Kyle Edmund: Andy Murray deserves to go out on a high
Kyle Edmund hopes Andy Murray will be able to end his playing career on his own terms, saying he deserves to “stop on a high”.
Having undergone career-saving hip surgery at the end of January, Murray will finally make his competitive return at Queen’s Club on Thursday.
However, for now he is only playing in the doubles and will partner Feliciano Lopez at the Fever-Tree Championships.
He has high hopes of also competing in the doubles at Wimbledon and the US Open before turning his attention to the singles later this year.
British No 1 Edmund says the three-time Grand Slam winner “deserves to get another go” at the top.
“One hundred per cent everyone will want to see him at Queen’s. He is a big name and he has been a big name for so long. There will be a lot of anticipation and I do not know how he is or how he is playing,” he told the Evening Standard.
“He’s playing doubles which I think is him breaking himself back in. He deserves to get another game and to go out playing. Everyone wants to stop on a high. He deserves that.”
