London, June 28 (ANI): British tennis star Andy Murray has said that he would like to see more of mind games in his tennis, similar to sledging involved in cricket and the psychological warfare used by former American tennis star John McEnroe.

"McEnroe said that he used it as a sort of tactic. I mean, I wish there was more of it going on. It makes it more interesting to watch," the Sunday Express quoted Murray, as saying.

"There is quite a lot of psychology in it but rarely will you see guys sledging each other across the net," he added.

Murray considers that attitude similar to McEnroe and the words used as weapons by him would liven up matches and will provide thrill to fans.

He highlights World No 1 Rafa Nadal's tactic of annoying his opponent as a perfect example of gaining the upper hand when it comes to mindset over matter.

"It's just little things. Nadal always likes to cross the net second. So he waits. Guys sometimes just wait back a bit," Murray said. (ANI)
