Andy Murray chooses Roger Federer as the player he would like to coach

The three-time Major champion and world no. 129. Andy Murray is yet to play a match in 2020, sidelined since the Davis Cup Finals last November. That will change in the next couple of weeks in New York, with Andy entering Cincinnati and the US Open.

A former US Open champion is eager to feel the magic at Majors again and test his skills against the rest of the field. After all kinds of troubles in the past four years, Murray is ready to extend his career and focus on the most significant events, determined to challenge the rivals from the top again.

In 2016, Murray became the player to watch in the second part of the year, delivering an incredible finish to grab nine ATP titles and 78 wins in total, passing Novak Djokovic to earn the year-end no. 1 title. Andy conquered Beijing, Shanghai, Vienna, Paris, and the ATP Finals, completing the wild chase with a win over Djokovic in London's last match to become the best player of the season.

Andy stayed at the top until Wimbledon next year when he started to feel all the challenges from the previous season, struggling with a hip injury and missing all the action after the All England Club. With no positive results in the second part of the season, Murray underwent surgery in January 2018.

The Briton returned at Queen's in June, playing 12 matches that year and opting for another surgery in January 2019 after that epic clash against Roberto Bautista Agut in Melbourne. After that match, many fans had thought he wouldn't be able to make a return, struggling with the pain that was affecting his life outside tennis as well.

Andy Murray would love to coach Roger Federer and win big titles with him.

Determined to extend his career, Murray won the doubles title at Queen's with Feliciano Lopez for a perfect comeback last June, winning the first ATP singles title since Dubai 2017 in Antwerp in October and moving closer to the place in the top-100.

At the Davis Cup Finals, Andy had to endure another setback, experiencing a pelvic injury that forced him to skip the ATP Cup, the Australian Open and other events at the beginning of 2020. The coronavirus pandemic had put the tennis season under the ice for five months, with the restart of the season coming next week in New York.

Asked about the player he would love to coach, Andy Murray picked Roger Federer, praising his tennis knowledge and saying he would enjoy to talk with Roger and share big titles with him. "I would love to coach Roger Federer because I would learn a lot, and it would be interesting to talk tennis with him, watch him train, and win a lot with him," Andy Murray said.
