Andy Murray couldnt forget Match against Reoger

Andy Murray would still not have forgotten that night of the previous season when Roger Federer simply demolished him in his own backyard during tour finals.

All Murray could do there was to win one game in two sets. It was a big embarrassment for the Scot.

He would have dearly liked to meet Federer in the Australian Open and avenge that, but, it would not happen now as the Swiss legend lost to Andreas Seppi yesterday.

Federer must have felt the same after this loss as Murray felt back there in London, that feeling of embarrassment.

Murray knows what kind of feeling that is and how much pain it gives to a sportsperson.

And, probably that’s the reason why he was pretty sympathetic to Federer when he came up for the press conference after his third round game last evening.

When asked about Federer, Murray said, “It happens in the game on a regular basis. A few matches produce unexpected results and when it’s against you, you just have to take it on the chin.”

Murray, however, might have lost the opportunity to claim revenge from Federer, but, there is another player up against him in the Round of 16 whom he would be pretty motivated to beat and that is Grigor Dimitrov.

It was Dimitrov who had cut short Murray’s journey at Wimbledon in 2014.

The 27-year old was defending his title there and was going great guns until the Round of 8 where he got to face Dimitrov.

Murray had been unbeaten in 17 consecutive matches at All England Club at that point of time, but, Dimitrov got better of him in just two sets there and showed him the exit door.

Murray would like to do something similar to the Bulgarian here at Melbourne Park.
