Andy Murray's Practises His Shots Wearing The Aircast A60 Ankle Support
Andy Murray's success on the tennis court is not just down to raw talent. As anyone playing sport knows, practice plays a crucial part in developing that natural talent and honing the skills you need to demolish opposition and plunder the trophy cabinets.
Andy Murray is no exception. It's his dedication to training that has led to his current world number 2 ranking, and inevitably to his world no 1 ranking (if you are reading this article in a month or two's time, after his 2013 victory at Wimbledon following a 6 hour epic battle with Djokovic...probably).
Andy Murray's exceptional footwork on the court allows him to reach balls that mere mortals normally stand and watch fizz by. But hours of practice on hard surfaces take their toll on the ankles and there is a real risk of ankle rollover, especially on sliding shots or slippery surfaces.
Which Ankle Support Does Andy Murray Wear?
This is why Andy Murray puts his trust in the Aircast A60 Ankle Support. Take a look at him practising his backhand in this video wearing a pair of these elite ankle supports:
The Aircast A60 Ankle Support, as worn by Andy Murray, is a lightweight ankle support brace that conforms to the shape of the foot and ankle and has an incredibly low profile. This means that you can wear the Aircast A60 in your trainers or sports shoes without any uncomfortable tightness or squeezing.
There are two lateral stays (running down the left and right side of the ankle). These plastic splints support that ankle and in most cases prevent the rollover of the ankle (when the ankle gives way and collapses, possibly leading to a sprain).
The exceptional support provided by the Aircast A60 Ankle Support is why elite sportsmen and women choose this support to protect their ankles, and stay in the game.
