Andy Murray returned to Wimbledon hoping to put his injury problems behind him and win the title for a third time but fell short, losing in the second round 4-6, 6-7(4-7), 7-6(7-3),4-6 to John Isner.
It has been a long few years for Murray as he struggled with injury and only competed in seven of the last 18 Grand Slam tournaments. During that period he’s only made it to the third round of a competition once, last year at Wimbledon, and finds himself at 52 in the world rankings as he arrives in SW19.
His ATP tour results are not much better with the Brit again failing to make it past the third round in any of the ATP Tour Masters 1000 events and only competing in 10 of a possible 36 tournaments.
Let us not forget that Murray is a former US Open winner and two time Wimbledon winner as well as being a former world number one. His pedigree speaks for itself and there have been sparks of life from the 35 year old including climbing back into the top 50 for the first time since 2018 and reaching the Stuttgart Open Final in June of this year before being beaten by Matteo Berrettini.
It has not been a fantastic few years for Murray and that trend continued at Wimbledon with a loss against Isner, currently ranked at 20 in the world.
