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 the 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 nearly career-ending injury.”
