Andy Murray discusses the value of practice matches with reporters in Montreal. The new Wimbledon champion hit with Rafael Nadal there over the weekend.

“Practice is important for yourself. In practice you want to be kind of selfish, work on your own things,” Murray said. “Whether it has a bearing on the result of a practice set…I mean I beat Rafa in a practice set in Madrid 6-0 on the clay. If (he laughed) I played him in a match, there’s absolutely no chance that’s going to happen. It doesn’t have that much relevance so long as you get out of it what you need to.”
