Murray congratulates next opponent Robert

  • Intro:

    Andy Murray says that he has had few problems with his back in his first grand slam since his surgery, and has praised the progress of lucky loser Stephane Robert, who he plays in the fourth round.


    SOUNDBITE (English) - Andy Murray
    "It's been good so far, I've recovered well so far after the matches. From time to time there's a bitof stiffness a bit of soreness. But for the most part it's been good.

    "I know him [Stephane Robert] a little bit from when I was coming through the Futures and Challengers, playing in Europe and the UK. I've seen him play a little bit then, although that was obviously quite a while ago now. It's good to see - he's obviously 33 years old. It could be easy to stop playing if you're not in the top 100 or necessarily making a great living. It does show that if you stick at it, being a professional, and when your chance comes you take it, you can do good things. It's great for him, good for tennis as well. I think Klizan was a lucky loser as well so they both took their opportunity and he's played a lot of matches here, six or seven matches already. So he'll be match-tight, that's for sure."
