Former World No.1 Andy Murray is known for his outstanding on-court achievements while he is an outspoken supporter of feminism in the off-court. However, now the former coach Amelie Mauresmo admits that Andy Murray is very thoughtful.
The two-time Grand Slam champion from France trained Murray for two years from 2014 to 2016. During that period, Former WTA No.1 guided Brits to reach the 2015 Australian Open’s final. Murray especially won his first career clay-court title at the 2015 Madrid Masters after defeating King of Clay Rafael Nadal in the straight sets.
“He’s a brilliant guy on and off the court. Even if we sometimes want to shake him on the court when he has this attitude that annoys us, he’s a really extraordinary guy. He deserves to be known,” Amelie Mauresmo said during her appearance in Dip Talk, the Eurosport podcast.
“He has an extraordinary intelligence, humour, and above all, an exact vision of himself, without concession, especially on what he is accomplishing. It went very well with Andy. The exchanges were excellent. It was a very nice experience,” the 41-years-old tennis coach added.
Andy Murray Withdraws From Australian Open 2021
After having recovered from COVID-19, Andy Murray is in training but has announced that he would not travel to Down Under this year for Australian Open after failing to find a workable quarantine, which would allow him to be ready to compete in the tournament.
“Gutted to share that I won’t be flying out to Australia to compete at the Australian Open. We’ve been in constant dialogue with Tennis Australia to try and find a solution which would allow some form of workable quarantine, but we couldn’t make it work”, Andy Murray said.
The five-time finalist of Aussie Open continued, “I want to thank everyone there for their efforts. I’m devastated not to be playing out in Australia. It’s a country and tournament that I love.”
