Andy Murray


"unrelated to the hip injury" is the key there, if that's true, then it's really good news indeed.

 and that is the second key, if that is true - lots of speculation it is related, this  saying it isnt. Will only know for sure if Andy speaks, but the  time it is taking to heal must be a cause for concern regardless. Maybe the truth is not DIRECTLY related...ie some knock on effect as the body compensates for the pressures caused by the artificial cap

Something has caused this bone brusing, which is not a regular issue, so would be interesting to hear why they think it has occurred.

From today's Times:

Andy Murray urged to play on clay this year by his former coach Alex Corretja

Stuart Fraser

Andy Murray should consider playing on clay this year to help his preparations for Wimbledon, according to his former coach, lex Corretja.  Murray, 32, has been troubled by a pelvic injury since mid-November. The three-times grand-slam champion postponed his return at the Open Sud de France in Montpellier this week and is yet to announce where and when he will return. Given his latest injury and the operation he had on his right hip last year, it was thought that Murray would avoid the clay this year, having not played a match on the surface since losing to Stan Wawrinka in the 2017 French Open semi-finals.  However, Corretja, the former world No 2 from Spain who worked with Murray between 2008 and 2011, believes that his former charge should not rule out the European clay swing, which starts in April.

"Andy should use clay to get enough matches to be ready for the grass," Corretja, now a pundit for Eurosport, said. "If he skips the clay-court season, there is going to be such a long gap before the grass. I believe he should use clay, not for practice, but to get in shape. He should aim for the grass season and why not the Olympics again? It is very special, he loves the feeling there and it is a competition he knows he can win."

Corretja acknowledges, though, that the French Open, starting on May 18, may be a step too far for Murray, given that matches there are contested over the best of five sets.  "If he feels it can be a little bit risky, maybe he should sacrifice the French Open, because it's very demanding," Corretja said.

Reports since the one above seem to be suggesting we wont see andy until the grass.

I must admit, I worry we will see andy give it one final push at surbiton, queens and Wimbledon and maybe Olympics and then call it a day.

Yes, rather worrying.

I never gave credence to some views that Andy would relatively contentedly give up the tour if he just had quality of life back with his hip. To me, once the op had appeared such a success he was always goung to give it a real go. But yes, even for Andy, a time could yet come later this year if the path forward just looks too much or at least far too uncertain.

But if not ...

Interesting, and good to read a more detailed account of what is actually happening around the hip joint.

 A good start is that they seem to know now what is happening pretty much although they arent clear which way it will go. Andy clearly isnt panicking and it seems a case of what will be , will be. Clearly he would appear to be disappointed to miss the grass and Tokyo, so lets hope it doesnt come to another operation, although the direction of travel to me suggests it will end up that way.

Lots of pictures and video on social media of Andy hitting at the NTC last. With Jay Clarke at least for some of the time. Fingers crossed he makes some further recovery.

I was intrigued to see this article in yesterday's Evening Standard.  I must say, I quite like it.  There something very attractive about the colour combination.  It's also reported in today's Times, but since it will be behind a paywall, there seems little point in my posting a link to that.

Yes intriguing.  Good that Andy has other interests besides tennis and particularly Art.

My friend, Anna, bought a small flat in Battersea, from Maggi Hambling.  She renovated it as it was very basic.  Bathroom was in the lean too. Ground floor of an old two story terrace house. It must have been about 33 years ago.  I still have the photo taken of me there with a baby in my arms.

Was thinking if the enforced tennis break might be to Andys advantage. Assuming he doesnt need a further operation. The extra time allow his body to settle in the hip area might just help him long term. As well if he is in a position to make a comeback once the tour restarts then everyone else not being tour sharp could very well work in his favour.

I think these stats are so instructive of the game of tennis.

www.atptour.com/en/news/djokovic-beyond-the-numbers-march-2020

That the very best players are able to dominate the game and actually only win just over 50% of the points they play, shows how vital it is to be able to win those 1 or 2 critical points.

These stats demonstrate how the Big 3 are really the Big 3 but also how close Andy was to them in the period shown and how Andy was truly the #4 even on this most micro of measures.
