As a World No. 1, Andy Murray gets asked a myriad of questions. Yesterday, after his win over Sam Querrey in the third round at the Australian Open, the Scot was asked about his sleeping habits.
“I always sleep with the air-conditioning on,” Murray said. “I know some people hate that. They say it makes them sick, gives them a sore throat. But I always sleep with the air-conditioning on, then get under the covers. I sleep better that way.
“Sometimes I wear compression leggings if I’ve had a long match. I mean, ice bath after every match, and on the off days. But I don’t do anything different with my sleep. I just normally, during these events, try to sleep as much as possible. I try and have a nap during the day on the off days because that also helps your recovery.”
On the court, Murray was pleased with his first week of play.
“I think I played a little bit better each match,” Murray said. “There’s not been one thing I’ve been delighted with. I thought I moved much better today than I did in the first two matches, which is really positive for me. Each match I think I’ve improved a little bit. That’s a good sign. Hopefully I keep getting better.”
In the next round on Sunday, Murray will meet Grand Slam fourth round debutant Mischa Zverev.
“He played well end of last year,” Murray said of the elder Zverev. “Obviously has had a good run here. His match against Isner was really tight. I saw a little bit of that one the other day.
“He’s doing well. He plays a very different game style to most of the guys now. He’s serve-volleying, coming forward as much as possible, not with the most powerful game. He doesn’t serve, like, 220 kilometers an hour. He serves 185s, 190s, but places it well.”
