Ross Hutchins says that Andy Murray has been his "rock" during his battle with cancer.

Former Davis Cup player Ross Hutchins has revealed that British number one tennis star Andy Murray has been an "incredible" support through his cancer battle.

The 28-year-old, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma six months ago, had his last bout of chemotherapy the week before Murray won the Aegon Championships at Queen's.

"[Murray] was the first guy outside of my family that I wanted to tell I had cancer," Hutchins told The Sun. "He was a guy who I felt could give me the belief and the strength in the toughest period right after diagnosis.

"He and Colin Fleming, my doubles partner, have been absolute rocks. If I was having a bad day in hospital they were there for me. If I needed five minutes for a chat, regardless of where Andy was in the world, he would make time for me. He has been incredible."

Meanwhile, Murray is due to face Lu Yen-Hsun in the second round at Wimbledon this afternoon.
