Former British tennis player, Tim Henman, has said that Andy Murray would take his game to the next level and would win many more titles in the upcoming season. The 2012 season was the best season for Murray so far in his career. He won the gold medal in the men’s singles competition of the London Olympics and then, won his maiden Grand Slam title by defeating Novak Djokovic in the final of the US Open. Henman believes that it’s only the start for the 25 years old Scottish superstar and he will ultimately become one of the greatest players in tennis history.
When Henman was asked about Murray’s performance in the 2012 season, he said, “It was a fantastic season for Andy; no doubt about that. But, I personally believe that he is capable of performing much better than that. He has got enormous potential and his temperament has also improved quite a lot in the last one year. He can beat any player in the world on his day.”
“He is not too far away from becoming the no. 1 player in the world. Roger Federer has been a bit inconsistent in the recent times and we don’t know how Rafael Nadal is going to play after that severe knee injury. So, there is a good possibility that Andy would reach the top of the rankings at some point of time in the next season.”
Henman also hailed Murray’s coach Ivan Lendl and said that he has helped Murray a lot in improving his game. Henman said, “Murray’s coach has done a fantastic job. He detected the technical weaknesses in Murray’s game and helped him rectify those weaknesses.”
Murray and his coach are currently in Miami where they are preparing for the Australian Open.
