Lockdown gave Judy Murray a taste of retirement, and she found she rather liked it.

While best known among the wider public for being Andy and Jamie's mother, Judy has been a one-woman task force for growing tennis in Scotland and for girls and women across the UK and globally.

Since her days as the national coach for Scotland, when she helped a group of young players including her sons to make it to the professional game, Judy has been immersed in the sport, but now she wants to take a step back.

"And of course he's older but I know how difficult it was for him when he was starting out. I would like to see a lot more emphasis on that, whether it's from the national governing bodies, the tours, the management companies or agents.

"I think there is a lot to be learned from the Osaka incident, and of course we have to be just as aware of helping players who have mental health issues as we are of the physical injury issues."
