Murray reached the last 32 at Wimbledon last month, in what was his first appearance at the tournament since a quarter-final defeat against Sam Querrey in 2017.

The Scot defeated 24th seed Nikoloz Basilashvili and qualifier Oscar Otte at SW19 this year, before suffering defeat to world number ten Denis Shapovalov in straight sets.

Murray, the former world number one who is now ranked 102nd, had initially questioned his future after the third-round loss to the Canadian, although Delgado believes he has reasons to be optimistic.

Delgado, who has worked with Murray since 2016, told The Herald: "He did very well physically - he came through three best of five-set matches. That is something he has not done in a very long time, so that is something we are all pleased with.

He added: "When he plays, people just know how much he loves the competition and how much he wants to win.

"Whether he is getting pumped up or getting frustrated, I think people can relate to that a lot.”

Murray has won two Olympic golds and the Davis Cup while competing for Great Britain and he is targeting more success at the recently-started Tokyo games.
