Andy Mur­ray has lashed out at John McEn­roe over his claims that the world num­ber one should be still seen as “a dis­tant fourth” in com­par­i­son with the three other mem­bers of the Big Four. When asked about McEn­roe’s com­ments on the eve of the grass-court tour­na­ment, Mur­ray though ad­mit­ted that Roger Fed­erer, Rafael Nadal and No­vak Djokovic had achieved more over the course of their ca­reers.

On what turned out to be a suc­cess­ful day af­ter a draw with higher-ranked Ge­or­gia in the opener, the other three boards ended in a draw.
