Amazon have announced a new documentary series charting Andy Murray‘s gruelling comeback from injury.

Murray spent nearly two years after Wimbledon 2017 working his way back to full fitness due to a chronic hip injury as he slid from world No 1 to the triple figures on the world rankings.

And while he rehabilitated, Murray gave Amazon exclusive behind-the-scenes access of his recovery.

The documentary, which will launch on November 29, includes interviews from the likes of his family and rivals Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

‘I knew I was at a critical point in my career,’ Murray said about the documentary. 

‘At times it felt like I was letting people down by not being able to perform on court, and I wanted to give them an insight into what I was going through. I wanted to show the ups and downs of professional sport.

‘The film will take you on a journey through what were some of the lowest, most difficult periods of my life both physically and mentally, and will hopefully show and inspire viewers, that with the right mindset and work ethic, anything is possible.’

Murray has since gone on to win his first singles title since he picked up the hip injury, claiming the European Open last month. 

‘This revealing documentary will take viewers on an emotional journey with Andy, giving them an inside look into the strength and determination of a true champion, as he fights his way back to the highest level of the sport after a near career-ending injury,’ added Martin Backlund, head of content for Amazon Prime Video, UK.
