"I struggle to understand what would motivate someone to make this kind of accusation," Murray added. "But considering that this statement was made in the context of the #metoo movement, I want to take this moment to acknowledge the overall importance of this conversation, as well as to reaffirm my commitment to being an ally for women."
"It's a tough match. Not easy third round. He's, in my opinion, one of the best players in the world, you know, when he's fit and healthy," said Murray, the runner-up at Roland Garros a year ago. "But I definitely feel like I'm capable of winning that match. I mean, I'm playing way better than I was two weeks ago."
