    Andy Murray is proud of his performance at the 2017 French Open, despite crashing out to Stan Wawrinka in the semi-finals.

    The world No. 1 was struggling for both fitness and form in the build-up to Roland Garros, with many hinting an early exit could be on the cards.

    But Murray battled through to the last-four and was just a tiebreak away from the final.

    And after his 6-7 (6-8) 6-3 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-1 defeat to the Swiss, Murray reflected on his tournament as a whole and admitted he was largely pleased, although his lack of match practice in the build-up probably cost him.

    ‘I’m proud of the tournament I had,’ he said after the defeat.

    ‘I did well considering. You know, I was one tiebreak away from getting to the final when I came in really struggling. So I have to be proud of that.

    ‘Maybe the lack of matches hurt me a little bit in the end today. You know, that was a very high intensity match. A lot of long points.

    ‘When you haven’t been playing loads, you know, over four, four-and-a-half hours, that can catch up to you a little bit.

    ‘I only have myself to blame for that, for the way I played coming into the tournament.

    ‘I turned my form around, really, really well and ended up having a good tournament, all things considered.’
