It was just as bad for the Brits on Center Court yesterday as it was before the Murray-Isner game. Emma Raducanu also crashed in straight sets while her poor form continues. Murray had to dig deep to win the third set and his celebrations were a testament to that, but he failed to keep winning when Isner ended the match in the next set.

With Isner and his service being a known challenge, the American also had better movements, making it difficult for Murray. Comes fresh from one injury in StuttgartMurray’s chances were down and he was facing such an experienced turf specialist Isner in the second round was always a big task.

“After the US Open last year I was pretty angry. Probably more than I am right now. I’m feeling disappointed right now. Of course I wanted to do well here. I love playing Wimbledon, a surface where I feel like I can still compete with the best. It definitely, definitely hurts. When I had my chances he served very well and didn’t give me many chances. When I got them, I didn’t get many looks at second serves at key moments of his serve. I didn’t feel undercooked coming into the tournament.

I felt like I was in a good place physically. I’ve played enough matches. I was ready to do well here. But the margins are okay at the highest level. I don’t think I served the first few sentences well. He served very well as one would expect. Then in the fourth set I probably lost a game on my serve, which I shouldn’t have, 30-0. I missed a shot or two in that game, especially the one on the deuce point, I had a backhand that actually should never have missed.” said Murray in his press conference.

Despite playing in the Grand Slams, Murray has not reached week two since 2018. While he was injured and then made a comeback, his exits are certainly down to playing the seeds in the early rounds due to his own low ranking. Murray entered the top 100 for the for the first time after 45 months in February 2022 and was in the top 50 for a short time and he continues to try to break into the top 30 in order to secure a seat at the Grand Slams.

“I really want to try to improve my ranking to a level where I get put in Slams. That was a goal of mine after Miami. I’ve talked a lot about this with my team and it’s something I want to try and put myself in a position that hopefully will come US Open. If not the US Open, then I’ll go to the Australian Open next year, where I’m seeded again. Of course, that means I have to be out there competing and winning games because, like I said, it makes things harder.

“I came into Wimbledon feeling like I could have a deep run. Of course, when you’re up against top guys right at the start of the event, things get a little harder. Those are my goals until the US Open. I could have walked well here. One of the reasons improving your ranking and trying to get seeded is important, avoid playing against top players and dangerous guys so early in tournaments. added Murray.
