Ex-Chelsea physio speaks extremely highly of Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal

Former Chelsea physio Eva Carneiro has praised Andy Murray for turning to science in his bid to return to his old level as she hailed Murray and Rafael Nadal for "breaking boundaries on all fronts." Murray, who is set to turn 35 in 10 days, sustained a majpr injury in 2017 - that required two surgeries.

Even though the odds are against Murray, he is stil trying and giving his best as he hasn't given up on his hopes of reaching again his old level. Carneiro, who worked for Chelsea until 2015, teamed up with nutritionist Glenn Kearney to produce supplemend named "TRR." The suplement is comercially available and was created to help Murray improve his fitness and strength.

“Fantastically knowledgeable – the kind of athlete who is always looking to examine the science and trying to work out how it can help him," Carneiro told The Telegraph, as quoted on Tennis365. “As medical professionals, we are discovering that what we thought was impossible is no longer the case.

Athletes like Andy and Rafael Nadal are breaking boundaries on all fronts. “These are unique, very intelligent, educated people, who are prepared to take and examine medical evidence and advice and push through perceived challenges”.

Murray's Madrid campaign ends on an unfortunate way

Murray clinched two strong wins in Madrid as he defeated 2020 US Open champion Dominic Thiem in the first round, before defeating Denis Shapovalov in the second round.

Murray was scheduled to meet world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the Madrid round-of-16 but their match never happened as Murray was forced to give a walkover after being struck by an illness. It was an unfotunate end to what looked like a really promising campaign for Murray.

Murray hasn't reached a Masters quarterfinal since 2017 and in Madrid he was just a win away from reaching the last-8. However, Murray still has something to be happy about as beating Thiem and Shapovalov showed that he can still compete very well against the best in the world.
