Andy Murray was seen at the London O2 arena this week, as he watched the matches alongside his former coach. The Brit is making a slow recovery back into the professional world of tennis. Roger Federer was asked about the current predicament of Andy Murray.
“I feel you can very quickly play top-30 level‘, said Roger Federer. “That level he found quickly and easily, he wasn’t 100% so that makes me feel good about his chances”, he continued. “Problem is that he has been No. 1, has won doubles Olympic gold, so it’s not enough to play last 16 or quarters”, said Federer. “I’m confident if he does feel 100% he can play back to the top. But I just don’t know how he’s feeling”, added Federer.
Even Novak Djokovic sent out his message towards the Andy Murray camp, for a speedy recovery. ‘I don’t know in details how severe his injury is or what he’s going through”, said Djokovic. “He’s a great guy, I have tonnes of respect with him, we grew up together. I sincerely wish him a speedy recovery”, he continued. “One of the biggest struggles he’s going through is who to trust”, said Djokovic.
