Andy Murray has voiced his frustration with missing out on tennis due to the Covid-19 pandemic, admitting that he is "getting old for a tennis player".

The thee-time Grand Slam champion is yet to play a singles match of a Grand Slam since undergoing hip surgery after the 2019 Australian Open. That in turn had been his first major appearance since Wimbledon 2017 due to a string of injuries.

"Missing the big competitions because I'm getting old for a tennis player, you never know how many opportunities you're going to have left to play the biggest competitions," he said.
