Andy Murray shares positive news

Andy Murray recently shared some encouraging news with his fans. The third microchip (vaccine dose) has been successfully implanted, he said as he joked about the concerns some people have regarding the vaccine.

He took to Twitter shortly after receiving the shot and wrote a sweet note. He praised all the medical personnel as well as scientists for their efforts in combating the pandemic.

Murray wrote, “Got my 3rd microchip injected into me today. Joking aside..science is the best. Thank you, scientists, thank you doctors and health care workers for the incredible work you are doing.”

The three-time Grand Slam champion will be looking to make a solid start to the Australian summer next year. Hopefully, we’ll see Murray build on his exceptional performances in the latter half of the 2021 season, where he defeated the likes of Jannik Sinner, Carlos Alcaraz, and Hubert Hurkacz.

It was almost two years ago that Murray said an emotional goodbye during the Australian Open 2019. But he has since come back and shown glimpses of his former self and 2022 will be his first appearance at the Happy Slam since then.

When asked to comment on the situation of Novak Djokovic, Murray said he isn’t fully aware of Djokovic’s circumstances. The Serb hasn’t yet given confirmation about his availability for the Australian Open 2022.

Murray stated, “The latest I saw was that he was on the entry list, and I assume he’s playing and has been vaccinated. We were told they were the rules – if you want to play, you have to be vaccinated – so I’m assuming that’s what’s happened.”
