‘I’m extremely happy for him’ – Roger Federer gives verdict on Andy Murray comeback
Roger Federer has hailed Andy Murray after his remarkable achievement of winning the European open last week.
Murray overcame Federer’s countryman Stan Wawrinka in Antwerp to win his first singles crown since undergoing hip resurfacing surgery at the start of the year.
It caps an incredible story considering Murray essentially announced his retirement in Australian in January due to injury.
Federer was one of the players who featured in a tribute video for Murray, which was played on court after his first-round defeat in Melbourne.
However, speaking at ATP Basel, Federer couldn’t speak highly enough of his old rival.
“Andy’s achievement was great,” Federer said of Murray.
“I was a little bit torn, since he beat Stan in the final, but it was a great way for him to come back.
“He’s been playing to try and get close to his old level.
“It’s nice to see Andy Murray healthy again. I remember in the locker room of the Australian Open.
“It was very confusing for him and for all of us. I’m extremely happy for him.”
