‘He will play top-level tennis again because he is that good’ – Andy Murray on Roger Federer’s return
Andy Murray sees no reason why Roger Federer can’t compete at the highest level again following his long injury layoff, adding he would back the 20-time Grand Slam winner’s skill against most players.
After more than a year on the sidelines following two knee operations, Federer will finally make his comeback at the Doha Open next week.
Murray is also on the comeback trail as he is still looking to rediscover his best form following career-saving hip surgery two years ago so he knows exactly how the 39-year-old Swiss will feel ahead of his return.
“I just want to get out and compete and just enjoy doing what I am doing. I imagine Roger would be the same,” the Scot said following his exit from the Rotterdam Open.
“I am sure he has been training hard and is excited to get back out there and compete. I am sure in time, providing that his body is good, that he will play top-level tennis again because he is that good. Even if there is a slight drop-off physically for him, I would back his skill against most players. I am sure he will be fine.”
