    'NOT EASY GOING BACK OUT THERE'

    Andy Murray has insisted that it wasn't easy mentally in the fourth set against Nikoloz Basilashvili.

    He said: "I did well to win in the fourth set because it was mentally not easy going back out there.

    "I went and had a shower, went to the toilet – just for a number one.

    "I was just disappointed I had lost the third and I had to remember what I had been doing well to get into that position.

    "I brought back some of the drop-shots and served a bit better than I had in the third set.”

    THE COMEBACK

    He was done, finished.

    Videos played showing his career at some events, paying homage to a great player on the way out.

    He was won twice on the tour this year, all with a metal hip.

    Today, he wins at Wimbledon.

    MURRAY REACTS

    An emotional Andy Murray bites back at critics who keep asking if he'll be retiring.

    And he bit back well.

    I keep getting asked ‘will this be my last Wimbledon’ or sometimes my last match.
    I don’t know. I don’t know why I keep getting asked. I want to keep playing.
    I can compete at the highest level. He’s ranked 28th in the world and I’ve hardly played.
    And I have beaten him.

    I went in and had a shower. I went to the toilet. Just a number one!
    Then I was disappointed I lost the third.

    MURRAY REACTS

    Andy Murray gives his immediate reaction after winning in four sets

    It’s amazing to be back here and playing again on centre court.
    It was a brilliant atmosphere and I’ve missed playing in front of the fans.
    It was a great reception when I came out and they were great throughout, so thanks for that.
    I did well to win the fourth set in the end as that was mentally not easy after losing the third.
