MDP Live - Andy Murray has won 46 titles, is ranked number 1 in the world, and has many achievements in his career to date.
But the British tennis player is still ambitious to achieve more. This was seen during the Sydney International trophy acceptance ceremony for the 2022 season after his defeat in the final against Aslan Karatsev.
"What a great atmosphere to play, thank you, it was amazing. I really miss playing in front of the crowd and games like that. "Unfortunately, the result wasn't what I wanted, but I'm going to do my best to come back and have nights like this again."
The 34-year-old has played the biggest stage in tennis on many occasions. However, he still wants to return to such big games. And the Briton made sure that he not only wanted to play in those moments, but managed to win them.
The world number 135, who is still working hard to return to form after undergoing hip surgery, has stated on many occasions that one of her biggest goals is to bag 50 titles. He has currently claimed 46 titles.
"I've set my short-term goals pretty clearly and the things I still want to try and achieve," added Murray.
"I want to try and win tournaments again. That's one of the reasons why I'm still playing, because I believe I can still do it."
Russia's Karatsev has been too tough for the former world number 1 in this season's Sydney International final, including securing all five break points he has faced. This match is the first meeting between the two players.
The achievement at the Sydney International is a positive effort for the British tennis player who does not make it to the semifinals of the 2021 ATP tournament.
Now, the three-time Grand Slam winner will head to Melbourne where he will face Nikoloz Basilashvili in the first round of the Australian Open.
The British tennis player is not doing this all for herself. In the trophy presentation ceremony, he emphasized this.
“I want to thank my family back home. I don't know if you all watched, but I miss you guys," Murray said.
