Monica Puig charges Murray: "He can do well at Wimbledon"

Andy Murray started the season with two thrilling matches at the Australian Open 2023 against Matteo Berrettini and Thanasi Kokkinakis in the fifth set before losing to Roberto Bautista Agut in four sets. Monica Puig talked about Murray's performance on the court and what he can give to tennis in the coming months.

Puig, former Olympic gold medal at Rio 2016, is a current commentator on TV. According to Puig, Andy Murray's rebirth took place at the Melbourne slam and therefore, consequently, he will be able to do just as well especially at Wimbledon, his home tournament which saw him triumph twice in the 2013 editions and 2016.

She analyzed: "Murray has won Wimbledon before. He has that on his side. The British tend to do very well in their country. A lot of people don't like playing on grass, I've heard that a thousand times, because it's very difficult and there's no are many events before to pick up the pace.

You need to adapt and need time on a surface, but the grass won't let you. This is one of his advantages of him and it is also an advantage that the points are not as long as on a hard court or a clay court, so he can exploit the shorter points.

He seems comfortable going online and knows what to do. He can be a force to be reckoned with. Having something to prove works for some people and not for others, but it definitely works for him. I believe he ran into a doctor who told him he could never play at this level again, and that he has been working to get back.

It's like he wants to prove that he's still up to it and he's proving it day after day and it shows that hard work pays off"

Words of praise for Murray

Finally, the Puerto Rican former player talked about the great career of sir Andy Murray: "We don't know how many years he will still be playing, but he is making every moment he takes to the court pay off.

He certainly has a very strong character and I think mentally he is very, very strong. He won two Olympic gold medals in a row, won the US Open and won Wimbledon twice. Being British and winning Wimbledon is a huge thing. It's very difficult for many players to be successful and play well in their own country and he succeeded and stoked this fire."
