Andy Murray: Leaner, quicker and a new identity to his game

Andy Murray: Leaner, quicker and a new identity to his game
andy-murray-leaner-quicker-and-a-new-identity-to-his-game


Andy Murray looked a different person to the Richard Sherman Super Bowl Jersey shattered athlete who left New York last September, or the embarrassed figure at the O2 Arena in November. A fourth Australian Open final defeat left him disappointed but hardly destroyed as he wound down his media duties at Melbourne Park. While spectators and experts pondered the mental lapse that saw him lose 12 of the last 13 games to Novak Djokovic, the British number one had taken out his frustration on his racquet. He had already moved on. "Success is being happy," said the 27-year-old. "I would rather lose in the final and be happy than win the final and go home and be miserable. "I want to try to enjoy my tennis more right now than I probably did at the beginning of my career and everything that goes into it." The final hour left a sour taste but two weeks in Melbourne put a difficult 2014 firmly behind him and made a statement about his form, his fitness and his coach. Martina Navratilova: "I think Andy has slimmed down a little bit, he seems to be a bit leaner to me. He's moving really well but still has all the power." When Murray posted a bleary-eyed picture from a Julian Edelman Super Bowl Jersey London hospital bed two months after his Wimbledon win in 2013, it marked a key moment in his career. The procedure, thought to have targeted a spinal disc, had been successful but a hard road lay ahead, and he might only now be convinced that he is fully over it. "From time to time, I still feel the back," Murray said at Queen's Club last June, and there were cramping episodes at the French Open and the US Open, where he lost to Djokovic in four sets after wilting in the latter stages. "Ideally you should be able to go longer than this without feeling the effects," said former world number one John McEnroe, in New York. Murray said: "I thought physically he was better than me in the end. I was a little bit disappointed, to be honest, because I did train very hard." The departure of Dani Vallverdu, his childhood friend and coach of five years, grabbed most of the headlines when a Team Murray reshuffle was announced in November, but long-time fitness trainer Jez Green also departed. Matt Little took on sole responsibility, having previously shared the role with Green, and a new approach was taken - speed work. Murray and his team decided to focus on his traditional strength, footwork and agility, heading to the Florida beach rather than the track in the off-season, and he began 2015 saying: "I have never moved as well at the beginning of a year." His defence was back to its best in Melbourne and drove the likes of Grigor Dimitrov and Tomas Berdych to distraction, and five months on from New York, defeat by Djokovic was not down to conditioning. Murray: "The reason I lost that match was not http://www.footballcowboysprostore.com/Kyle-Wilber-Jersey a physical thing. I don't believe that. I know how I feel just now and how I felt after the match with Novak at the US Open. It appeared that he was the one that was struggling more physically than me."
