“I am really happy for Andy,” McEnroe added. “I don’t know how he could possibly do it. He has got a metal hip and you think he was number one six years ago and what has happened since and the battles he has had, 99 out of 100 guys would have quit I think.
“But he loves it, and he loves the competition of it and he deserves it. I think the last six months watching him, even though he last lost a bunch of these matches, he looked better, he looked like ‘Oh man, sort of close to Murray when he can move’.
“If he can move he is one of the top five players in the world, certainly on grass, top ten at worst. I think he is in Novak’s 16 which isn’t the greatest thing but to me he is one of the top eight guys, but he is not in the best part of the draw.”
