Andy Murray has apologised to tennis fans for the usual of tennis during his match against Sam Querrey in the primary round of the Hall of Fame Open in Newport, Rhode Island, on Tuesday.
The Briton defeated his American counterpart in straight sets as he returned to the court for the primary time since being knocked out of Wimbledon by John Isner within the second round.
However the 35-year-old, who last played within the tournament back in 2006 as a 19-year-old, admitted the conditions on court had an impact on the players.
“It’s amazing to be back here playing on this court again after I feel 16 years,” he said in his post-match interview. “Lots has happened in that point – 4 kids, married and all that stuff.
“It was really awful conditions to play tennis in, to play well. So breezy and really difficult so I’m sorry that perhaps the tennis wasn’t that much fun to look at but we’re doing the perfect we are able to given the conditions.”
