In a new post on the Players’ Tribune, Andy Murray opens up about Ross Hutchins’ and Elena Baltacha’s battles with cancer.
I got married the year I turned 28. In a few months, when Kim and I become parents for the first time, I’ll be 28. Twenty-eight feels like the beginning of something.
As a tennis player, 28 is an age at which I have much I still want to accomplish. 28 feels like a peak, a prime, a moment open with possibility.
28 is … it’s barely anything. It’s no time at all.
My best friend, Ross Hutchins, got cancer at 28.
I remember my exact internal reaction when I found out the news. It wasn’t stress. It wasn’t sadness. It was: Sorry, what?
