Murray was stuck in traffic, so the tennis star had time to answer some questions.

As Andy Murray continues to prepare for the 2019 season, the British tennis star found some time while stuck in traffic to answer the questions the fans are itching to ask.

The 31-year-old, who has won three grand slam titles in his career, has been recovering from hip surgery and hopes to make a strong return in January.
