Andy Murray reckons playing 5 set matches is not a bad thing for the male players as it gives them a little bit of extra time to be able to get back into the contest if they haven’t necessarily got off to a great start.
There have been some talks regarding the need of the male fixtures to be decreased to 3 sets as well.
But, Murray is not voicing in favour of that. He is cool with Slam matches to be of 5 sets.
According to Murray, so many times in the past, the good players have got trailed by two sets and then, they have come back to turn it around for themselves. Had it been about 3 sets only, it would not have been possible for them to do so.
In an interview, Murray was quoted as saying, “In three sets, you’ve got to have a good start. If you don’t have that and you get behind your opponent, it becomes very hard. But, that’s not the case in Slams. You have got ample time there to make a comeback from any sort of situation.”
Murray is going to get married in a few days’ time. Read more »
