Murray still looking `energized, eager` despite grueling 24-hr period after Wimbledon final

London: Newly crowned Wimbledon champion Andy Murray was reportedly still looking energized and eager despite a grueling 24 hours following his victorious finale.
Usually the Scot looks bleary eyed from the heavy celebrations after a win, especially after a brutal contest, and becomes so weary with the exertion of what he has just achieved that it appears to be hard for him to go back to the well.
However, a report said that after an endless round of TV interviews in the bright sunshine on the roof lawn at the All England Club, Murray posed for photographs next to the statue of Fred Perry outside Centre Court, did three separate press conferences for the written media, which was then followed by a Twitter question and answer session.
After these events, Murray went to play tennis with some children from the inner city, followed by a meeting with UK Prime Minister David Cameron in his Downing Street residence, and his eventful day was wrapped up with a sushi dinner with his friends, according to the reports.
Praising Murray for his work ethic and his refusal to stop work even after the biggest win of his life, the report said that it is not possible for a player like Murray to throw away his win after sacrificing parts of his childhood, overcoming negative publicity and struggling for his each and every win, by partying and relaxing.
According to the report, such behaviour is not in Murray`s make-up, adding that winning Grand Slams is a passport for Murray to achieve even more success, instead of partying and moving in roped-off VIP nightclubs.
Insisting that he is not addicted to partying, drinking or smoking, the US Open champion said that even though he enjoys being out with his friends, he enjoys training more and does not think that he will get sidetracked by his recent run of successes.
Aware that in many sports, a lot of distractions comes with fame, Murray further said that if a player surrounded himself with the right people, who are honest with him, he would get himself into such situations, adding that he is lucky to have such people around him.
Praising his coach Ivan Lendl, the Scot also said that he is trying to ape Lendl`s work ethic and the drive for consistency, which was evident in his competitiveness as a player.
