Murray wanted to show everyone “the ups and downs of professional sport”…
Amazon Prime Video UK will start streaming a new documentary this month that follows tennis legend Andy Murray through his “painstaking rehabilitation from injury, with access to his life and the inner sanctum of surgical theaters.”
Andy Murray: Resurfacing has been directed by Olivia Cappuccini and produced by John Battsek (Searching For Sugar Man) and will be on the service from 29th November. Viewers will see the Wimbledon champ going through intense hip surgery and rehab, which culminates in his reemergence into the professional arena.
“I knew I was at a critical point in my career,” said Murray of 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.”
Martin Backlund, Head of Content for 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.”
