Wimbledon 2014: Andy Murray has got years left - Jimmy Connors
Thursday, 03 July 2014 - 14:55
Andy Murray will bounce back from his Wimbledon disappointment and compete for major titles for years to come, says eight-time Grand Slam champion Jimmy Connors.
On the same Centre Court where he ended Great Britain's 77-year wait for a men's singles champion last year, Murray gave a listless display in the quarter-finals as he was thrashed 6-1 7-6 (7-4) 6-2 by rising star Grigor Dimitrov.
In four Grand Slams since his Wimbledon triumph, Murray, 27, has not reached a final and has only got past the quarter-finals on one occasion, although he spent a large chunk of the last 12 months recovering from back surgery.
Although critical of Murray's "flat" body language during the match, Connors backed the Briton to return to the top, even though the would number five will slip further down the world rankings as a result of his defeat at SW19.
