Andy Murray remains no match against Serbian rival Novak Djokovic in the nearing US Open 2016, noted John and Patrick McEnroe. According to the legendary McEnroe Brothers, the no. 2 seed British champion won’t be able to outshine Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic’s court supremacy.
Though they believe Andy Murray performed great given his 22 successive wins in the past few months, the McEnroe Brothers still assume that the British champion doesn’t have the qualities like the three tennis superstars mentioned.
In addition to McEnroe Brothers’ assumptions, they believe Djokovic has recovered from his left wrist injury.
Djokovic has also affirmed the claims about his personal life. Based from the statements he uttered in a recent press conference, his private life matters were already resolved and won’t be distractions from his game.
In our previous report, we wrote about how these personal issues hindered his winning and resulted to his unexpected early exits from Wimbledon and Rio Olympics 2016 against underdogs no. 42 seed Sam Querrey and no. 141 seed Juan Martin del Potro from the US and Argentina, respectively.
After Djokovic’s decision to pull out from Cincinnati Masters, the McEnroe Brothers believe the 29-year-old Serbian champion has recovered from succeeding upsets and is prepared to become an invincible presence in the tennis court.
Regardless of how Murray performed in previous tournaments, John and Patrick McEnroe still believe in Djokovic’s endless domination in tennis. However, the brothers disagree with their predictions in some areas. John was open to Murray’s chances of winning, but Patrick wasn’t and remains unconvinced.
“Novak is the most obvious obstacle to Andy. He has been playing at a level the last couple of years that Murray has not been able to attain. That’s frustrated him, but things have changed the last couple of months,” John McEnroe said.
Will Andy Murray prove his strength against Novak Djokovic and succeed in the US Open 2016? Will he get the chance to stand alongside Federer, Nadal and Djokovic and prove wrong the negative assumptions about him?
