Beating Federer similar to winning Masters’ Cup: Murray

Shanghai, Nov. 15 : Britain’s Andy Murray has said that his triumph over Swiss Roger Federer in the quarter-finals of the Masters’ Cup here is as good as winning the title.

Murray who beat Federer 4-6 7-6 7-5 in a minute over three hours, now marches into the semi-finals of the Masters Cup.

Having beaten the Swiss superstar for the third time this year Murray was quoted by The Sun as saying: “It was a great match, probably one of the best I’ve ever been involved in. A win against Federer in a match like that is similar to winning the Masters Cup itself.”

“Psychologically, a win like that is going to be huge for me next time I play him — especially in big matches,” he added.

London, Nov. 13: Britain’s Andy Murray has said that he aims to dump Roger Federer out of the Masters Cup in Shanghai tomorrow to get his hands on a one million pound paycheck.

The Brit faces the Swiss star in the final group game with a semi-final spot already in the bag.

Federer will be out if he loses and Murray has admitted: “I’d like to knock him out of the competition.”

Murray, 21, was quoted by The Sun as saying: “I’ll try and beat Federer. Ideally I’d like to knock him out. I’d rather not have to play him twice in one week. Any time you play Federer, probably the greatest player of all time, it is disrespectful if you don’t try to win.”
