Andy Murray on Juan Martin del Potro: Very sad, must have been very difficult for him

Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray says it must have been extremely difficult for Juan Martin del Potro over the last few years as he says the whole situation is just sad. Del Potro, 33, has had way too many injury breaks throughout his career as he hasn't played since 2019 due to a knee issue.

On Saturday, del Potro announced he will play in Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro but then likely retire from the game. "I haven't seen it. I heard about it. And it's obviously very sad because he's had many issues, throughout his career physical problems.

I don't know you hope that things are gonna get better," Murray said, according to Varun Khanna.

"A lot of tough times and everything that you go through and it's not on camera.

I haven't sort of heard too much from from him in the last, I don't know, six months or a year, had seen a few videos of him practicing and trying to get back to playing."

"It must have been unbelievably difficult for him.

I don't really know what to say. I just I know having been in that position myself. You feel like you're sort of suffering a lot of the time alone or maybe the people around you know exactly what's going on," Murray added.

"And that's maybe the first time he's sort of spoken publicly for quite a while. I'm sure he probably feels better now for it because well, I'm sure the the amount of messages or sort of love and support that he would have got from his fans from media all around the world.
