Andy Murray makes an exit from the ‘Indian Wells’


Andy Murray was beaten by World no.53 Federico Delbonis in the third round. Delbonis achieved one of his major victories by defeating the Britisher by 6-4, 4-6, 7-6(7-3). The 28 year old who had an amazing start in the third set by attaining a 4-1 lead ended up losing a tie-break later in the match.

In his post match interview, he said: “I think it’s just the conditions I have just struggled with here throughout my career.”

“I have never really felt that I played my best tennis here. I have tried and had many different preparations where I’ve got here early and spent a lot of time on the courts, and sometimes I arrive later, like this time from Davis Cup.”

“Obviously, it takes time to get used to new conditions regardless of where it is, but I have just never really found a way to get comfortable here throughout my career. It’s a shame.”

“I changed stringing my racquets like four or five pounds tighter than I was at the Davis Cup, which is significant. Really the tightest I have strung throughout the whole year would be at this event, and I still feel like I can’t really go for my shots.”

“I feel like when I do, I make mistakes. But even you look in the tie-break I missed a couple of backhands long, and then also a couple of balls in the bottom of the net. It just never quite worked out for me here.”
