Andy Murray speaks on fashion, family and metal hip

Former world No. 1 Andy Murray admits he is not that much into fashion but he always knows whether or not he likes a certain outfit. "I don’t know much about fashion at all, but I trial and test all of the kits from the technical side of things," Murray told The Evening Standard.

"When something’s put in front of me, I know I either like that or I don’t." Murray, a three-time Grand Slam champion, has undergone two hip surgeries since 2017. Murray hasn't been the same player after undergoing two major surgeries but he is still active on the Tour.

2016 Nitto ATP Finals champion Murray admitted he enjoyed the game more before than he is enjoying it now. "Once I had the metal hip I knew it wasn’t going to be easy," Murray admitted. "There’s just — at times, I didn’t expect it to be quite like this.

It’s either do it or stop playing, and I still want to keep playing. I just don’t enjoy it as much as maybe I did a few years ago."

Murray drawing positives from the situation

"I got to see my kids growing up in the last couple of years and I’ve spent loads of time around them and got to build great relationships with them, which I wouldn’t have had the chance to do otherwise… In some ways, that’s been really the positive thing that’s come out of this," Murray added.

During his interview, Murray also said: "I just want everyone, so men and women, to be treated the same. I don’t think that’s radical, I just think it should be a human right." Murray was hoping to play the Australian Open this year but a positive COVID-19 test prevented him from flying to Australia.

Murray ended runner-up at the Biella Challenger 2 in February, before losing in the Montpellier first round and the Rotterdam round-of-16.
