Andy Murray can work up a righteous hunger after playing a tough match, And the Scot is anything but shy about packing away the recovery calories during his post-tennis feeding sessions.
After spending nearly four hours in beating Spaniard Feliciano Lopez to advance at the New York major, the world number four Scot was thinking of nothing but where his next meal was coming from.
The gluten-free player, who in the past was known for knocking back 30-40 sushi rolls, admits he needs plenty of healthy fuel to perform: "I eat a lot of protein, meat, fish. I have like protein shakes I take after the match. I try to get about 150 grams of protein in me, that helps repair the muscles. I need to eat a lot.
"You can lose two or three kilos so you have to drink properly. Obviously when you finish you're still burning calories. I just need to make sure I stay topped up on that. If you don't, you'll be tired going into the next match."
As he prepared to face the monster serve of Canadian Milos Raonic in the fourth round, Murray admitted that sushi would certainly be on the menu. "We actually had steak a couple nights ago, maybe tomorrow I'll do that. For for dinner I'll have fish one night, chicken the next, then steak.
"I try not to have the same thing every day."
