Australian Open LIVE: Medvedev explains lie he told as star branded ‘trash’ eyes final | Tennis | Sport

Andy Murray was back on the practice courts the day after his Australian Open defeat by Tomas Martin Etcheverry.

Laura Robson pointed out that it was positive to see Murray preparing for his next tournament, which is scheduled for Montpellier, so soon after a crushing first-round Grand Slam defeat.

Robson told Sky Sports: “I feel like he knows he can play a lot better than that, which is probably the most frustrating thing.

“You look at how he played in Brisbane where he lost to Dimitrov, who ended up winning the tournament, it really was a great match and that’s kind of how I thought he was going to play the first round here.

“But he just couldn’t quite find it, so fingers crossed he gets it back.

“I know he’s down to play in Montpellier. I’m not sure if he’ll play in the end, but the good thing was the day after the match, he was on the practice courts at Melbourne Park striking a few balls before his flight home. Just the fact that he wanted to get out there was a really good sign.”
