It’s been a rough few months with illness and injury, but Andy Murray believes he has come in to the clay court season in 2017 ‘in a better place’ than he did in 2016 when he ended up reaching the French Open final.
Murray joined Catherine Whitaker on the Tennis Podcast and described his season so far, his hopes for the clay court season, and the challenge of staying at World No 1.
The interview took place at The Queen’s Club - home of the Aegon Championships which Murray has won a record five times. What is he expecting from the grass court season? Why does Queen’s work for him so well as preparation for Wimbledon which he also won last year? Murray, who begins his Queen's title defence on Tuesday 20th June (Tickets - po.st/QueensTickets), explains.
Murray also talks about the progress of fellow British players Johanna Konta, Kyle Edmund and Dan Evans, as well as how he hopes to play Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal at some point this year.
The Tennis Podcast is a weekly, downloadable tennis radio show presented by Catherine Whitaker (Eurosport) and David Law (BBC 5 Live, BT Sport), with daily editions during the Grand Slams. It is produced in association with Telegraph Sport and Eurosport.
