How the tennis community welcomed back ‘Scottish No 2’ Andy Murray
He may not have won his comeback match, but Andy Murray still received a warm welcome back.
The 31-year-old made his return to tennis after 11 months on the sidelines, going down in three tough sets to Nick Kyrgios in the opening round of the Queen’s Club Championships.
Here’s the official welcome back video from the Fever-Tree Championships, featuring words of encouragement from his brother Jamie and a few others.
