Murray is the fourth ATP leader after Federer, Nadal, Djokovic - Woodforde

In an interview with Sky Sport, the 14-time Major champion in doubles Mark Woodforde commented on Andy Murray and Serena Williams reaching the third round in Wimbledon mixed doubles. "He and his doubles partner have chances to win the title.

They are great partners. She is confident because she is winning matches in single. Getting that winning feeling for Andy will help to prepare the singles. We have three incredible leaders in our sport and he is certainly the fourth one.

It would be fantastic if he got back to that level again," said the Australian. Murray feels grateful for being able to play tennis again: "When I got my hip injury, I was ranked No. 1 in the world. I went from, yeah, playing at the highest level of the sport to really struggling to do kind of day-to-day things.

First of all, playing tennis was not fun any more, because it was painful every time I played. The training and stuff wasn't great. Then I wasn't enjoying just, you know, going out for a walk, doing other kind of social things as well.

Going out for dinner and things like that, it was just uncomfortable. Now that I'm pain-free again, I realize that's actually the most important thing, is to be healthy, enjoying a kind of normal life, for someone that's 32 - I think I am now 32 years old (smiling).

I'm just doing the things I've always loved doing again, which I didn't have the opportunity to do much the last couple of years." Murray and Williams lost in the mixed doubles third round on Wednesday.
