Novak Djokovic reveals ‘special relationship’ with Andy Murray ahead of Wimbledon

Andy Murray in action

World number one Novak Djokovic has spoken of his ‘special relationship’ with Andy Murray after being quizzed on his thoughts on the Scot’s return to the tour.

Murray all but announced his retirement in January at the Australian Open as he admitted his attempted comeback from a hip injury had failed.

However, he has since undergone hip resurfacing surgery and has made a successful return in doubles competition, in which he won the title at Queen’s with Feliciano Lopez.

“It’s so great to see him back, smiling and enjoying and playing well and being healthy,” said Djokovic or Murray.

“We share a special relationship since we were 11, we’ve always respected each other and had some great battles.

“It’s what I told him in Australia and also after, when we texted each other a couple of times: I just hope we can see you back on the court, as do all of the other players.

“Andy has a great reputation on the tour for sure.”
