The Scot is back. After a title drought that saw Andy Murray go over two years without a singles trophy (Dubai in February of 2017), the former world No. 1 captured the Antwerp title.
Coming back to the tour at Queen's Club in June after nearly five months of recovering from surgery, Murray struggled to regain his match toughness. He made just one quarterfinal in six events until arriving in Antwerp. He defeating Stan Wawrinka in the final, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, marking his third three-setter in three days.
If fans are wondering how the hip is feeling, the 32-year-old says not to worry.
“My hip is fine. There’s no pain there anymore, which is amazing," he said. "I guess there shouldn’t be because it’s metal, there’s no pain receptors or anything in the metal, so that’s brilliant."
Of course, it wasn't just Murray who was emotional after the victory.
At No. 127, Murray is firmly within the Top 150 for the first time since May 2018.
