Former World No.1 Andy Murray has often been suffering from groin pain since 2019, impacting his on-court performance. As a result, Scott has now perched out of 100 on the ATP ranking board. However, older brother Jamie Murray hopes the two-time Wimbledon champion can build momentum for himself during the upcoming grass-court season.
According to recent reports, Andy Murray will not play in this year’s French Open. As a reason, he felt discomfort after the matches in the Italian Open, where he surprisingly appeared in the doubles event along with countryman Liam Broady. At the same time, he has decided to compete in the Wimbledon series.
In a recent interview, Jamie Murray said that if his brother can get in good shape, he could be a robust contender in the men’s game at this moment.
“It has been frustrating for him. Obviously, he keeps getting niggles and stuff that has set him back. For him, he just needs to get a clear run of events, and that is what has been difficult for him for various reasons over the last few months,” Senior Murray added.
Andy Murray’s Game Is Good, says Brother Jamie Murray
The three-time Grand Slam winner has scheduled to begin his grass-court swing campaign at the Nottingham Open. The ATP Challenger Tour event runs from 5th to 13th June in Nottingham Tennis Center. Jamie emphasised that his brother awaits to pursue opportunities to prove himself.
“His game is good. He just needs the chance to compete. Hopefully, with the grass season coming up, he can get a good four or five weeks of tournaments under his belt and try to build up some momentum for himself,” the 35-year-old from Glasgow commented.
Most notably, Wimbledon 2021 will occur from 28th June to 11th July in London.
