What’s been said?

Murray believed that he was in the ‘driving seat’ for most of his first-round match with Etcheverry.

‘I really felt like I was in the driving seat for much of the match,’ Murray told BBC Sport after his match with Etcheverry.

‘I was creating lots of opportunities but I just wasn’t able to capitalise. I made some poor decisions at times, but in the end did really well to get through that.’

‘I’m not going to keep winning every three-set match that I play, but it’s been an amazing start to the year,’ Murray continued.

‘It was still a good effort to turn that around as the first set was extremely long and I was thinking ‘here we go again’. This is a place where I haven’t always played my best tennis so I was really happy that I managed to turn that around.’
