ATP World No. 1 Andy Murray has admitted that he felt ''lost'' and a ''little bit flat'' after capturing his maiden Wimbledon title back in 2013. The 30-year-old was pressured since the early days of his career to bring Great Britain a Wimbledon men's singles title. He became the first British player in 77 years to do so as the previous champion was Fred Perry, who went all the way long ago in 1936.

Meanwhile, Murray became a two-time Wimbledon champion, having won the tournament last year after beating Canadia's Milos Raonic in the final.

''When I won Wimbledon I felt a little bit like that for a few months afterward because it had been spoken about for years, like if I would ever win Wimbledon and when am I going to win Wimbledon,'' Murray said, per The Scottish Sun.

''I got asked a lot of questions about Fred Perry; 'it’s been 74 years, 75 years'… I was getting asked all of the time about it. And then I won it and it was like I didn’t know where I was going afterward. It was like ‘what do I do now?’ I felt like that was what my purpose was really, in tennis. It was such a big deal, such a huge story, that I didn’t know exactly where I was going to go — what’s next.''

An enormous relief

Briton Andy Murray just couldn't get over the edge at Wimbledon during his early career though he was close every time. The ATP world No. 1 lost in the semi-final stage at the tournament for three consecutive years from 2009-2011.

Murray finally went a step further in the following year but fell short in the final to Swiss Roger Federer.

The Briton won the opening set before losing the next three sets. During the title ceremony, he couldn't control his emotions as a clearly shaken Murray broke down in tears.

However, it all came together a year after the heartfelt scenes were seen on Centre Court, as Murray went on to finally achieve one of his biggest goals ever.

It was all set for the win

Wimbledon wasn't the only place where Andy Murray was struggling early on in his career to win a Grand Slam title as he was having the same problems at the remaining Majors. A winning run at the 2012 US Open handed the 30-year-old his first Major title, helping him to shrug off the pressure of not being a Grand Slam champion.

But, before making it all the way in New York, the Briton captured the London Olympics shortly after a painful 2012 Wimbledon final defeat.

Entering the 2013 Wimbledon edition, Murray was probably in the best position ever to finally complete a winning run for the first time at The Championships.
