Andy Murray’s Wimbledon 2022 campaign was brought to an end after a defeat to John Isner in the second round of the tournament. The British tennis player looked in all sorts of trouble against a ruthless Isner who took him down 6-4, 7-6 (7-4), 6-7 (3-7), 6-4 in 3 hours and 23 minutes. The American made Murray look helpless as he crashed an extraordinary 36 aces and 80 winners to secure a deserved win.

As the 35-year-old crashed out in the second round itself, he was asked whether the fans will get to see more of him at the All-England Championships. Murray did not give a clear answer but said that if his body permits, he will surely play next year. He added that it’s not easy for him to keep his body in an optimal state to compete in such a big tournament.

“It depends on how I am physical. That’s… physically I feel good then, we’ll try to keep playing. But it’s extremely difficult with the… problems I’ve had with my body in the last few years, to make long-term predictions about, how I’m going to be, even in a few weeks’ time, never mind in a year’s time. So if, physically I’m in a good place then yeah, I will continue to play. But it’s not easy to keep, my body, in optimal condition to compete at the highest level,” the 35-year-old said in his post-match press conference.

I could have had a good run here: Murray

The Briton also talked about his loss to Isner and said that he could have won the game has he avoided a few mistakes. Murray rued dropping the serve in the fourth set and reckoned that was the moment he was thrown out of the competition. “I could have had a good run here. It’s one of those matches that, had I got through, who knows what would have happened,” said the 35-year-old.

“He (Isner) was serving really well, as you would expect. And then in the fourth set, (I) probably lost a game on my serve that I shouldn’t have. Up 30-love… missed one of two shots in that game that… especially the one on the deuce point, I had a backhand that, should never really have missed. And then, when I had my opportunities, he served extremely well,” Murray added.
