"It's frustrating because I was in a good place" - Murray after Wimbledon exit
Murray was showing a very high level on grass before Wimbledon but an abdominal injury derailed his preparations for the event forcing him to take some time off. Ultimately it proved costly because Murray was not able to use some of the chances that Isner gave him. There weren't many but there were some.
“It’s frustrating because I was in a good place with my game. The injury didn’t help. The positive is that physically I was fine during the matches (at Wimbledon). I just couldn’t quite get the win today.”
Murray further added:
"This year my game was certainly in a better place (than 2021). Physically I felt good, barring the sort of 10 days post-Stuttgart. I could have had a good run (at Wimbledon). One of the reasons why improving your ranking and trying to get seeded is important, avoid playing top players and dangerous guys like that early in tournaments. Who knows what would have happened. Yeah, it’s frustrating for different reasons."
