Andy Murray was asked about his chances at Wimbledon. The British player last competed there in 2017 losing to Sam Querrey in the quarter-finals before his hip forced him to stop competing for a while. Murray, during the premiere of his documentary about the whole injury process he went through, said: “To play there, yes (I’m feeling positive), but winning? No.
I wouldn’t put my money on me to win the event just now, but if I can get there and be pain-free, I can do well”. On his expectations for the Australian Open that starts in January, Murray added: “I was asked what would be successful in Australia and I don’t know how I will perform – I’m not expecting to win the tournament – but if I can play a five-set match and get through and have no ill effects on the hip then that is success.
Because I know I will be able to compete in the major tournaments without having to worry about it. I was asked what would be a success in Australia and I don't know how I will perform - I'm not expecting to win the tournament - but if I can play a five-set match and get through and have no ill effects on the hip then that is a success.
I have played three-set matches and some long ones recently, but the best of five is an extra hour, hour-and-a-half on top of that so I will find out in Australia. If I can get through that tournament and get through some long matches potentially feeling good it would be a big positive”.
