‘If anyone can overcome this injury, Andy Murray can!’ – Brit backed by top coach to beat injury curse
Andy Murray has been tipped to overcome his injury hell by a top coach with a stellar résumé.
Murray appeared to have finally found a path to fitness last year when he had resurfacing surgery on his hip, and he even won a singles title in Antwerp in October.
He, though, hasn’t been seen on court since a solitary Davis Cup appearance in November.
However, he has been backed to beat his latest challenge by coach Jose Higueras, who has worked with Roger Federer, Pete Sampras, Jim Courier, and Michael Chang among others.
“Andy is a great player and someone who I enjoy watching because he plays an all-court game, which is the way I like to watch tennis,” Higueras told the BBC.
“One of the toughest things for me with athletes is when their careers are hindered by injury.
“I think it was a very unfortunate thing for him because he was at the top of his game when it happened.
“If there is no chance because of the nature of the injury then it’s out of his control.
“But I’m hoping that he can recover fully and if there is a chance then yes, I think he’s going to come back.
“If there’s a chance anyone can come back from an injury like that, I think Andy Murray will.”
