Murray: 'US Open win made me mentally stronger'

When you lose the fourth set having served for it, maybe 18 months ago I wouldn't have come back from that so I think mentally I've probably become stronger because of the results at the end of last year.

I don't think loads has changed in my game, I just think understanding what I need to do in the important moments.

I'm sure if I get myself into the position to win I'm sure it will maybe be easier to win than the US open or Wimbledon last year.

But to get into that position I am going to have to play an unbelievable match and recover well as this was a long, long match.
