Andy Murray Admits: Novak Djokovic is the Only Player to Have Played Better than Me

Going by practical terms, Serbia’s World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has been the most dominant player on the men’s circuit this year. An incredible 42-3 record speaks the whole lot, in a nutshell. Even his close rival Andy Murray, who himself has been in a magnificent form lately, acknowledged that he’s second to only Djokovic.

“I can’t complain about the way I played the last few months,” Murray was quoted as saying by The Telegraph. “I mean, there is one player in the world that’s played better than me. I would like to be that player, but hopefully in the future I can be.”

Murray recently went down fighting a marathon French Open semi-final to Djokovic. But, the Briton believes that losing out to the latter was no ignominy.

“He [Djokovic] has obviously had a great year, and has not lost to many players. There’s no disgrace in losing to him, but obviously if I want to win the major competitions.” Murray added on Djokovic, who has handed the former four off his seven defeats this season.

Both the players are currently busy gearing up for the Wimbledon Championships, and are being touted as the top favourites to triumph at the All England Club. While Murray warmed-up in style by emerging victorious at the Queen’s on Sunday, Djokovic is set to kick-off his preparations at the Boodles Challenge this week.
