After the defeat in the first round of the Australian Open by Tomas Martin Etcheverry, Andy Murray expressed his disappointment. The experienced Briton expected much more from himself and thought that he could really win. At the press conference after the defeat, Murray emphasized that this will probably be his last appearance at the Australian Open. During the match, a lot of things went through the mind of Murray, who already had great performances at the Australian Open in his career. He believes that he could have done more in every way.

“Yeah, there's a definite possibility that will be the last time I play here.
Whilst you’re playing the match you're obviously trying to control your emotions, focus on the points and everything and then when you're one point away from the end it's like, ‘I can't believe it's over like so quickly and like this.’
Walking off the court [I was] like ‘I wish I involved the crowd more’, and just disappointed with the way that I played and all that stuff. A tough, tough way to finish.
"- Murray said, as quoted by Eurosport

Andy Murray on his performances

Andy Murray said he didn't play well in his last game, and it felt kind of boring. Even though there were a lot of people cheering for him, usually, he talks to them and gets everyone excited. But this time, he couldn't get into the game, and it just didn't feel energetic. He wished he could have done better, especially with such a supportive crowd. 

Andy Murray emphasized that he's not happy with how he played in his last game. He thinks if he keeps playing like that, he won't win many matches. He knows that practice is different from real games, and even though he has played really well in practice recently, it's frustrating that he can't bring that level to the actual matches.  It is clear that the Briton, after everything he has experienced in his career, can hardly be the same player. The very fact that he is here again and that he has a passion for tennis, is great.
