- Murray has been one of the very few in tennis who, in the best time of the big three, Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic, managed to measure up.
The Scottish tennis player’s match was simply epic Andy Murray in the framework of the Australian Open.
Murray He has been one of the very few in tennis who, in the best time of the big three, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal y Novak Djokovicmanaged to live up to it and even held the number one in the world, what a feat, since he did it in full of those mentioned in advance, in 2016 he remained at the top of tennis for 41 weeks, after having finished 2015 as number two in the ranking, he even defeated them all, he defeated 11 times Federer11 a Djokovic and seven to Nadal. He was proclaimed winner at the United States Open in 2012, and at Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016; I insist, he did it at the best moment of Roger, Rafa y Novak, to complement those historic triumphs, he was crowned by obtaining the Olympic gold medal in London 2012, as well as in Rio de Janeiro 2016. A fantastic, immense record, I insist, much more laudable considering the quality of his contemporaries. It is, without a doubt, the D’Artagnan of The Three Musketeers.
At 35 years old, Andy He seemed to be evicted from tennis, as injuries have taken their toll. Since 2017, his last full year, he has struggled with endless physical problems, surgeries, injuries and discomfort that heralded an inevitable end, because, although the soul and spirit, two of his great qualities, are still intact, the body is already He did not respond in the required dimension to be able to continue competing at the highest level.
Two hip operations, some elbow problems, as well as endless physical damage prevented him from continuing on tour regularly in 2018 and 2019, everything seemed to point towards retirement, because, for more preparation and determination, for one u another reason the physique prevented him from competing. At this stage, his best result in a Grand Slam was a third round at Wimbledon in 2021, but, despite this, he has not given up his efforts, his first two meetings in Melbourne speak of this, since in the first he battled for more than five hours to get rid of the Italian Matthew Berrettini14th in the ranking, and yesterday they defeated, with almost six hours of play, the local team, Thanasi Kokkinakis, having lost the first two sets and fighting a match point. The match ended close to dawn and, thus, the Scottish veteran added another golden page to his immense legend.
It is not for nothing that the British crown has named him a knight, his ability as a warrior, as was revealed yesterday, exalts him even more.
My most sincere admiration.
