Andy Murray has been sailing through a rather peculiar moment of his career and life in general. The former world no.1 has been battling for a couple of years with a problem to his hip. Eventually, he had a successful operation last year and he even managed to win an ATP event in Antwerp the following October.
However, Andy had to be sidelined from competitions since last November as he kept on struggling with his body. Murray was back to play competitive tennis on the occasion of the recent “Battle of the Brits” where he managed to through the stage group before renouncing to play the play-off for the third place.
Andy had definitely the intention to compete in Wimbledon, but unfortunately that will not happen as the Championships have been canceled because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Wimbledon had to be hosted during these days and Murray sent a heartfelt message about missing the competition.
Murray posted the following message on social media
“Not many better days on the tennis calendar than opening Monday @wimbledon….gutted it’s not happening this year and will be missing moments like this…”
Andy won Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016 and he was the runner-up in 2012.
