‘Andy Murray is the most competitive guy you’ll ever see in your life,’ says Greg Rusedski

Greg Rusedski says he believes Andy Murray is capable of finding his way back to something like his former self despite his injury woes.

Murray was world number one in 2017 when he was struck down by a serious hip injury, and he has struggled to play regular tennis since.

He underwent major resurfacing surgery in 2019 and is now essentially trying to carry on with a metal hip, and Rusedski says that if anyone can do it, Andy Murray can.

“Andy is the most competitive guy you’ll ever see in your life,” Amazon Prime analyst and former US Open finalist Rusedski said.

“You don’t win three majors and get to number one and everything he’s accomplished without that massive belief and massive drive.

“Miami’s one of his favourite places to play. If he gets a good draw, there’s a real possibility of him having a good run.

“For me the question mark is always his movement to his forehand side.

“You can never discount great champions and it would be great to see him playing well again. You shoot for the stars and maybe you get to the moon.”

Murray has been handed a tough draw for the Miami Open, starting in the first round against recent Dubai runner-up Lloyd Harris.

If he can get through that he will face a second round clash with Roberto Bautista Agut, and he also finds himself in the same quarter of the draw as top seed Daniil Medvedev.
