Andy Murray admits having gone away from his natural game after Cologne loss

Andy Murray has conceded he needs to return to playing his own game after he lost in straight sets in the first round of the bett1HULKS Indoors ATP event in Cologne.

The former world number one fell to veteran Spaniard Fernando Verdasco in Germany, which followed him tumbling out of the French Open with a straight-sets first-round loss as he battles back from hip surgery.

“I need to get back to playing my game on the court, I’ve kind of gone away from that a little bit,” he said.

“I need to practice, I need to play matches and physically I need to get better,” he said.

“Some things I did a little bit better but overall it was not that much better than that match (against Stan Wawrinka in Paris).

“It’s a surface that I’m a little bit more comfortable on, so that probably helped me. But in terms of my game, it was not much better.”

Murray vowed to have “a long, hard think” after suffering the joint worst grand slam defeat of his career to Wawrinka in the first round at Roland Garros, where he won just six games.

He reached the second round of the US Open in September but remains outside the world’s top 100.
