The double Olympic champion smiled: “When I played in the Olympics against Wawrinka in the first round in London (2012), Federer was sitting in his box for that match.
“That was quite weird. I don’t know. It was just a bit weird looking up and seeing him sitting in the players box when usually you look up and see kind of coaches and family and whatnot. He was there in his Swiss track suit and stuff.
“I don’t know, he’s obviously one of the best players of all time, and he was, yeah, just sitting in the box. I played well in that match, so I don’t want to say he put me off.
“Yeah, I mean, there’s not anyone I wouldn’t want to watch me, but definitely you feel certain player’s presence more than others maybe.”
Serena Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam champion, said of Murray’s win: “Usually when you’re waiting for a match, someone is down two sets, you root for the person that’s ahead so you can get on the court.
