Blisters not to blame for defeat: Murray

  • Andy Murray insisted that his battered feet had no bearing on his defeat to Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open final but called on event organizers to level the playing field. World No. 3 Murray took the 1st set, but Djokovic fought back to win 4 sets to wrap up an Australian Open hat-trick. Murray began to flag in the 3rd and 4th sets and called on the trainer to treat blisters. Murray did not cite fatigue as an excuse, but suggested that the scheduling needed looking at as to ensure there is no advantage to one side of the draw. When asked about his damaged feet, Murray said, "That had no bearing on the result, it just hurts a bit when you run. I very rarely get blisters. But 90 per cent of the players will have played this tournament with some sort of blister or problem."
