After his successful first-round stint at the Rennes Open, British Andy Murray decided to “play as much as possible”.

Although he ended up defeated by Stefanos Tsitsipas to five sets during his first round in the US Open, he was still satisfied at the way he recovered at his gameplay and how consistent Tsitsipas was as a fierce competitor. However, it’s also an understatement that he never liked his opponent’s long bathroom breaks.

Murray declared that will play as much as possible after he had suffered injuries from his previous matches. The three-time Grand Slam major titleholder and former World Number 1 had just recovered from hip surgery, so he was just playing in-between seasons.

As of now, he appreciates that he’s back in action and he wanted to further his goal by improving his ranking. He also mentioned that he can still play at his finest, but each time he has to go on a tournament, he has to beat the current top player in the first round. This means he’s not always taking the easy path.

During the Rennes Open, he was off to a good start by winning his first round. Richard Gasquet and Lucas Pouille were also present in the tournament, where they came back as wildcards.

Everyone in the audience might be expecting big for Murray to make his comeback during the Rennes Open. He was a big attraction that more than 2,000 audiences came up to watch him play during the first round. Currently, Murray is ranked no. 5 in the Rennes field.
