Andy Murray celebrates at Wimbledon Djokovic

‘The hip feels good’ – Andy Murray delivers positive fitness update after five-set Wimbledon epic

Andy Murray said his hip ‘felt good’ after he came through a five-set epic against Oscar Otte at Wimbledon.

Murray appeared to be in complete control of the match early on before badly losing his way in the next two sets.

That left him on the brink of going out of the competition, but he was able to muster some trademark fighting spirit and finished the match supremely strongly in front of a roaring Centre Court crowd.

Perhaps even more importantly, though, Murray declared himself fit and pain-free after the match despite the four-hour marathon.

“I’m obviously tired and fell a couple of times,” Andy Murray said after the 6-3, 4-6, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 win. “But considering everything I feel alright. The hips feel good.

“A rest day tomorrow and hopefully come out on Friday and play in an atmosphere like this.”

“I enjoyed the end. The middle part not so much. What an atmosphere to play in at the end.

“The whole crowd is amazing but there are a few guys in there that are getting me fired up. I needed everyone’s help tonight. They did a great job.

“I hit some great shots to finish it but it was a tough match.”
