Mark Petchey, Andy Murray's former coach, says that the player's "confidence is high" following his win at Queens earlier this month.
He said Murray was "back to his best" and that his back problems that had plagued him have now subsided, and his health is "100 per cent".
Petchey, who was holding a pop-up tennis academy on London's South Bank, said the idea that tennis is a sport for the rich is "a myth", and that tennis coaching "needs to start in the schools".
He said: "Tennis at a grass roots level is not expensive, it's actually a very inexpensive sport. If you want to get good at it it's going to become expensive, but that's like life."
Mark Petchey was talking at the David Lloyd Leisure All Stars tennis pop-up at South Bank. If you'd like to get into tennis and for more information, go to: www.davidlloyd.co.uk
