Andy Murray: ‘I have shown that there is still good tennis left in me’
A confident Andy Murray says he has proven he ‘still has good tennis left in him’ this year as he eyes more Wimbledon glory.
Murray played brilliantly at the Madrid Masters in May before switching to grass and impressive even more at Stuttgart, where he reached the final.
He was forced to withdraw from Madrid with illness, so he strung six wins together before losing to Matteo Berrettini in Germany.
“It’s gone well,” said Murray. “I’ve been able to gradually progress my training this week and got to play a few sets, a lot of points. The last few days have been good.
“I think I showed a couple weeks ago that there was still good tennis left in me. I beat a guy in the top five in the world, was neck and neck with Berrettini, who is one of the best grass-court players in the world, before the injury.
“I played well against Kyrgios as well. The first set was a good level. And I’ve been doing pretty well in practices. I know the tennis is in there, I just need to bring it out during the event now.
Andy Murray will also have the boost of having Ivan Lendl with him at Wimbledon.
Lendl was Murray’s coach during the best days of his career, and they started working together again in March.
“Obviously having Ivan on my team helps,” Murray said. “We’ve had a lot of success in the past. We know each other well. He still believes in me.
“There’s not loads of coaches, people out there, that have done over this last period, and he has. That definitely helps me.”
