Former world number one tennis player Andy Murray’s mother, Judy Murray, said that due to a hamstring injury, Andy, who has been away from the court for some time, will not rush to return without being completely fit.
Judy, the former British captain in the Fed Cup, said that Andy Murray is eager to be fully fit.
Andy Murray was at the top of the ATP rankings in 2016, but due to his absence from the game after the operation of the hip at the beginning of this year, his ranking has decreased to 311. He is currently playing in selected tournaments.
Murray was currently playing in the Shenzhen Open in China. He lost in quarterfinals against Fernando Verdasco of Spain 4-6, 4-6.
The 31-year-old player will play in just one tournament after this tournament, which will be in Beijing.
What did Judy Murray say?
Judy, who arrived in China’s Cooperative in Wuhan Open in the city, said, “he’s (Andy Murray) doing well. He’s working with a rehab specialist in Philadelphia.”
“He wants to absolutely focus the rest of the year on getting his body as ready as he can for the start of (2019),” she added in her statement.
“It’s been a long haul and that’s tough for anybody, but he’s incredibly disciplined, he’s incredibly resilient,” she continued about Andy.
“He loves what he does, so he’s desperate to get back. But… when you’ve been out that long, you don’t want to rush it. I think he’s in a good place at the moment,” Judy concluded.
