‘Andy Murray has nothing to prove to anyone’ says former British number one

Andy Murray has achieved so much in his illustrious tennis career that he has nothing more to prove, says Greg Rusedski.

The former British number one, gave his thoughts on Murray after recent speculation that the Scots tennis career may be coming to an end.

Murray has undergone a well-documented comeback after having major surgery in 2019 for a long-term injury, leaving him with a metal hip.

In his first tournament post-surgery Andy Murray delighted fans by winning the doubles title at Queens with partner Feliciano Lopez.

He then went on to pick up a singles title later in the year winning the European Open at Antwerp.

However, other than a couple of notable wins against Alexander Zverev in the Cincinnati Open and Yoshihito in his first Grand Slam win in 20 months at the US Open, Murray’s season has been plagued by further injury.

He had to withdraw from the Australian Open with a pelvic injury, lost in the first round at Cologne while clearly struggling, then pulled out of the second ATP tournament at Cologne due to tendinitis before announcing his season was over.

And while Murray focuses on preparing for 2021, former Australian Open finalist Rusedski is hopeful he still has some good times ahead.

“Despite many questions over whether he could return to his best, I hope for Murray that he can have a big Wimbledon Championship and there is a crowd for him there,” said Rusedski.

“He’s got problems with the hip still so for me for him to win a major I think it’s too hard for him, but he could still have a good run.

“Even to win a Masters Series is a big ask, semis possibly. Masters Series is back-to-back and he hasn’t had much tennis during Covid. Who knows if Wimbledon could be his last event?

“He’s had an incredible career. Two Wimbledon titles, two Olympics golds, world No.1, he has nothing to prove to anyone.“
