Andy Murray was one of the players that were expected to stage a comeback in 2018 alongside Djokovic, Nadal, Nishikori, Raonic, and Wawrinka. We may be disappointed about that.
IN 2017, Andy had to cut short his season just before the US Open to cope with the problem with his hip, but it doesn’t seem that things have improved so much.
After Novak Djokovic withdrew from the Mubadala World Tennis Championship, Andy agreed to play an exhibition set against Roberto Bautista-Agut.
Andy lost 6-2 against the Spaniard, and it was shocking seeing how much the Brit was struggling when moving around as Andy seemed to refuse to chase any ball that was landing a bit far from him (definitely not his style).
Andy was 0-4 down when it seemed the Spaniard “helped” his opponent not to end up the set in complete misery.
After Djokovic and Nadal retired from their inaugural tournaments, we still wonder if Andy will compete in Brisbane where he seeded no.2.
It’s not a great start of the year for the top players.
