Verdasco said he was pleased with his performances this past week, that saw him reach his biggest final in five years, but admits Murray proved a formidable foe and was just too good for him in Saturday’s final.

“Obviously he doesn’t have many weaknesses because he’s No 1 in the world. It’s not easy to beat him,” said the Spanish 33-year-old.

“I believed in myself before the match that if I had my best day or for sure a great day, I could have chances to win, but obviously if you don’t really play your best tennis it’s really tough.

“I’m just, for that side, a little sad and disappointed, like, after the hard work that I did the whole week to be in the finals. Obviously very happy, but once you’re in the finals, you want to win it, and obviously for one side disappointed that I couldn’t at least play as I really wanted to play.”
