World number three, Andy Murray, has shared that the blue Plexicushion surface of Australian Open’s Rod Laver Arena suits him and he is happy that players have changed their mind to boycott next year’s event at the Melbourne Park.
The British number one said in a recent interview, ”I actually prefer the court at the Australian Open, the balls as well. I think that surface is probably a little bit better for me. I feel I played some of my best tennis there over the last few years. I love the centre court there. I like the conditions on it. Yeah, it’s a good court for me.”
However, Murray revealed that he never wanted to protest by staying away from the Australian Open, as he loves to play this event.
The 25-year-old has a very good record at the Australian Open, having lost to Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic in the 2010 and 2011 finals respectively. This year, Murray lost a hard fought battle at the hands of Novak Djokovic in five sets in the semis.
After losing in four straight Grand slam finals, Murray became the first player from his country to capture a Major, when he defeated Djokovic in the final of this year’s US Open.
Plexipave UK, a leading tennis court construction company, provide this surface for the UK tennis market.
