‘What Andy Murray has done is really inspirational,’ says long-term rival Novak Djokovic
Novak Djokovic has hailed Andy Murray as an ‘inspirational warrior’ after learning the full extent of his injury nightmare from the recent Resurfacing documentary.
The Amazon Prime Video movie, which features an interview with Djokovic, covers Murray’s two-year battle with his hip injury, in absolutely brutal detail.
Djokovic and Murray are just a week apart in age and have competed against each other since they were 12-years-old, so are very well-acquainted with each other.
However, Djokovic himself has only just seen the documentary, and he says what it chronicles is a remarkable feat of mental strength.
“I’ve seen his documentary about four, five days and it was tough to watch to be honest, as a tennis player, and as someone that knows him for a long time,” said Djokovic.
“To see what he has been through, I think it was a great insight into his last couple of years and the struggles he had, mental, emotional, physical.
“Just amazing warrior that he is in life really, to be able not to give up after everything that has happened and all the recovery and preparations and trying to heal and play a couple of matches in the whole season.
“And still after everything he’s been through in his career and having family at home, not give up on that and have support of the close ones, it’s really impressive and inspiring.”
