"I'd like to thank my team" - says Murray after loss in Sydney Final
It's been a long journey for Andy Murray since the last time he played in a final to yesterday. The British player had a brilliant week in Sydney reaching the final but ultimately lost out to Aslan Karatsev who had an even better week. Murray congratulated his opponent after the match:
"I'd like to congratulate Aslan [Karatsev] on a fantastic week. I know he arrived here late in Australia as he was recovering from Covid, so even more impressive to come back straight away and play at that level."
He then paid tribute to his team for sticking with him throughout this process:
"I'd like to thank my team for all of their help this week. First time back in the finals for three years, it's been a long road to get back here but I couldn't have done it without your help so thank you. I'd also like to thank my family back home, I don't know if you were watching but I miss you all."
Murray now turns his attention to the Australian Open where he will play for the first time in 3 years.
