Andy Murray is not concerned about having to beat Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal to get his hands on the Wimbledon title.
British number one Andy Murray insists he is not concerned about the prospect of having to beat Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal to get his hands on the Wimbledon title.
Murray made his return to action at Queen’s club last week after being forced to pull out of the French Open due to a back injury, and he looked to have fully recovered as he lifted the title at the AEGON Championship.
The world number two is eagerly awaiting the draw for the tournament at SW19 and knows that there is a real possibility, due to the way players are seeded, that he may have to defeat a trio of players who have secured 35 Grand Slam titles between them.
Nadal is currently ranked number five in the world after spending some time out with a knee injury and unless the organisers see fit to hand him a higher seeding the Spaniard could be up against US Open champion Murray in the quarter-finals.
Murray said: “I know there will be a lot of interest in the draw this year as Rafael Nadal looks like being seeded fifth, but as a player you can’t get too obsessed about the draw.
“I’d sign up to be in the quarter-finals against Rafa tomorrow if someone offered me that.
“You could say if I get through that match then the semi-final might not be as tough, but if you want to win the biggest tournaments you have to beat the best players in the world. It doesn’t really matter where they are in the draw.”
