In 2022, Andy Murray has a positive record, but insufficient according to him. With 26 wins and 19 losses, the Briton has had a decent season, especially considering his injuries and age, but he wants more. Still as determined as ever, the former world number one would like to fight again for big titles and be able to compete with the best in the world. And while he finished the year in the Top 50, at No. 49 in the ATP rankings, Murray was left wanting more. In a podcast with the ATP, the 35-year-old talked about his progress and the year 2023.
“When you’ve been at the top and you’ve gotten to No. 1, that’s always where your benchmark is. So in that regard it was pretty average, but at the beginning of the year I was #135 in the world and now I’m in the 50s. That’s a big jump, so it was okay this year. For a lot of players, that would be really positive. Me, I would have liked to do better, and I don’t feel like I played my best tennis this year. I hope I can continue to improve next year. Like this year I’ve improved a lot from where I was, if things obviously start to go backwards, if the performances don’t improve or physically I’m struggling, then I’ll have to look at it. But I’m still going in the right direction, I have plans to have a good year next year.”
