Former British No 1 Tim Henman doesn’t believe Andy Murray will win another Grand Slam.
The 34-year-old Murray has been outside the world’s top-100 since May 2018 as he’s struggled with hip issues in recent years.
Murray, a former world No 1, is currently down at No 121 in the ATP rankings but has shown signs of returning to form in recent weeks.
Murray has made it clear that he’d like to make a surge up the rankings.
However, Henman doesn’t believe the Scot can win another major championship.
“In my opinion, for him to win best of five set matches, seven times, over a fortnight with a metal hip is a step too far,” Henman told talkSPORT.
“I say that also knowing that he loves to prove people wrong and I’d be delighted if he proved me wrong.”
Murray’s three Grand Slam titles include the 2012 US Open and 2013 and 2016 Wimbledon titles.
Henman, though, did acknowledge that Murray’s game had showed an upwards curve in recent months.
“He’s played some quality players – (Stefanos) Tsitsipas in New York was an example, he’s played (Hubert) Hurkacz twice, including in the semis in France in a tour event.
“His game is definitely trending in the right direction and if he can stay injury free without any other niggles or setbacks, I think his game is going to get better and better.”

Murray’s next tournament is the Indian Wells Masters where has been handed a wild card.
Murray’s best effort in the Californian desert was making the final in 2009 when he lost 6-1, 6-2 to Rafael Nadal.
