I don't know all the details but I've heard that if he's at 90% then he's still going to play.If you're 90% then you shouldn't play because the difference between being top 10 like Andy is and top 80 or top 100 is maybe 5%.So if you're playing at 90% you won't win very many matches. I know from experience that it's dangerous to play with a small injury.I've done it and know what it's like. You're so competitive and the adrenaline starts so that no matter how careful you want to be, you're not.You're never careful because you want to win so badly. The adrenaline is pumping so much that you don't know when to stop and you can possibly end up making the injury worse.
Andy Murray's rush up the rankings - and this week he rose to a career-high No8, only four places below the peak achieved by both Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski - is no more or less than the 20-year-old Scot ever expected, although many are still out of breath at his rate of achievement since he left the junior ranks two years ago. "Andy doesn't look at it that way," said Brad Gilbert. "He's been a great player since he was a kid. For him he's simply doing what's in his capabilities."These are tough days for player and coach, or so it would appear from the outside with Murray slowly recovering from a right wrist injury that makes him a doubt for Wimbledon. However, Gilbert, the Lawn Tennis Association's performance coach, remains the epitome of calm. "Anytime anybody is injured you always feel for them. But it's part of being an athlete, part of the job. Everybody gets hurt. It's important to stay motivated and keep a positive attitude. The medical advice is more important than anything. You can't be pushing somebody if something is wrong. The experts will say when it's time to do this or that. If not, you can't."
