Murray: Lloyd criticism feels like 'background music'

Andy Murray has told reporters that recent criticism from David Lloyd was like "background music".

Ahead of this week's Davis Cup final, when Murray will spearhead Great Britain's team against Belgium, Lloyd accused him of not doing enough to promote the growth of tennis in Britain.

Speaking to the press today, Murray hit back at hose claims by describing them "a bit like background music. You know it's there but you're not really listening."

Novak Djokovic beat Andy Murray for the 10th time in their last 11 meetings to lift the Paris Masters title once again.

A 6-2 6-4 victory for the world number one gave him his third successive trophy in Paris and earned him a 10th title of a remarkable season.

Djokovic was playing in his 14th consecutive final - a record for a single season - and now has 22 straight wins having not lost since the final in Cincinnati in August.

Andy Murray propelled Great Britain into their first Davis Cup final for 37 years with a straight-sets win over Australian number one Bernard Tomic.

Murray produced a 7-5 6-3 6-2 triumph over the world number 23 to send Britain into an unassailable 3-1 lead and ensure they will face Belgium or Argentina in the final on November 27-29 as they seek to win the tournament for the first time since 1936.

Just as he was during Friday's demolition of Thanasi Kokkinakis, Murray was on top form as he treated about 8,000 fans at Glasgow's Emirates Arena to an outstanding array of shots.

The Olympic champion has now helped Britain to their last seven Davis Cup points - along with brother Jamie - to see off the United States, France and now the Australians.

Andy Murray has been knocked out of the US Open by big-serving South African Kevin Anderson in four sets.

Anderson, the 15th seed, played brilliantly to secure a 7-6 (7/5), 6-3, 6-7 (2/7), 7-6 (7/0) victory at the Louis Armstrong Stadium in New York.

It is the first time in 19 major tournaments that Murray has failed to make the quarter final stages.

Shortly earlier another British hopeful, Johanna Konta, saw her fairytale run in the tournament come to an end at the hands of Petra Kvitova.

The 24-year-old British number two had surprised many by reaching a grand slam last-16 for the first time, but lost to the two-time Wimbledon champion 7-5, 6-3.
