Former world number one Andy Murray is set to play in the ATP Challengers event in Bordeaux next week to prepare for future events. The 36-year-old has struggled with fitness concerns throughout his career and it was because of this reason he decided to retire after the Australian Open in 2018.
However, after some time, Murray made a miraculous comeback and he is still playing at the highest level. The Glasgow-born star has been out of action since March after suffering an ankle injury. As per the latest report, the three-time Grand Slam winner is set to take part in the Challengers event in the French city where he will prepare for the ATP event in Geneva and then the French Open.
Recently, former women’s world number one Naomi Osaka heaped praise on Murray for showing ‘relentless’ attitude despite suffering multiple injuries. “Murray's such a great guy, such a tough competitor,” she said. “I think it's really amazing the fact that he loves tennis so much and he keeps coming back. He's had all these injuries. He's kind of relentless in a way. Just his ability to keep playing matches at a high level. For me, when I think about him, when I think about the legacy that he leaves on tennis - obviously he's done a lot for British tennis but as a kid watching him on TV playing these amazing battles, he's affected every tennis kid worldwide.”
