Andy Murray lost to the Spaniard Fernando Verdasco at the US Open, but the British player's mother Judy Murray believes that there are many positives to take from that match for her son. 'I thought he was amazing, I thought he was absolutely incredible', Judy admitted.
'It’s something like his ninth match and he just blew me away. The fight, you never lose that, that’s just within him. It’s still really early days in his [comeback] and he’s rusty, but like I said to him, rust comes off if you polish it.
Work hard and polish it, it will come off. I was blown away with how well he played, sometimes it was just like watching him where he’d always been. There were rusty bits as well but that’s completely understandable.
I thought he moved great, I thought it was incredible, very encouraging.' Judy also spoke about Andy's comeback from hip injury. 'He knows what it’s like. It’s just that this one has been longer and it’s probably been longer because he tried to rehab it conservatively to start off with and then had the surgery.
In hindsight, that may have cost him, or did cost him, an extra six months. But these are things you don’t know.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
