New film to show ‘some of the lowest, most difficult periods’ of Andy Murray’s life

A new documentary is set to show ‘some of the lowest, most difficult periods’ of Andy Murray’s life.

The feature-length account will chart the Dunblane-born tennis star’s painstaking rehabilitation from a chronic hip injury that threatened to end his career.

The Amazon documentary claims to have near constant access to the most intimate aspects of the Wimbledon champion’s life over two years to create a “a candid, personal portrait” of Murray “at his most vulnerable”.

The father of three underwent multiple surgeries on his hip in 2018 and 2019, before admitting publicly that the injury had caused him to consider retirement.

“At times it felt like I was letting people down by not being able to perform on court,” the 32 year old said, “and I wanted to give them an insight into what I was going through.

“The film will take you on a journey through what were some of the lowest, most difficult periods of my life both physically and mentally, and will hopefully show and inspire viewers, that with the right mindset and work ethic, anything is possible.”

Producers said the documentary will feature “in-depth” interviews with Murray’s family, his team members, and his biggest rivals – including Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

In 2017, Murray was forced to pull out of several tournaments, including the US Open, after pain from his chronic hip injury left him struggling to put on his shoes and socks.

The decision lost him his World No.1 title, before costing him his British No 1 ranking to Kyle Edmund in early 2018. The father of three underwent multiple surgeries on his hip in 2018 and 2019, before admitting publicly that the injury had caused him to consider retirement.

But, after returning to competitive tennis this year, last month Murray defeated Stan Wawrinka in the final of the European Open to claim his first title since 2017. Earlier this month it was announced that he had been selected to represent Great Britain at the 2019 Davis Cup finals.

The film will be available to Amazon Prime Video subscribers on Friday November 29 2019.
