Andy Murray ‘will never win another Slam’ declares former world number four
Andy Murray will not add to his three Major titles after getting a metal hip according to this former top pro and respected analyst.
The 34-year-old Brit is battling his way back up the rankings after years of injury setbacks and extensive surgeries.
Currently ranked at world number 121, Andy Murray has not been ranked within the top 100 since May 2018.
Though signs are good for the former world number one, former British number one Tim Henman believes that there is no chance that Murray will achieve another Slam triumph.
“In my opinion, for him to win best of five set matches, seven times, over a fortnight with a metal hip is a step too far,” Henman told talkSPORT.
“I say that also knowing that he loves to prove people wrong and I’d be delighted if he proved me wrong.”
Andy Murray won the 2012 US Open and 2013 and 2016 Wimbledon titles. He has reached eight further Slam finals, and has made the final of all four Majors.
“Can he win on tour? Yeah I think he can,” Henman added. “You look at the way he has played recently and you look at the way he’s played since Queen’s when he’s been back on the match court, I think he’s shown a lot of improvement.
“He’s played some quality players – [Stefanos] Tsitsipas in New York was an example, he’s played [Hubert] Hurkacz twice, including in the semis in France in a tour event.
“His game is definitely trending in the right direction and if he can stay injury free without any other niggles or setbacks, I think his game is going to get better and better.”
