Andy Murray


It does very much sound from my general reading that Andy really wants to avoid any chance of coming back too soon. The words are right anyway.

"I want to come back when I'm fit and ready to play, not to get into a situation like Brisbane or New York, where I'm unsure when I turn up at a tournament how fit I am. I want to know when I come back that I'm ready."

He's bitten the bullet, had surgery and now I am sure doesn't want to undermine any of the surgeon's apparent good work but now to think long term.

The grass season does though seem to be a very reasonable provisional target.

"My plan is to be back playing around the grasscourt season - potentially before then. I'm going to take my time to make sure that the rehab is done properly, and make sure that the surgery is as successful as it can be".

So yes giving it whatever time it needs. Prefer no "potentially before then". For what? Clay - please no. The French Open can wait until 2019.

Let's before the grass season watch the progress of the next generation and see who will be the post Roland Garros GB #1.

Current points since Roland Garros last year including Cam's Aus Open QR1 win.

1. Kyle 695
2. Cam 494
3. Andy 360

Andy quotes are from one of Kevin Mitchell's 09/01 Guardian articles.

Strange though it sounds I dont think he has ever done a days work in his life, ie he actually likes Tennis.

Indeed, been wonderful to read how he has been opening up a lot recently, and a particular theme has been how much he has missed simply playing tennis.

 Yes, if you read the instagram post or the articles that quoted it about wanting to be back out on the court you can see that.

 

Today he has posted about the court speed and how it looks at the AO in between ribbing his mum!

By the time Andy comes back its looking like its going to be almost a year since his last tournament. Will be interesting to see if he goes for the world tour straight away or drops onto the Challenger circuit like Nishikori is doing. Imagine him turning up at Surbiton or similar, would actually maybe open the eyes of the British public that there is more than just Wimbledon and Queens in this currently!

Also I assume being a commitment player he will be included in the main draw of all the masters tournaments later in the year irrespective of using a PR.

 It's a shame there's not a home ATP 250 in w/c 11 June - like the Nottingham International for the ladies.  That would have been an ideal warm up for Andy before Queens.

One would hope that this would give Andy some additional confidence that it is possible to return after hip surgery and compete at the top, albeit a different but equally (more?) gruelling sport

Was unaware of Ali's injury.  Top bloke.  Great to see him back in the saddle, as it were.  smile  Andy should be really able to take some inspiration from a story like that.

Indeed. I see he really felt good for the last little bit of the run in : "...and I actually really enjoyed the last 10-18km"

Reports today seem to suggest Andy us doing OK and in the gym with target of coming back for grass. Most papers speculate on Queens though the guardian suggests that Surbiton might prove an interesting option. I'm sure if things go well, Andy would prefer something less high profile than Queens. It's also, Surbiton, Queens and Wimbledon going to give him 6 weeks elapsed time back to back of playing events whilst living at home, which must be attractive. Hope it works out.

yep and there's going to be a new exhibition based out of Roehampton this year sponsored by Gant, the week prior to Wimbledon where he could pick up another couple of match practices. Similar to the Boodles event.

Seems to have abandoned the "or earlier" than the grass court season which he mentioned after surgery, which did seem probably a bit far fetched and why push to come back for clay anyway. Steady as you go, mate.

I've been missing Andy so happy to hear his recovery is going well. Fingers crossed it continues to go well and he comes back for the grass season - and skips clay, at least for this year. It will still be there next year after all.
