Chris Evert, who joins McEnroe as part of ESPN’s coverage of Wimbledon next week, just wants to see Murray celebrated by the home crowd on his first return to a singles match at SW19 for four years.
“He’s drawing inspiration from these other champions that are also middle or late 30s. Like Serena even. If they can do it, I can do it,” she said.
“What I see is a passionate man. He’s so passionate about his tennis. I saw the first match at Queen’s, he looked great. He was moving well. He was serving well. Everything looked good, pretty sharp, considering he hasn’t played at all. I don’t know what happened the second match.
“I think at this point, Wimbledon and the Brits should rejoice that he’s out there and celebrate that she’s still out there playing, giving his heart and soul to a game that he clearly and dearly loves.
“I mean, anything’s icing on the cake as far as I’m concerned with Andy Murray.”
