Murray Kyrgios: The Scot defeats the young hopeful in straight sets in Aussie Open quarter-final clash
Andy Murray has fired an early shot at Tomas Berdych ahead of their Australian Open semi-final clash, with the Scot claiming his opponent is too old to change his bad habits.
Murray also said that former coach Dani Vallverdu’s inside knowledge of him will have little effect on the game.
Berdych hired Vallverdu after Murray parted ways with the Venezuelan in November last year.
“Tomas will be 30 this year,” Murray is quoted as saying by the Express.
“It’s very difficult to change your habits and the way you do things at that age.
“There are improvements that you can make but certain tendencies and habits, things that you’ve been doing your whole career naturally, are very difficult to change.
“You have to go with what you know. And maybe there will be a few things here and there that Dani may be able to help him with but there are a few things I know that Dani thinks about Tomas’s game as well.”
The winner of the Murray-Berdych match will face the victor of the clash between Stan Wawrinka and Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open final on Sunday.
