Andy Murray ‘still believes’ he can win Wimbledon again despite injury woes
Former British number one Andy Murray has admitted he “still believes” that he can win a third Wimbledon title, saying that “it is part of the motivation to be still out there competing.”
Murray took the SW19 title in both 2013 and 2016, but since 2017 he has been the victim of a series of injuries, most notably with his hip which ultimately required an operation to have a metal cap inserted.
The Scot finally looked back to his old self and in good form as he recorded wins over world number six Stefanos Tsitsipas and Nick Kyrgios en route to a first ATP final in three years at the Stuttgart Open.
However, during the final in Germany against Matteo Berrettini, Murray sustained the abdominal injury which forced him out of Queen’s as he was even unable to serve properly during the final set decider in Stuttgart.
Despite the injury, Andy Murray, who has not won a grass-court title since his second Wimbledon title back in 2016, is set to participate in this year’s tournament and has raised hopes that he can go deep in the tournament once again.
In a recent interview, the former world number one told reporters, “That [winning another Wimbledon title] is part of the motivation to still be out there competing.
“I know, obviously, that’s going to be an unbelievably difficult thing to do, but I do still believe that I’ve got great tennis in me.
“I know it’s going to be even harder to win Wimbledon than it was five, six years ago.”
