SHOWS: LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (JUNE 14, 2017) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1. (SOUNDBITE) (English) WORLD NUMBER ONE, ANDY MURRAY, TALKING ABOUT ROGER FEDERER AND RAFA NADAL, SAYING: "They've both played great, great tennis and to start the season amazing; what Rafa did in Paris to win for the 10th time you know that's... when you watch them play that's motivating to try to get better and I know if I don't improve myself I'm not going to be able to win the big competitions or be able to beat them so it's motivating and they've done great this year." STORY: Andy Murray admitted on Wednesday (June 14) that he was unlikely to stay at world number one for the rest of the year. The two-times Wimbledon champion said the likes of Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer have played brilliantly this year and he has a lot of points to defend after a strong finish to the 2016 season. Nadal won his 10th French Open at the weekend while Federer claimed the Australian Open but the 18-times grand slam champion has been on a self-imposed three-month break, returning to action at the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart, Germany on Wednesday. Murray made the semi-finals at the French Open and after a disappointing first half to 2017 the Olympic champion is hoping he can be more consistent, starting at the Queen's Club Championship next week where he will attempt to win the title for a sixth time.
