Bother Jamie on Andy Murray: “His game is good, he just needs the chance to compete”

A little bit of luck is all that is standing between Andy Murray and a big career revival, says brother Jamie.

Murray underwent major hip surgery in 2019 after failing to conquer a long-standing injury. Since then, he has insisted he is playing without pain, although smaller injuries have plagued him.

Groin injuries, which are probably linked to the hip problem, have been a particular problem, and he had to miss the Australian Open due to COVID.

However, the former world number one has been resolute in his determination to keep trying, and Jamie says that belief comes from seeing how good his tennis still is.

“It has been frustrating for him,” Jamie Murray told the BBC. “Obviously he keeps getting niggles and stuff that has set him back.

“For him, he just needs to get a clear run of events, and that is what has been difficult for him for various reasons over the last few months.

“His game is good, he just needs the chance to compete.

“Hopefully with the grass season coming up, he can get a good four or five weeks of tournaments under his belt and try to build up some momentum for himself.”

Andy Murray has opted to skip the French Open to make sure he is fit for grass season.
