WATCH: Murray had a more traditional media experience at the Western & Southern Open following his first-round victory.


Andy Murray faced one of the toughest media obligations of his illustrious career as he fielded questions from a group of Glasgow students.

Nearly stumped by the very first query, Murray eventually lands on Roger Federer as his dream opponent.

“He’s been injured for a long time,” explained the former world No. 1, who has endured his own physical struggles in the last five years. “He’s one of the best players to play, so I’d like to play him again.”

Murray’s most heartwarming answer came on a question about his hero.

“Probably my mom,” Murray says of mother Judy, who famously introduced the game to sons Andy and Jamie. “Great lady, works extremely hard. She’s been a really good role model for me.”

After an emotional week representing Great Britain in Davis Cup, Murray will face another tough test this week when he returns to represent Team Europe for the upcoming 2022 Laver Cup.
