Andy Murray spoke at a 2012 US Tennis Open press conference earlier and spoke of a dream he had about Roger Federer. Naturally, many of us have had dreams of the Swiss tennis phenom, but his was more family friendly of beating the man on his own home turf.
Below is Andy Murray speaking about his dream, but it came after Roger Federer beat him at Wimbledon last July. Murray dreamt that he had beaten the Swiss who plays like one of his countries timepieces, but he was able to see that dream come true last month at the 2012 London Olympic Games.
“Like four days after Wimbledon I dreamt I won Wimbledon, and I woke up in the morning and I was just starting to feel better,” he said. “That didn’t help,” he said looking like he was trying to joke but not quite getting there.
Oddly enough, days after defeating Federer, he dreamt he lost the Olympic final, then woke up and remembered it was again just a dream, and he was still the Olympic champion and was able to enjoy the biggest win of his career again.
“Obviously waking up remembering that I had won was nice,” Murray commented about actually defeating his own Olympic dream.
Murray enters the 2012 US Tennis Open as the third seed, and after his Olympic win, he’s one of the favorites to win the Grand Slam title. When asked about if he’s had any more Roger Federer dreams, he answered “Not yet, not yet, but I’ll keep you posted.”
