He can have another good run in Slam

Tim Henman is confident that Andy Murray can make another deep Grand Slam run before he retires. Murray, 35, is a three-time Grand Slam champion. Murray, who has had two major hip surgeries in the last five years, hasn’t had a strong Grand Slam run since reaching the Wimbledon quarterfinal in 2017.

“Being a professional tennis player is the best job in the world and while you are still enjoying it and the challenges that go with it, you should play for as long as you want,” Henman told Tennis365. “He has been able to play a consistent schedule without having too many physical setbacks.

He is back inside the top 50 and he only scratching the surface. He will get back into the top 32, he will be seeded in the Slams, will get protection through the draws. With the players he has beaten of late, there is no doubt in my mind that he can have another good run in a Slam.”

Murray was extremely disappointed after Wimbledon

Even before the season started, Murray noted the big focus would be on Wimbledon. Murray felt Wimbledon was the Grand Slam where he would have the best chance of making a strong Grand Slam result in 2022.

Unfortunately for Murray, his grass season didn’t go quite as he was hoping. Murray actually got off to a good start to the grass season as he reached the Stuttgart. During the Stuttgart final, Murray sustained an abdominal injury and was beaten by Matteo Berrettini.

The injury forced Murray to skip Queen’s and his preparation for Wimbledon was negatively impacted. At Wimbledon, Murray defeated James Duckworth in the first round. After overcoming Duckworth, Murray suffered a disappointing four-set defeat to John Isner in the second round.

Murray, who skipped this year’s French Open, will be playing his third Grand Slam of the season at the US Open. Murray’s runs at the Australian Open and Wimbledon ended in second round defeats.
