‘I worry about his health’ – Greg Rusedski says Andy Murray may soon need to reassess future

Greg Rusedski believes Andy Murray will make a decision about his future at the end of the year if he remains fit.

Murray has had a stop-start year as he continues to battle his way back the hip injury that decimated his career.

He has also had a groin injury and COVID-19 to contend with this year, although he looks like he is finally starting to get a run of tennis together.

However, Rusedski has admitted he ‘worries’ about Murray’s health, and thinks he may decide he does not need tennis if he gets a run of matches and is still unable to produce something close to his best tennis.

“It’s great to see him winning some matches again, but the problem is we are comparing him,” Greg Rusedski told Tennis365 of Andy Murray.

“It’s phenomenal what he did to win a tournament after hip surgery in 2018 and what we saw from him in Cincinnati last week was encouraging, but to go on and win these big events at the Master 1000 level or the US Open is unrealistic.

“I worry about Andy’s health. I had injuries in my career and it is tough to keep coming back.

“He has four kids, a beautiful wife, a great life out there for him and he has nothing more to prove in our sport.

“Andy will get the answer he wants by the end of this year. If he can have a good run of being healthy from now to the Paris Masters, he will have his question answered.”
