“I mean, there was a number of times over the last 18 months where I did want to stop,” Andy Murray said. “You know, I didn’t want to play anymore. I was getting no enjoyment out of tennis at all, whether that be training, practice matches. Winning matches weren’t really bothered really either because it wasn’t fun”.

Presently, Andy Murray is on cloud nine to hold his tennis racquet and once again run back and forth on his home turf. “Yeah, now it’s just nice. I like playing tennis. I’m sure some of you guys like playing tennis and enjoy getting out on the court and hitting tennis balls. I’m exactly the same. Like, I’m a fan of the sport. I have played it since I was a kid. And, yeah, I want to keep playing if I can because I enjoy it,” Andy Murray mentioned.

The Scotsman is looking forward to stepping on the courts SW19 where is he has thrice achieved his career milestones (two Slams and one Olympic Gold medal). “Yeah, it would be nice to be winning, like, Wimbledon and major tournaments and things like that, but you know, hardly anyone gets the opportunity to do that, and there are still loads of players that still love and enjoy the sport without being able to, you know, win the biggest competitions,” Andy Murray continued.

Presently, Murray is training to get used to the doubles form tennis and rejoicing his return to tennis. “And I would hope that I would be able to, you know, to deal with that absolutely fine, as well, and just enjoy. I have enjoyed practicing and training doubles and getting ready for this event, although it’s different from what I’m used to. I’m fine with that. It’s not a big deal,” Andy Murray said.
