Andy Murray


Fingers crossed he recovers for Australia as I'm heading to the Open for a couple of days. Would be so disappointing if he's not there for my special trip.

Seems very sensible from Andy. I trust that he was genuinely very close to competing at the US Open, but partly that clear huge frustration that he didn't make it has made up his mind for him, to take that extended time off to get fixed rather than say face the same agonies come the Australian Open.

If he will be out for a little while he might as well abandon the whole of the rest of the season, I rather hope he does. With his points to defend he will soon be falling down the rankings anyway and he is now down to #11 in the live race, behind Carreno Busta and Querrey, so even now out of the top 8 even if you take out Djokovic and Wawrinka. I see little to be gained and maybe much to lose by trying to get back into O2 contention.

Fit and well opportunity beckons for a great year in 2018, though he may have some err rather interesting draws for a while.

The Australian Open seedings should be fun, kinda ( OK maybe not very ) like some leading F1 drivers being given new engine grid penalties so having to work a tricky path through the field. I hope that Andy is well renewed so ready to surge through !

Andy needs the rest. The right think to do if he wants to extend his career. Rodge managed 2017 beautifully

Probably looking at another 2014 year next season then. It's the right decision, but such a shame how injury-hit he's been this year. Been a complete write-off, really.

I really hope he can get himself back to full fitness next season and we see him back in the upper echelons of the game again in 2018/19.

If Andy can mend quickly enough to have a normal fully intense off season prep, maybe even longer than usual, he could hit the ground running. I don't believe he had such prep prior to the 2014 season and indeed didn't have full confidence in his back until well into it.

The women in the quarter finals and beyond at the US Open have shown what can be achieved there and before since some comebacks. The saying "you take as long to get back as you are out" may just possibly equate near some average but it is bull as an individual predictor. That really comes down to the individual and their particular circumstances.

Yes and draws/seedings wise Andy might be fortunate in that Stan, Novak, Milos, Kei etc will all be ranked in the 10-20 zone as well so ironically he may encounter draws not any more different than to what he now faces if he manages to avoid Roger and Rafa.
