Former World No.1 Andy Murray is leaving no stone unturned to prepare for the upcoming 2023 Wimbledon Championships. The 36-year-old Brit, who withdrew from the French Open to focus on his home Grand Slam, is currently playing Challenger Level tournaments to get the required exposure before arguably the biggest spectacle in tennis.

A two-time Champion on the hallowed grass courts of Wimbledon, Murray has now revealed the heartfelt message his wife Kim Sears sent to him following Novak Djokovic’s record-breaking 23rd Grand Slam title win at Roland Garros last week.

In an interview following his first-round win in a Challenger event at Nottingham, Murray revealed his wife was proud of him for winning, be it at any level. “She said, ‘I’m just watching Novak on the news, seeing that he won in Paris and I’m so proud that you’re still grinding it out in Challengers and still working as hard as you know you ever have done.’ That means a lot to me,” said Murray.

Before the beginning of the third Major of the year, Murray is looking in great shape. The World No.44, who has made an unbelievable comeback following a career-threatening injury, won the Surbiton Trophy last week. Murray is currently taking part in the Challenger event in Nottingham, for the first time since 2006.

It is already a commendable effort to see Murray playing tennis after what his body has gone through over the recent years. However, as we all know, the Brit isn’t just convinced by mere participation and wants to showcase his prime form again that saw him claim 3 singles Grand Slam titles and 2 Olympic gold medals before the hip injury hampered his flourishing career.
