Jamie Murray: I think future is bright for Andy Murray

Great Britain's Jamie Murray remains optimistic about the future of Andy Murray post-hip resurfacing surgery as he believes his brother could have a big 2020 season. Andy, a three-time Grand Slam champion and former world No.

1, captured his first ATP title since 2017 when he beat world No. 16 Stan Wawrinka in the Antwerp final two weeks ago. The younger Murray's run to the Antwerp title also included wins over Kimmer Coppejans, Pablo Cuevas, Marius Copil and Ugo Humbert.

"The stuff I watched he was hitting the ball well and his movement has improved so much in the last few weeks compared to when he first started playing again. I think the future is bright for him if he commits to that game style and has a good focus.

I don't see why he can't have a strong season next year," Jamie exclusively told The Daily Mail. However, the Antwerp title wasn't the only notable result Andy achieved since returning to tennis as he also beat world No.

9 Matteo Berrettini in the Beijing first round, before failing twice to serve out for the match against 12th-ranked Fabio Fognini in the Shanghai Masters second round. "So his level was there to be playing top 20, top 15 tennis, if you look who he was competitive against.

The more matches he plays his level will keep improving so I think next year is going to be very exciting for him," Jamie added.
