    No, not that kind of positive.

    The great Swiss is delighted to be back at Wimbledon and is hoping to kick on to the second week.

    He opens up his tournament this afternoon on centre.

    I think I've got to take the positives out of these last few weeks, that I'm actually here at Wimbledon right now and I have a chance. I know if I get rolling, I get into the second week – which is the goal here right now, that I get stronger and stronger as every match goes by – I believe it's very much possible.

    Andy Murray has insisted that it wasn't easy mentally in the fourth set against Nikoloz Basilashvili.

    He said: "I did well to win in the fourth set because it was mentally not easy going back out there.

    "I went and had a shower, went to the toilet – just for a number one.

    "I was just disappointed I had lost the third and I had to remember what I had been doing well to get into that position.

    "I brought back some of the drop-shots and served a bit better than I had in the third set.”


    Yesterday's tennis was good……… but day two will be better!

      He was done, finished.

      Videos played showing his career at some events, paying homage to a great player on the way out.

      He was won twice on the tour this year, all with a metal hip.

      Today, he wins at Wimbledon.

      An emotional Andy Murray bites back at critics who keep asking if he'll be retiring.

      And he bit back well.

      I keep getting asked ‘will this be my last Wimbledon’ or sometimes my last match.
      I don’t know. I don’t know why I keep getting asked. I want to keep playing.
      I can compete at the highest level. He’s ranked 28th in the world and I’ve hardly played.
      And I have beaten him.

      Murray reveals – in decent detail – what he did during the break after the third set!

      I went in and had a shower. I went to the toilet. Just a number one!
      Then I was disappointed I lost the third.
      Then had to cut out some of the dropshots and go back to what I was doing when I was winning.

      Andy Murray gives his immediate reaction after winning in four sets

      It’s amazing to be back here and playing again on centre court.
      It was a brilliant atmosphere and I’ve missed playing in front of the fans.
      It was a great reception when I came out and they were great throughout, so thanks for that.
      I did well to win the fourth set in the end as that was mentally not easy after losing the third.
