Andy Murray insists he IS still one of the world's best players on grass courts ahead of Wimbledon
Andy Murray insists he is still a top 10 player in the world on grass ahead of what could be his Wimbledon swansong and says the secret to his marathon-like physical state is sleeping in a separate bed to his wife.
Murray, who on Monday beat Korean Hyeon Chung on his grass-court return at Surbiton, skipped the French Open in a bid to focus on being in peak physical condition for the British swing. He did that too in 2013, when the Scotsman did something not done since Fred Perry in 1936.
In becoming the first homegrown Wimbledon mens singles winner in 77 years, Murray created an iconic moment that many British sport fans store in the same memory bank as England winning the cricket and rugby World Cup, or some storybook moments from the London Olympics in 2012.
Even the most optimistic of British tennis fans know that a repeat of 2013 is almost certainly above even Murray, 36, the marathon man with a metal hip. But the three-time Grand Slam winner knows this could be his last chance to write another sensational chapter in his story.
