London, Mar 29(ANI): British tennis player Andy Murray has admitted that he is still suffering mentally from losing the Australian Open final to Roger Federer.
Murray's confession came after he made a second round exit from the Sony Ericsson Open after losing to Mardy Fish 6-4, 6-4 in Miami. It followed his poor displays in Dubai and Indian Wells.
The 22-year-old was seeded fifth in the Australian Open and became the first British man to reach more than one Grand Slam final in 72 years, but lost to Federer in straight sets 6-3, 6-4, 7-6(11).
"No excuses - it's down to me and getting my head right. The last three tournaments haven't been good. Mentally on the court I've been really poor since Australia. That's unacceptable," The Mirror quoted Murray, as saying. (ANI)
