After Exiting The European Open, Andy Murray Acknowledges, “My Attitude Was Poor”

Posted by

Andy Murray said that “my attitude was poor” after losing in straight sets to Diego Schwartzman at the European Open in Antwerp. Murray was unable to capitalize on an early lead as Schwartzman won 6-4, 7-6 (6) in two hours and 13 minutes, returning to the site of his previous singles title in 2019.

On Tuesday, the Argentinian was given a first-round bye, while Murray battled his way into the last 16 with an epic triumph over Frances Tiafoe that lasted nearly four hours.

“I didn’t make as many good decisions as I would have liked in the second set dealing with adversity,” Murray said. “Mentally I was poor and my attitude was poor on the court.

Murray broke Schwartzman in the first game to take a 3-1 lead, and his serve was not broken again until the Argentinian fought back in the seventh game. Murray survived a second break point with an ace, but Schwartzman broke, leveled, and then raced ahead for the third time. Schwartzman closed up the first set by winning his fifth game in a row.
