Video: Andy Murray rolls back the years with superb forehand winner against Hurkacz in Vienna

Despite undergoing several surgeries to prolong his tennis career, including one that saw him acquire a metal hip, Andy Murray has shown no little sign of slowing down as was evident in his match against Hubert Hurkacz at the Erste Bank Open Vienna.

The three-time Grand Slam was engaged in a thrilling opening round match against the current World No.10, with Murray having taken the first set. With the score tied at 3-3 in the second, Hurkacz approached the net and hit a volley into the open court.

This shot would have produced a winner against 90% of players, much less a 34-year old with a metal hip. However, Murray miraculously made it across the court, before hitting a delightful forehand passing shot that was reminiscent of his younger days.

The former World No.1 would go on to win the match in three tight sets, proving to his doubters that he can still compete with the best players in the world.
