NEW YORK: Andy Murray knew he could not fail to win the US Open with Alex Ferguson in his corner, Daily Mirror reported.
The Manchester United manager is famous for his ‘hairdryer’ rollickings for his superstar players. But he was with Team Murray on Monday, signalling to his fellow Scot to keep calm.
“I was looking at the guys in the box because I needed to get myself pumped up in the fifth set and that helped me," said Murray.
“It was great to have someone like Sir Alex around and get to chat to him. It was pretty cool. That is always going to inspire you.
“All of the other guys spoke to him and said he was really good fun and was very happy for me.”
Ferguson said: “I’m really proud for the boy. That was a real test of a champion for me.
“I love watching tennis and it was more nerve-wracking than a Premier League match. I’m usually in control of my own situation but I wasn’t in control here.”
