Switzerland’s veteran tennis star Stan Wawrinka has heaped praise on the former world number one Andy Murray after he played what could be his last match at the Roland Garros. The 37-year-old lost in the opening round at the Roland Garros to Wawrinka in straight sets with a score of 6-4, 6-4, 6-2.
Murray has struggled with injury concerns throughout his career, and there have been rumours circulating that he will finally call it a day at the end of the current season. After securing the win, Wawrinka heaped praise on the three-time Grand Slam winners and expressed optimism that he will keep going a ‘little bit’ longer.
“I think Andy did everything he could since he arrived on tour,” he said. “Super young, he was an amazing fighter. He always found solutions. He's one of the hardest workers on tour. For more than 20 years, he always wanted to improve. He always improved his game. Like you say, at the French Open, he made the semifinal, went to the final, he became No. 1. He achieved everything a player could achieve in tennis. He's an amazing champion, amazing guy. I think he has a lot of fans, a lot of people started playing tennis because of him. I respect him a lot. I enjoyed playing him a lot the last 20 years. We played so many times, so many big battles. Hopefully he's going to keep going a little bit.”
