The Andy Murray: Resurfacing documentary will be aired this week on Amazon Prime Video. It elucidates Andy’s bounce-back from the tragic incident in his career. The director Olivia Cappuccini has portrayed “a love story between Andy and the game”.
Three-time Grand Slam champion, Andy Murray made a winning return to the ATP circuit after his hip resurfacing operation in February, by collecting the doubles title at Queens and then the singles title in Antwerp.
“In my mind, the film is a love story between Andy and the game. He was in so much pain he couldn’t even walk properly, yet he was willing to do anything possible to keep playing, even putting himself through more pain,” she said.
The trailer seems to be emotional and all the tennis followers will get to know about Murray’s comeback journey which was certainly a bumpy ride.
Former World Number one, Murray was on the verge of giving up his tennis career in December 2018 and announced that his departure from tennis drawing close to him at Australian Open 2019, but fortunately his tennis comeback was flourishing.
“It’s complex, like all relationships. He loves the sport, yet when he wins his greatest titles it looks like he’s relieved – it doesn’t look like a sense of joy or euphoric catharsis that he so deserves and to this day I’m not sure if he’s enjoyed his accolades or achievements as he should,” she added.
Andy Murray showed up on the singles after playing a handful of doubles tennis tournaments. He was first seen on the singles hard courts Cincinnati, but he was disappointed with his performance there. Moving forward with dejected emotions, Murray played at Rafa Nadal challenger in Majorca, Spain.
Post that, he began winning on the ATP Tour and eliminated the eight seed, Matteo Berrettini in China which was his biggest comeback victory. Later in Antwerp finals, he played a rollercoaster final match against the three-time Grand Slam champion, Stan Wawrinka and held his first title after the back resurfacing.
