Andy Murray has been warned through pundit Peter Fleming of 3 gamers he will have to be nervous about at Wimbledon if the Scot recovers from his damage in time to compete. Murray picked up an belly damage in his Stuttgart Open ultimate defeat to Matteo Berrettini, and used to be dominated out of competing at Queen’s this week.
Fleming used to be commentating for BBC all through their protection of Berrettini’s 6-3, 6-3 Queen’s first-round victory over Brit Dan Evans, and used to be requested which gamers he would put above the Italian forward of Wimbledon. “Well, I would put [Novak] Djokovic above him, if [Rafael] Nadal plays he goes up there,” the American said before he was asked if Murray would feature in that last spot.
“No, I wouldn’t put him above Berrettini. I think that Andy is of danger, he is definitely the sort of guy that nobody is going to want to play but to expect him to win seven matches, best of five sets, that is asking a lot at this point don’t you think?
“I don’t think that it matters that much whether he is seeded or not because he has played all these matches, he should be sharp going into his first-round match.
“If he had to play a seed in the first round, nobody is going to want to have to do that. No one is going to want to play him, so if he wins that match, because he would expect to beat a lot of seeds, now he is right in the seeds draw.
“If you are going to go deep you are going to have to beat a seed at some point.”
Murray would had been seeded if he used to be victorious in Stuttgart, however after struggling an damage early within the 3rd set he used to be defeated 6-4, 5-7, 6-3. On Monday the Scot showed he picked up an damage and would omit Queen’s, an match that Murray has prior to now received 5 instances.
“After having a scan this afternoon, an abdominal injury means I won’t be fit to compete at Queen’s this year,” Murray mentioned. “The tournament means a lot to me, and it’s disappointing not to compete, especially after playing some good matches on the grass already.”
Ahead of Wimbledon, Murray has known as at the media to let teenage celebrity Emma Raducanu “be who she is”, as she is ready to compete on the match for the primary time since turning into a most sensible 15 participant. “I think there needs to be a level of trust and respect between the player and the media,” he advised Matt Graveling.
“I also had problems early in my career where maybe certain things that I said got taken out of context or jokes that I might have made turned into big stories and big headlines where it turned things a bit sour and negative.
“Just let her be who she is, and you know, she might say some things that are a joke or that she maybe doesn’t mean or whatever.”
