Tennis: Pilates gave Andy Murray the edge – and it made him a nicer person, according to MailOnline. Once imagesdescribed by his former coach as extremely negative, Murray has used Pilates to channel his energy as well as condition and heal his body. The power of the mind to guide the body may just have been a key to Murray’s stunning victory in the 2012 U.S. Open – a nearly five-hour match of grueling tennis. With the triumph, Murray landed his first major title and became the first British man in 76 years to win a grand slam championship. Why Pilates and tennis? Pilates is all about balance – no muscle group is under- or overtrained. For Murray it has proved to be an essential element of his training – one that helps him stay focused on the game. ‘When my mind is clear, I can go on the court, not worry about anything else. I can play much better and think a lot better on the court,’ he has said.
