Andy Murray: Resurfacing documentary coming to an Amazon Prime Video screen near you
Coming to a small screen (or smart device if you are that way inclined) near you in the next few weeks, a documentary entitled “Andy Murray: Resurfacing“, which details the former world No 1’s remarkable comeback from a career-threatening hip injury.
The feature-length documentary will be available on Amazon Prime from November 29 and it will show behind-the-scenes footage of the Scot’s rehabilitation.
Three-time Grand Slam winner Murray has struggled with a hip problem for most of his career, but things went downhill after Wimbledon 2017 and he spent the bulk of the next two years on the sidelines.
Having undergone hip resurfacing surgery at the end of January this year, he made a tentative return to doubles and mixed doubles in June before stepping up to singles in August.
Nearly two months later and he was back in the winner’s circle as he won the European Open.
And his journey will now be available for all to see.
“I knew I was at a critical point in my career,” Murray said about the documentary.
“At times it felt like I was letting people down by not being able to perform on court, and I wanted to give them an insight into what I was going through. I wanted to show the ups and downs of professional sport.
“The film will take you on a journey through what were some of the lowest, most difficult periods of my life both physically and mentally, and will hopefully show and inspire viewers, that with the right mindset and work ethic, anything is possible.”
The documentary has interviews with his family, team members as well as fellow players Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
Martin Backlund, head of content for Amazon Prime Video, UK, added: “This revealing documentary will take viewers on an emotional journey with Andy, giving them an inside look into the strength and determination of a true champion, as he fights his way back to the highest level of the sport after a near career-ending injury.”
