Murray believes in competition at the highest levels

Scotsman Andy Murray has confirmed that he can compete at the highest level after qualifying for the quarter-finals of the Stockholm Open.

 

Murray, the former world number one, defeated Italian Janek Sener in two sets without a response, 7-6 (7/4), 6-3 on Wednesday evening in the second round of the Stockholm Championships.

 

Murray, a three-times Grand Slam champion, scored his second win over a top 10 seed this year.

 

Murray has suffered a lot in recent years, especially since he underwent hip surgery in 2019, which kept him out of action for long periods, and many doubted his ability to regain his level.

 

"I am convinced that I can play well, I can play at the highest level and win against the best players in the world," Murray said.

 

Murray is currently ranked 143 in the world rankings and has won 15 this year to 13 defeats, but he has not won a title since October 2019.

 

"In the last few weeks I started to gradually progress," the Scottish star explained.
