Andy Murray is a man determined to get himself fully fit and back to competing on the tour. He spent the past couple of years nursing injuries, but is gradually making his way to full match-fitness. His brother Jamie, a professional doubles player, expressed his hopes of partnering up in a Grand Slam before either one retires for good.
Looking at Andy’s titles and achievements in tennis, there is little doubt he is a top player. He carved out a reputation for himself by winning multiple Grand Slams, rising to World No. 1 of the ATP Rankings back in 2016. Moreover, the Brit even has a unique record to his name — two consecutive Olympic Gold medals in singles tennis.
Andy Murray optimistic about his fitness
It would do his reputation no harm should Andy Murray retire from the sport tomorrow; he will remain an iconic player, always remembered in the history of the sport. However, he will be sorely missed, as has been the case these past couple of years.
Jamie is optimistic about their chances of featuring together:
“We don’t know what will happen with Andy’s hip but we hope he’s going to get back fit and healthy and get back on to the court. I haven’t seen him for a while – this break will give us the chance to catch up but I know he’s been practicing which is good news. We’ve always said we wanted to play Wimbledon one time together before we stop and hopefully we’ll get that chance.”
It would certainly be a treat for us fans to watch the dynamic duo on the Wimbledon grass.
Andy recently gave a positive update on his fitness as well:
“I’ve been practicing on the courts the last couple of weeks and been feeling quite well. Practiced two, two-and-a-half hours some days and it(the injury) has been responding well so fingers crossed it stays that way.”
Andy could very well be fit in time for the Wimbledon Championships; however, it remains to be seen if the event goes ahead as scheduled, given the current situation around the world.
