On the occasion of the latest episode of The Rennae Stubbs Tennis Podcast, the former Australian tennis star addressed various topics, including the one on the timeless legend Andy Murray, who is experiencing a second youth, and is finally finding continuity after the long ordeal , caused by the hip operation.
The former doubles number one has in fact urged his many fans to enjoy the last years of the Scotsman's career, rather than think about the number of Wild Cards he receives. She said: "Enjoy the ride, folks, enjoy the ride.
You know, one of the great things about him making it to the final is all the people complaining about why he got a wildcard? I say: for this." She then focused on a feature, which she has always distinguished the former number one, during her very long career: "Because this is the entertainment factor that you get with Andy Murray.
You know he will never give up, you know he will give everything, you know he will fight to the end and he always wants to win. He is one of the greatest players we have had in the last two decades. So if he wants 55 wildcards, give them to him.
As far as I'm concerned, that's my opinion."
Murray is ready to return protagonist
In this first glimpse of the season Andy Murray has found a continuity that has been missing for a long time. The marathons won at the Australian Open against Matteo Berrettini and Thanasi Kokkinakis and the stupendous ride at the ATP in Doha, crushed in the final only in front of a very solid Daniil Medvedev, made long-time enthusiasts dream.
The three-time Grand Slam champion recently declared that he feels ready to achieve further important results in the Grand Slams, especially Wimbledon where he won in the 2013 and 2016 editions: "I honestly don't think I can win Roland Garros, but with Wimbledon I have a great opportunity to go all the way.
I'm training great but I'm not just thinking about Wimbledon. I'm trying to think day by day and try to get the most out of my performance. If I do that and build up enough during the season, I think I'll have a good game at Wimbledon and above all I'll be in an adequate position in the league table."
