Murray Sets Sights on Singles Return This Season
FormerNo 1 goes for singles return; United States Open resurgence not likely this year.
Andy Murray has actually set his sights on a singles return this season though it’s not likely the previousNo 1 will play the United States Open.
The previous world No 1 will go back to the court for the very first time given that January partnering 2017 Queen’s Club champ Feliciano Lopez in doubles at next week Fever-Tree Championships on the historical lawn of Queen’s Club.
The 32- year-old Murray, winner of a record 5 singles titles at Queen’s Club, went through hip resurfacing surgical treatment following his Australian Open exit and has actually been developing his physical fitness ever since.
“I’m feeling good, pretty much pain-free and enjoying just training, practicing, improving all the time just now,” Murray stated in remarks released by BBC. “I do not believe when Wimbledon ends up that I will simply step on to the singles court the following week and whatever’s excellent.
“At this moment I’ve been progressing all of the time. At some stage, it’s probably going to plateau for a while before I’m able to kick on.”
Continuing his healing from surgical treatment to set up a metal implant in his best hip, Murray has actually basically dismissed a Wimbledon and United States Open singles return, however, states he might possibly play doubles at The Championships.
“I hope at some stage this year I would be able to get back to playing singles again,” Murray stated. “I’m not really interested in putting a time limit on it because I’m quite happy just now.”
Murray hit at Wimbledon with pal Nick Kyrgios last month causing speculation they might partner in Wimbledon doubles. Murray has actually not played a singles match given that acquiescing Roberto Bautista Agut in his Australian Open opener in January.
“So I don’t need to play singles after Wimbledon or at the US Open to—you know, enjoy doing what I’m doing just now,” Murray stated. “If I can, that would be brilliant, but I don’t think that’s going to be the case. I think it’s going to take a bit longer.”
