It seems Andy is remaining in Miami to train for the clay-court season rather than returning to London. That does make sense, and no doubt Kim and the doggies will still be there too to keep him company.Murray eyes French Open title
[Pakistan Today, 2 April]
LONDON - The clay-court season begins for the Brit in Monte Carlo in two weeks and there is much work to be done, culminating in the French Open, which begins on Sunday, May 26.
Andy Murray rightly afforded himself some time for a swim by the beach in Miami after coming through a gruelling test of body and mind against David Ferrer to win the Sony Open on Sunday.
But the newly crowned world No 2 will not be resting on his laurels now that he has cemented his position as one of the game’s leading players.
The clay-court season begins for the Brit in Monte Carlo in two weeks and there is much work to be done, culminating in the French Open, which begins on Sunday, May 26.
Coming through such a physical slog against the tenacious Spanish No 4 was testament to the work and the hard yards that Murray puts in on and off the court for extended periods of the year on the Florida coast.
And now, opting to miss Great Britain’s Davis Cup Euro/Africa Zone Group One tie against Russia in Coventry this weekend, Murray will remain in America as he hits the clay courts with coach Ivan Lendl to begin his preparations for an assault on the French Open title.
Murray acknowledges that it is his worst surface, but previous semi-final appearances in Paris, Rome and Monte Carlo show that he is indeed not quite as bad on clay as some may suggest.
Murray said: ‘I will focus on Monte Carlo now. I’ll take a few days off and then start my training on the clay courts around here. I’ll try to keep improving my clay-court game. I just need to serve better - it’s much easier to return on clay so I need to make sure that I serve well.’Full article
