Andy Murray will have more titles in the future, says Rafeal Nadal

Rafael Nadal has backed world number three Andy Murray to win more titles in the years to come.

The Spanish revealed how surprised he was to see Murray win only two grand slams and believes the Briton will eventually have plenty of succes in the future.

Murray has lost in four Australian Open finals and has never gone beyond the last four at the French Open.

The last time he won a major title was in 2013 when he won the Wimbledon beating the Serbian, Novak Djokovic, 6-4, 7-5, 6-4. This was after winning both the US Open and London Olympics in 2012.

Nadal, winner of 14 slams, has hailed Murray, and believes he could have enjoyed greater success.

“He’s a great guy, a natural guy and for me that is important,” Nadal told Sky Sports. “I am natural, I am honest with the people I’m talking to.

“If I’m playing bad, I don’t create stories. Andy is similar. He is fair, he is honest and a very good guy. And at the same time, he is one of the most talented players I have ever seen.

“I think he has an amazing career already. He will have had an even better career by the end, but at the same time for his level in general and his opportunities he should have won more.”
