Andy Murray looks set to come back from a slight elbow injury to compete in the Madrid Open this week.
Murray sustained the injury in Monte Carlo last month that forced him to withdraw from the Barcelona Open. However, the British number one has revealed that he has been back practicing for the last week and is ready to take on the world’s best again in Madrid.
Murray also revealed that he has been working closely with Darren Cahill this week following his decision to part company with Alex Corteja. The Australian is a former coach of multiple grand slam winners Lleyton Hewitt and Andre Agassi.
As fourth seed in the tournament he will receive the usual first round bye. He is set to meet Frenchman Gilles Simon or former world top 5 Ivan Ljubicic in the second round. If he repeats his feats of Monaco, Novak Djokovic is seeded to meet him in the semi finals.
R2 : Simon/Ljubicic
R3 : Troicki
QF : Berdych
SF : Djokovic
Murray appears in good spirits, saying, "I feel great. I've been practising really well. I feel good again. I've got the right mentality just now. I've been playing very well, so hopefully I can keep that up here. I've got a tough first match, but definitely one I can win if I play well."
