London, June 23 (ANI): Britain’s No.1 tennis player Andy Murray has said that he is good enough to lift the Wimbledon title this year.

The World No.3 bid for glory begins on Centre Court today against American Robby Kendrick.

Murray, who lost in the quarterfinals to Rafa Nadal last year, said: “I now feel I can win the tournament. I am a much better player than when I was last at Wimbledon. I’ve had some good results with the highlight reaching the US Open final.”

“Now, I am looking to go one better. I have a lot more confidence in myself. When the big points and important moments come in matches, I feel like I am going to win them. I am just going into every match feeling and thinking exactly the same, not worrying about my opponents too much,” he added.

And the Scot says he won’t be underestimating World No.76 Kendrick, who he said was a tough grass court player, The Sun reports.

Murray said: “I’ve played him three times so I know a lot about him. He’s a tough grass-court player so there is no chance of me under- estimating him.” (ANI)
