In 2019, Andy Murray faced a challenging phase in his career, considering a second hip surgery to alleviate pain rather than prolong his tennis journey. He aimed to endure until Wimbledon, yet acknowledged the Australian Open might be his final event, uncertain if he could withstand the pain for months. During this period, he highlighted the immense respect he commanded in tennis. Figures like Juan Martín del Potro, Kyle Edmund, Billie Jean King, and his ‘Big Four’ contemporaries paid tribute to Murray, recognizing his exceptional contribution to the sport and the grit he displayed throughout his career.

Initially planning to skip the Spring clay season, Murray reversed his decision and accepted a wildcard into the 2022 Madrid Open in April. He demonstrated his competitive edge by defeating Dominic Thiem and Denis Shapovalov in the first two rounds, setting up a much-anticipated match against Novak Djokovic.
