America’s tennis star Danielle Collins believes people do not understand how much agony Britain’s Andy Murray has endured in his career. The 36-year-old has struggled with fitness concerns throughout his career, and because of this, he announced his retirement after the end of the 2018 Australian Open.
However, Murray miraculously returned to the court after a few months and has still managed to keep playing at the highest level. The three-time Grand Slam winner has recently caught the attention of fans for getting frustrated on the court. Collins was recently quoted in a report where she highlighted that it's easy for people to criticise the behaviour of certain players on the court. Still, they often forget how much ‘physical agony’ Murray has gone through in his career.
“I think people have to remember with Andy, he’s in a lot of physical agony out there sometimes,” she said. “Especially in men's matches, these five-setters that go for hours and hours. If you have a couple of injuries that you've been dealing with and chronic health stuff, it's not easy. And of course, you're not going to go out there with a big grin on your face and just go, ‘Oh, thank you, I'm so grateful.’ You're going to have moments where you're mopey and things don't feel good, and you might be griping a little bit, that's just part of it. It’s like that in any profession but I think in our lives we have the cameras on us and then you have the people sitting in their basement judging.”
