Tennis star Andy Murray has revealed an excerpt from his new book ‘Seventy-Seven: My Road to Wimbledon Glory’ to his Facebook fans ahead of its official release tomorrow (7 November).
Posting on his page Murray wrote: “Hi everyone, I wanted to share with all of my Facebook fans an exclusive part of my book before it comes out tomorrow. It's been an incredible journey and I am excited to share it all with you, enjoy the read.”
The passage, which charts Murray’s Olympic Gold win at the London 2012 Games last year, reveals how Murray felt taking on Roger Federer again so soon after losing out to him at Wimbledon earlier that year.
He revealed: “It was being billed as a revenge mission, but going into matches trying to get revenge for something that’s happened in the past actually doesn’t help at all. I always try to focus on the task in hand and not dwell on what I should or might have done before.”
Despite winning his first Grand Slam later in the year at the US Open Murray writes: “Out of all of the things that happened to me in 2012, winning the gold medal was the proudest moment.”
Currently on Amazon the book is listed as the ‘#1 Best Seller in Tennis Biographies’.
