Sport.co.uk have today announced they are following Andy Murray’s return from injury and his pursuit of the Australian Open title in mid-January.
The Wimbledon Champ is the hot favourite to be voted SPOTY but will not be there because he does not want to disrupt his winter preparation in Abu Dhabi. Murray is looking to recover from the back surgery which ruled him out of the ATP World Tour Finals in November in time for the seasons first Grand Slam.
Sport.co.uk have been providing extra coverage as the Scot has won in New York, the Olympic Games and Wimbledon but it remains to be seen if his operation will have a positive effect on his chances in the new season. Murray, who enjoys playing on the hard courts was runner-up to Djokovic last year and would love to go one better. Rafael Nadal who came back from a prolonged injury has been virtually unbeatable in every tournament he has entered whilst it looks like the sun may finally be setting on the career of the great Roger Federer who has now slipped to 6th in the ATP rankings. Sport.co.uk will be covering the fortunes of Andy Murray like never before with news, interviews, features and great social media.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say, “We are extremely excited by the coming ATP seasons tennis and if it is even half as good as last year we are in for an absolute treat! Andy Murray has really warmed to the nation since his tears on Centre Court and winning Wimbledon will have joined the dots for his confidence and future success. We are extremely proud of the growth in usage of our site and believe that is mostly down to the hard work we have put in to ensure we have the very best coverage of the whole ATP tennis season. The success of Andy Murray has obviously created extra interest in Britain, this is a special time for British sport.”
