Andy Murray is highly regarded as one of the most talented and formidable competitors on the tour, having clinched three Grand Slam titles to his name. However, the Brit experienced a stagnant season this year after he was unable to deliver promising results.
Despite experiencing a rough patch this season, Murray’s skill set has never ceased to amaze fans. Most recently, the 36-year-old was lauded for executing a perfect forehand during his hardcourt practice session.
Andy Murray recently uploaded a video on his official Instagram handle where he could be seen practicing his forehand. During one such groundstrokes drill, the Brit aimed at hitting a tennis ball can with his forehand, and surprisingly, Murray knocked the can with his breathtaking forehand skill.
