Former British No. 1 Tim Henman hopes he’s wrong, but doesn’t believe Andy Murray will win another Grand Slam.

Murray’s career of late has been blighted by injury problems with an eventual hip resurface operation.

“In my opinion, for him to win best of five set matches, seven times, over a fortnight with a metal hip is a step too far,” Henman told London-based talkSPORT.

“I say that also knowing that he loves to prove people wrong and I’d be delighted if he proved me wrong.

“Can he win on tour? Yeah I think he can. You look at the way he has played recently and you look at the way he’s played since Queens when he’s been back on the match court, I think he’s shown a lot of improvement.

“He’s played some quality players – [Stefanos] Tsitsipas in New York was an example, he’s played [Hubert] Hurkacz twice, including in the semis in France in a tour event.

“His game is definitely trending in the right direction and if he can stay injury free without any other niggles or setbacks, I think his game is going to get better and better.”

Murray is in action this week at Indian Wells as a wildcard in the main draw.
