"I'll go for 47 tomorrow" says an excited Murray about playing the Sydney final

Andy Murray is back in a final as the British player will contest the Sydney Tennis Classic final tomorrow hoping for title number 47.

To be in the final he had to go through Reilly Opelka and it was an interense amtch that feauted three sets. Murray was able to break down Opelka nad his serving as the match went on and after the matche he spoke to the media. He admitted to having a great week with hopes of making it even better:

“It’s already been a great week for me, big progress from anything I’ve done in the last year or so, to string four matches together like this and against top players in Basilashvili and Opelka. I’ll go for 47 tomorrow. It’s been a good week, I’ve played better with each match, so hopefully I’ll step it up again tomorrow.”

A big part of his victory was the approach to returning. Murray admitted that there is not much of adjustment because you can't prepare for it:

“You can’t really prepare for it, to be honest, you just have to try and adjust while you’re out there. I chose to block quite a few returns, to get lots in play today, which worked pretty well. It’s tough but returning has always been one of the strongest parts of my game, and I used it well today.”
