ANDY Murray admits he must be careful what he says after a joke was misconstrued following his opening match at the Heineken Open in Auckland.
I love the fact that he says stuff like that - although obviously it's pretty insulting and not a fab idea to say it in an interview. I'm sure he has total respect for the girlies though.
The Scot, who bowed out at the second-round stage to Mario Ancic yesterday, was still upset at the reaction to his quip that he and Kenneth Carlsen had "played like women" in the early stages of their tournament opener.
I make one small comment, which was a joke, and it was taken completely out of context. There is still a lot of pressure on me - I have to watch every single word I say.
I was watching a Hopman Cup match on TV from here and [Svetlana] Kuznetsova said it after there were nine breaks in the first set, so that is why I said it.
I am going to have to change a little bit and not be myself as much as what I have been so far, because it is a little bit unfair on me how I get treated.
