Amazing Murray triumphs in Antwerp

Who said Sir Andy Murray’s career was over? Well, Andy Murray did, but it seems he was quite wrong. Nine months on from undergoing hip surgery in a desperate attempt to live pain-free and even prolong his remarkable tennis career, Murray has not only become the first player to resume top-level singles after effectively receiving a new hip, but he has also now won the European Open in Antwerp, coming from behind to defeat fellow Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka in a close fought final. 961 days on from his last title, Murray describes this as one of the biggest wins of his career, and he now heads off to next month’s new look Davis Cup finals in Madrid to represent Great Britain for the first time since 2016, which is just as well given the lack of form that Kyle Edmund and Dan Evans are showing. And then it’s hopefully onwards and upwards into 2020, and who knows, another Wimbledon title?
