Even as he takes help from sports psychologists, he said, "In the past, the things I would say on court, it's embarrassing. I would never, ever speak to anybody like that. Ever," he was quoted as saying in The Mail Online.

"Here or in a restaurant or in my day-to-day life, I would never do it. If you listen to a lot of the things I say when I'm on the court, I'm incredibly self-critical.

But I know fine well when I come off the court after the match, the first person that I blame is myself," said the World No 3. Murray won the 2013 Wimbledon singles title.

"I don't want to say anything wrong to anyone when I am on the court, but it happens. When someone starts questioning you and you are in a pressure situation, the natural thing to do is to start making excuses for why you are doing something wrong."
