Andy Murray looking forward to US and French Opens

Two-time Wimbledon champion Andy Murray is plotting a schedule that will see him arrive at the US Open in the best shape as he is looking forward to competing at the Grand Slams again.  

Murray said he is on the right path to playing at the highest level again after a seven-month layoff due to hip problems. The Scot came through a physical encounter with Kyle Edmund at the ‘Battle of the Brits’ unscathed on Wednesday 24th June 2020.

“To be honest, I am not bothered about the results of the match, after a match like that I hope my hip is OK, and I pull up well from it, I know if my hip is good, my tennis will only improve and get better over the next few months. If I can get consistent practice.”

“That is my hope. The hip feels good. If I play like that and do a few things better, sharpen up a couple of things, I will play high-level tennis. My groin is a little bit sore today, I felt it in practice and at the beginning of my match, but as the match went on, it felt alright.” He further said

Murray was playing just his second match since November following a bruised bone but looked in good condition against the world No 44.

The world No 85 is, however, looking at the much longer-term as he plots his return to the ATP Tour at Washington (US Open) in the middle of August.

“I am trying to avoid playing back-to-back events, my priority is to be fit for the grand slams. If you are completing two or three days beforehand, then maybe it’s not the hip, it’s your elbow, shoulder, ankle.” Murray said

“After what I have gone through in the last few years, and not being able to compete at any of the majors, I want to have a few more cracks at them. Get to compete at them. Even if it is for one last time.” He further stated
