Andy Murray has admitted that his winning run has taken his mind off his fatigue and helped him make better decisions when under pressure.

Andy Murray (1/5 Cincinnati Open Outright) will be looking to finish August off in style by adding the Cincinnati Open title to his gold medal from the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

The 29-year-old is in a rich vein of form and his semi-final victory over Milos Raonic in Cincinnati on Saturday was the Scot’s 22nd consecutive win.

It took Murray less than 90 minutes to overcome Raonic, who he had beaten in the final of Wimbledon last month.

Following that 6-3 6-3 victory over the Canadian, Murray (2/1 2016 US Open Outright) is preparing to face Marin Cilic in the final on Sunday as he builds up towards the US Open later this month.

The double Olympic and Wimbledon champion has admitted fatigue has been an issue but hopes his recent form can continue when he takes on the Croatian Cilic (10/3 Cincinnati Open Outright) in the final.

“If you’re a bit lower on confidence, regardless of how fresh you are, if you haven’t played loads of matches you make bad decisions in those moments,” Murray said.

“Because I’ve won a lot the last few months, that’s something that has been good, especially this week for sure.

“I’ve needed it to be because I haven’t been feeling perfect. I’ve managed to get through the matches pretty well.”
