McEnroe: Murray Still Among Best at Wimbledon


Tennis legend John McEnroe has backed Andy Murray to be a contender for the Wimbledon title this year. 

Murray, who won the Wimbledon title in 2013 and 2016, is currently ranked 68th in the world. However, McEnroe believes that Murray’s experience and pedigree on grass could make him a dark horse for the title. 

“Andy Murray is still one of the best players on grass,” McEnroe said. “He has a great record at Wimbledon, and he knows how to win there. He’s also been playing well recently, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he made a deep run in the tournament.” 

Murray has been in good form in recent weeks. He reached the final of the Stuttgart Open and the semifinals of the Queen’s Club Championships. He is also the defending champion at the Surbiton Trophy, which he won last year. 

Murray has not won a Grand Slam title since 2016. However, McEnroe believes that he is still capable of winning major titles. 

“I think Andy Murray still has the potential to win a Grand Slam,” McEnroe said. “He’s a great player, and he’s got the experience and the pedigree to win big tournaments. I wouldn’t be surprised if he won Wimbledon again this year.” Murray will be seeded 24th at Wimbledon this year. He will face James Duckworth in the first round. McEnroe’s comments are a boost for Murray, who is looking to add to his Wimbledon title tally this year. He will need to be at his best if he wants to win the title, but he has the game to do it.
