Friends and allies of Andy Murray rallied round him on Monday in the wake of comments from former world No 1 Mats Wilander questioning whether he is right to maintain his latest comeback.

In the wake of his heavy defeat by Stan Wawrinka in the French Open first round, Wilander’s views were branded ‘pathetic’ by Dani Vallverdu, coach of the Swiss player.

Swedish legend Wilander, winner of seven Grand Slam titles, is never afraid to speak his mind and said Murray should look at whether it was right to take wildcards at the expense of younger players.

Vallverdu, a former coach and close friend of Murray now working with Wawrinka, was unimpressed, saying via Twitter: ‘He’s entitled to his opinion like I’m entitled to mine to think that’s absolutely pathetic from Mats.’

Nick Kyrgios, another of the Scot’s mates, gave a customarily robust response: ‘Shut up Mats, no one cares. Muzz, just know that however long you stay, we all appreciate and enjoy your tennis and banter. Also I’ve never watched a point of Mats Wilander.’

Jim Courier, the former Roland Garros champion currently working for ITV, was more measured, but argued: ‘I certainly think this isn’t the end of Andy Murray unless he wants it to be. He has more runway to play. He is realistic about what that looks like and I think everyone should be as well.

Lazio close to agreeing deal for Shkodran Mustafi

  Lazio close to agreeing deal for Shkodran Mustafi Shkodran Mustafi enjoyed a good run of form at the back end of last season but he suffered an injury which is set to leave him on the sidelines until around the end of October. With the signing of Gabriel Magalhaes, it is unlikely that the German defender will manage to earn his way back into the starting 11 after his injury and as such, Arsenal could let him leave during the current transfer window. Lazio are front runners for the World Cup winner and are trying to capture Mustafi for a fee of around £13 million.

‘Certainly Andy didn’t play his best — he knows that. He is very realistic and I think he is going to fare far better when playing on indoor courts that are a little quicker, that are lower bouncing.

‘Andy has every right to take wildcards if they are offered and tournaments have every right to give them to him if they want to.’

Anne Keothavong, captain of Britain’s Fed Cup (now Billie Jean King Cup) team, suggested that Murray could look to change his long-standing support staff.

Kyrgios might want to also fix up his haircut. It’s obnoxious and it is really really shit.” However Kyrgios has made a vow to keep up the tradition of

Wilander is one of the better pundits, although he will have a job to persuade people why a former member of the old ‘Big Four’ has not earned the right to choose the manner of his own departure.

An underlying issue is that under the temporary Covid ranking system — whereby earned ranking points are valid for two years rather than one — it is going to be harder for Murray to climb the rankings than in normal times. This will mean more requests for wildcards than would otherwise be the case as he tries to recover his former status.
