"Second week is realistic" - Henman predicts strong Wimbledon from Andy Murray

Five years have passed since Andy Murray featured in the second week at Wimbledon, but Tim Henman believes that could change this year.

Appearances in ATP finals in Sydney and Stuttgart this year highlighted Murray’s return to the top of the game and speaking to Tennis365 Henman admitted he could see Murray going deep. He explained:

“His level of play has got better and better and a run deep into the second week is realistic now. I think the way that he has really started to move has been incredible to watch. His resilience phsycially and mentally is incredible. It was 2017 that he was No 1 and defending champion and then he limped out of the tournament. Then he had four years of just enormous challenges trying to get back on the tour. To see him now in Tour finals in Sydney and Stuttgart is incredibly impressive."

Henman further added:

“On grass, no doubt (he has a chance to put a good run together). The other surfaces are harder for him as there are so many very, very good hard and clay court players. On grass, it is still a little bit more specialised so he can go deep at Wimbledon.

Murray himself admitted recently that his injury is improving albeit it's not going perfectly.
