Andy Murray’s hiatus from tennis

The two-time Olympic Gold medalist has had a career filled with injuries. Having battled multiple setbacks since 2017, he has often been forced to pull out of tournaments after making comebacks. Murray’s last Grand Slam appearance was last year’s French Open, where he lost in the very first round.

After failing to secure a wildcard entry at this year’s Roland Garros, the Brit is extremely happy to be back on court and is looking forward to the Queens Club Championship.

I love tennis. When I have been away I’ve missed it,” Murray said to Cinch Championships.

Andy Murray and the Queen Club Championship- a match made in heaven

Andy has won the Queens Club Championship a record five times and will be looking for a sixth title ahead of the 2021 Wimbledon. The Briton has also completed the double of Queens-Wimbledon twice, in 2013 and 2016, however, that will be a far-fetched goal this time around.

The Queens Club Championship helps players warm-up for the Wimbledon, which is held right after the former tournament.

The tournament at Queen’s has always meant a lot to me – it’s where I won my first ATP match, I’ve won the singles at Queen’s more than any other in my career, and I’ll never forget our doubles title in 2019. I can’t wait to get back out there,” Murray said to Sky Sports.

The two-time Wimbledon champion will be looking for a source of redemption through the Queens Club Championship. In order to give his best shot at the Wimbledon later this month, Murray will have to go deep inside the Queens’ daw and get some wins under his belt to find his form. But as he has reiterated in recent times, he is content just plying his trade for now.
