Judy Murray OBE, former Scottish international tennis player with 64 national titles to her name, will also deliver a Presidential Guest Lecture at the ESSKA Congress.  Her son, Andy Murray, has recently undergone surgery which he hopes will allow him to play at Wimbledon this summer and restore him to near the high point of his career in late 2016 when he began a run of 37 weeks as world Number 1.
