Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic are poised to be top rivals in 2017. Therefore, it’s normal that they take very seriously what happens during their matches.
This season, Novak Djokovic was the first to draw blood when he defeated Andy in the Doha final 6-3 5-7 6-4 to clinch his first title of the season. Andy was obviously disappointed with the result, but he didn’t hide the fact that he was happy about some improvements in his tennis, and he is aware of what he should do in the future.
What worked well when I lost to Djokovic. MURRAY
During a recent interview with The Times, Andy commented
“I think I just need to work on my offensive game 'Against Novak I was actually pretty good when I started moving forward, dictated quite a few points, but not as much as I would have liked.
I was maybe a little bit too far behind the baseline at times. There are not loads that I need to work on; I feel like I'm playing good tennis, moving well. A few specifics and I will be all right.”
Andy is currently fine-tuning his preparation in Melbourne where he will try to win his first Australian Open after being the runner-up for five times. Being more aggressive might be the key. Lendl is working on it.
