There is no doubt which surface is the one that Andy Murray prefers to play on, and that surface - grass - may be the one where he will experience a major success in 2023.

In the past, the Scotsman lifted two out of his three Grand Slam titles on the grass courts of Wimbledon, winning in 2013 and 2016. Moreover, Murray won one of his two Olympics gold medals at the same venue and his grass-court abilities are well-known to all players competing on the ATP Tour.

During the 2023 season, Murray adjusted his schedule multiple times, and he also admitted that he's targeting a deep run at the 2023 Wimbledon, as his abilities on the surface are much better than those of his opponents.

Boris Becker, former world no. 1 and player that also won three Wimbledon titles, also thinks that Murray has the biggest chance to succeed in the All England Club, as he talked about fellow former world no. 1 and his recent comebacks to Eurosport.

"Simply incredible. I wouldn’t have expected him to come back that strong after his hip surgery. How he wrestles down his opponent, mostly over three sets, and also playing great tennis, as well in the final against Danill Medvedev."

After praising his qualities and comebacks at the 2023 Qatar Open in Doha, the German also said that he's looking forward to the only grass-court Grand Slam event in the calendar, as Murray will be able to showcase his qualities in full there.

“It is incredible how he managed to come back like this, and I want to look ahead a little bit. If he keeps on playing like this and winning matches, I’m looking forward to Wimbledon. I think he might be on a good level there - on his favourite surface, which is grass.”
