"He is one of the toughest opponents out there, he never gives in": Robson believes Murray success is 'inevitible' despite Canadian Open setback

Laura Robson commented on Andy Murray's injury that forced him to withdraw from the Canadian Open just before his match against Jannik Sinner.
The former world No. 1 was having a promising run in Toronto, but a recurrence of his abdominal injury that had previously affected him before Wimbledon led him to make the decision to withdraw from the Canadian tournament.
Murray explained to his fans that the injury is not something serious and that he withdrew from the tournament as a precautionary measure:
“I had a very similar issue last year in the tournament in Stuttgart before Wimbledon which forced me to miss the Queen’s Club tournament and I was able to play Wimbledon,” Murray said.
“It took me about 10 to 12 days before I was feeling good again,”
“This is not as bad as that but obviously the danger if you compete and play on it is you make it worse,” he added.
“So, I’ll need to see how it develops over the coming days and hopefully feel better in a few days. I’m really sorry.”
Commentator and former tennis player Laura Robson referred to Murray's issues and stated that the 3-time Grand Slam champion is ready for the upcoming challenges and to compete against the best players in the world.
“He is playing so consistently now, playing week-in, week-out. The more matches he can play the better,” Robson said.
“He is one of the toughest opponents out there, he never gives in and he is great at working out matches as he goes."
“This is what he has been striving for in the last few years since his return. He is very much back up there again," she added.
“You thought maybe he was going to do it at Wimbledon, but it seems inevitable that it will happen at some point.
“The fact that he is still loving it as much as he does is a positive sign and for all the young lads coming up to see someone who has won as much as he has still competing as well as he did 15 years ago, that’s inspiring,” Robson concluded.
