Recently, Andy Murray’s name was involved in a conversation. Spanish tennis player Feliciano Lopez was answer questions and the one question that caught my attention was when Feli was asked to name his three partners with who he has won an ATP doubles title.

Interestingly, Lopez got the first two names right, compatriot Fernando Verdasco and Marc Lopez. However, he was unable to guess the third player and after getting a clue that he was Scottish, he then guessed it. He went on to say, “Oh f… How can I miss that one?”

Coming to his season so far, Murray was supposed to compete at the Australian Open but couldn’t make it due to the COVID-19 restrictions. He made an appearance in Rome, where he was seen practicing with World No. 1 Novak Djokovic. He did compete in the doubles event but did not go too deep into the event.
