Murray admits he played 'way too much' Pro Evo
Andy Murray has admitted his video game addiction affected his performance on court after he stayed up late to play before key matches.
The three-time Grand Slam winner became so obsessed with gaming that he would stay up until the early hours of the morning on his Playstation.
But the late-night sessions of games like Pro Evolution Soccer left him feeling tired when he walked out on court to do his job hours later.
"I would travel with a Playstation everywhere until probably I was like 26," said the 32-year-old, who gave up gaming while at big events a few years ago. I was playing way too much.
"I had to play tennis the next day and I was playing until like 2 or 3am. It would be hours, not minutes. Pro Evolution Soccer is what I used to play."
Murray's former coach Brad Gilbert said the Scot played video games for seven hours a day when they worked together between 2006 and 2007, revealing it caused rows between the pair.
