Amazon Prime has announced a new documentary centred around Andy Murray’s return to tennis after having hip surgery in January.

Andy Murray: Resurfacing, directed by Olivia Cappuccini, will chart the three-time Grand Slam champion’s return from injury and show behind-the-scenes footage of his rehabilitation from surgery in January 2019 to winning the European Open in October, as well as his surprise doubles appearance with Serena Williams at Wimbledon in July.

The documentary will be available on Amazon Prime from 29th November, and will feature in-depth interviews with friends and family members, as well as rivals Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

Murray said: “I knew I was at a critical point in my career. 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.”

Martin Backlund, Head of Content, Amazon Prime Video, UK, added: “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.”
