After an off-season that was blighted by injury and sickness, Andy admits that 2024 could be his last season -

Not an article, just a bit of info.  It seems Andy has been training in Dubai, and on 12th December was spotted practising with Dominic Thiem.  Don't know if he planned to return home before Christmas or stay there and bring the family over, then on to Brisbane which starts on the 31st.
I note that Andy played and won an exhibition match against Dominic yesterday. I have no clue if that is any sort of indicator of his tennis likely performance at AO.

I watched the match as it happened to fit into my morning routine. Domi was rather erratic, which facilitated things for Andy. But to me he looked very determined, solid and strong on return and serve.

Apollo in the US watched it too - "Andy played a great match!  He hit some amazing shots at the net, his serve was on.  It was windy and I think that helped him or maybe hurt Thiem."

Andy's been working on the mental side of the sport and his serve during the off season,  and feels he's enjoying tennis better -

Very saddened to hear of the collapse and death of Mike Dickson in Melbourne where he was covering the AO.  Dickson, who was 59, was the Tennis Correspondent for the Daily Mail and his articles were always interesting and very fair.  The last article he ever wrote was about Andy's match against Etcheverry, and the last interview he conducted was with Emma Raducanu.

That is sad news.  Like you I thought his articles were very fair.

Andreeva's really funny the way she goes on about Andy, and has done ever since they came across each other in Madrid last year.  In fact I think she's one of his biggest fans, so it's great to see him still giving her so much support while putting Liam Broady  firmly in his place at the same time.

I saw this quote on Tennis 365.

1. Novak Djokovic hasn’t won a set on grass against Andy Murray

It is hard to believe, but Andy Murray is 5-0 in terms of sets against Novak Djokovic on grass and that is mostly down to the fact that they have played only two matches against each other on the surface.

That is a bizarre stat in itself when you consider they have faced each other 36 times in top-level tennis.

Murray won their first-ever match on grass at the 2012 London Olympics as he beat Djokovic 7-5, 7-5 and the following year he stunned the Serbian 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 in the Wimbledon final.

And that was the last time they met on the surface.

That is very interesting wb.  I also discovered recently that in 2006 the Djokovic family considered moving to London, possibly even acquiring British nationality, because training facilities were so much better here, and even had talks with the LTA about it, but in the end Djokovic decided to remain loyal to Serbia.

“I am looking forward to the end now,” stated Andy Murray after he played his last singles match at the Miami Open with the former world No 1 admitting the final few months of his career will be about “giving my best” before he can finally spend time with his family.

The LTA have confirmed that Andy has signed up for Queens, which starts on 15th June, but I won't be taking this for granted until we hear something from Andy himself.  That update though would suggest Andy has been given encouragement by medical staff that he might have a chance to get back on court without the need for surgery to repair the damage to his ankle.

The fact that Andy doesn't need surgery is good news because he now has a fair chance of making at least part of the grass court season,
