Andy Murray: Have I ever smashed my racket?

25th May 2008

Last August, before the US Open, he even underwent a few anger-management sessions with sports psychologist Roberto Forzoni, an experience he has not seen the need to repeat, but he is aware that his feistiness is definitely an issue and admitted: “I was ranked No 8 in the world when I was 19 years old and there’s only been about 20 teenagers who have done that so if my temper was such a problem that I couldn’t play when I was getting angry then I don’t think I could have got to that level. It can be better but I don’t think that it’s been such a huge problem that it’s affected my game.”
