Former doubles world No 1 Jamie Murray says he believes Andy Murray can return to the top of the men's game. Andy, 35, sustained a major hip injury in 2017 as he has been playing with a metal hip for the past few years. Also, Andy hasn't had any notable Grand Slam results since reaching the 2017 Wimbledon quarterfinal.
Andy, a three-time Grand Slam champion and former world No 1, is now ranked at No 49 in the world. "I'm hoping for good things for him. There are opportunities at the top of the men's game for him to get back up there, I really believe that," Jamie said, per LTA.
Andy Murray confirmed his first tournament of the season
This week, Murray announced he plans to start the season at the Adelaide International.
“I’ll be starting the year in Australia, which I always really enjoy. Playing at the Adelaide International for the first time is something I’m looking forward to. The crowds in Australia love their tennis and they’ve always been very supportive.
I’ve been working hard in the off season and the Adelaide International will be great preparation for the Australian Open. I’m looking forward to seeing what Adelaide and 2023 brings," Murray said. Ahead of the 2022 season, Murray said his big goal for 2022 was to make a big Grand Slam result.
Unfortunately for Murray, that didn't happen. Going into the 2023 season, Murray has hinted he plans to play a lot as he hasn't given up on his hopes of making another great result before he retires. "I've got a pretty busy schedule planned.
I'll be kicking off the year in Australia which I always really enjoy. I'll be playing a tournament out there, and then the Australian Open. After that I'll be doing some more hard-court tournaments, then hopefully the clay, and then back to the UK for the grass-court season," Murray revealed.
