In an interview, the former world No. 4 Tim Henman commented on Andy Murray's chances to be at his highest level again. Murray is training on hard courts again and he may take a wild card for Cincinnati next month in singles.
Henman said: "A leopard doesn’t change his spots. I was always the one who was guilty of giving the right answer rather than the honest answer. And I listened to that from Andy, thinking I would be sitting in the back of the room chuckling and thinking: “I’ll believe that when I see it.
That’s his character, he’s competitive. The fact that he’s a competitive animal is why he’s been so successful. Hitting with him on Monday, I can tell you he’s going to be out there to win, that’s for sure.
He’s not going to be there on some sight-seeing tour”. “If he was to come back and win a Slam, that would be the greatest of all time. But I think that’s going to be very, very difficult. Just given his environment and the competition.
It was hard enough to win one when he was younger and at the top of his game. And all those guys are still there", said Henman referring to Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. "For me, it would be amazing if he could get back playing on the main Tour, top 50 – and then go from there”.
