always appreciate that sports people have, there is another part of our lives that is very important as well to performance. If you’re happy away from the court and you’re sort of your private and personal life is good, that will help everything.
Helps your mindset; helps the way that you train; everything.
“So that is obviously for me is very good right now. That obviously helps performance, but also you still need to put in the hard work as well, which I did in Barcelona and Munich before here. I’ve been rewarded for that.”
Murray now heads to Rome trying to stay perfect.
“Obviously to win a Masters Series on clay for me is a step in the right direction,” Murray said. “It’s something I had never done before. So that’s good progress there. Yeah, obviously to win against Rafa on clay in a final in Spain is extremely difficult thing to do, and I’m proud that I’ve managed to do that.”
