Tennis legend Boris Becker says Briton Andy Murray is ready to put up a fight against world number one Novak Djokovic in the upcoming Grand Slam events. So far in 2016, Murray and Djokovic have met in two Grand Slam finals (Australian Open, Roland Garros) - with 29-year-old Djokovic prevailing over the Scot both times.
However, Olympic champion Murray bounced back in front of his home crowd at the All England Club, as he won his second Wimbledon title ever after beating Milos Raonic in the final. According to six-time Major champion Becker, the 2016 Wimbledon champion has matured more and his level of stability is also on the list of his improvements.
Ivan Lendl is the one mainly credited for Murray's improvement in the last couple of years. ''I see him really challenging Djokovic's supremacy in the next few grand slams,'' said Becker to Gulf News, quoted by the Telegraph UK. ''What I think has changed for Murray is that a maturity and stability has come into his life.
The first big watershed was the London Olympics followed by the US Open win in 2012.'' German Becker also added that winning Wimbledon and the Olympics shows that the British top-ranked player is now less pressured and more in control of the mental side of things.
