Andy Murray shocks: “If we complain they tell us to go to work in the factory”

The US Open is upon us and we are now in the final part of this intense season. A lot has been played, perhaps too much according to some and not everyone on the circuit is very happy.

Former world number one Andy Murray gave an interview to the Tennis Majors, in whoch he has made heavy statements and has seemed almost fed up with a system that many don’t like.

Andy retired in the Masters 1000 in Toronto before the match against our Jannik Sinner (later tournament winner), did not participate in Cincinnati and some had questioned his presence in New York.Not so, Andy is ready to come back and identify himself as one of the toughest tennis players on the circuit.

Andy Murray’s words on the schedule
In the interview, Murray explained: “This calendar is not good for anyone, but every time one of us complains they tell us to go to work in the factory and that we are lucky.

And I know, we’re lucky to play tennis, but playing until 4 in the morning doesn’t help anyone, especially when everyone has to go home and only 10% of the crowd stays to see you.”Andy further told: “In other sports this doesn’t happen, on the other hand we are talking about something clearly wrong and it is only about money because those who manage the tournaments don’t care about tennis players.

They do everything purely for economic reasons.”Among the many things, Murray referred to the match against Kokkinakis at the Australian Open, which lasted a long time and ended at 4 in the morning, then he tried to give the solution: “If you want to start the evening round at 19 ,30 can be accepted but for two women’s matches.

With the men’s you can only do one match, unless you start early enough. This also applies to Wimbledon where they have to start earlier in the morning and have to eliminate the too long breaks between one match and another.”Finally Andy talked about his condition and reassured: “The last five or six days have been good, not I had problems with my serve and movement.”Murray will play against Corentin Moutet in the first round at Flushing Meadows.
