Yes, you read that right. Murray returns to O2 Arena from London.
If you wonder why is he here, look no further: he came to be the hitting partner of the World number 4, Dominic Thiem. The Austrian starts his second World Tour Finals campaign on Monday, when he will meet Grigor Dimitrov.
Murray’s presence here shows that he is willing to build his way up again and to work hard. It maybe proves that he will be able to be ready for next year’s Brisbane, as he plans.
Being a hitting partner is an advantage even for Sir Andy, when he is trying to regroup from his lengthy hip injury that got him sidelined since this year’s Wimbledon. Especially that he is practicing with one of the best in the world right now. Also, can take a lot of energy from the great atmosphere that this arena and this event have.
It’s strange how many things can change in just one year. The Scott was having a dream run last year that concluded with clinching the World number 1 spot. And he did that in the final of the World Tour Finals, defeating just the player he was taking the leadership from, Novak Djokovic.
Andy Murray’s brother, Jamie Murray, will be playing doubles in the elite tournament from London.
