I see the article on the BBC site. Glad to see him express the idea of a challenger event next week in Mallorca where he talks about it being easier to win matches. It is what he needs now.
Nearly but not quite prepared enough again last night.
He will fly home from Winston-Salem on Tuesday but is actively considering whether to compete in next week's Challenger event in Mallorca.
"I think for my body it would be a good thing because I do feel at that level I will be winning matches each week," Murray added.
"And I think it would be good for my game as well because I'm not quite seeing the points as I used to. And if I can get more matches, I'll start to work that out a little bit quicker, and see it faster.
"I would probably rather stay playing outdoors because the next couple of tour events I'm playing are outdoors in Asia, but I haven't given it tonnes of thought."
Let us hope he follows up on that. Take the family for a holiday too?
i hope he does as well. Not sure about the holiday though because he needs to focus on his tennis.
I didn’t see the Tennys the menace match. I suppose this is what dipping his toe in the water is all about. Seeing where the rust is. Didn’t Wawrinka and Del Potro go to Challenger events after their injuries?
I don't know about Del Potro, but both Wawrinka and Nishikori did.
I have to agree with Tamaragl. It was a hard fought match with some amazing points by Andy. He had 6 aces, only one double fault. We just need to remember that this is a new Andy working his way back. We can’t compare his play now to what it used to be. And we just need to enjoy the fact that he is back playing tennis.
I agree with everything Tamara says as well, and you too. Also Sandgren played some pretty good tennis himself - better than I had expected really, so I suppose you could say that it's a good sign that he had to up his own level against Andy and keep it up. That first game of the match was unbelievable though because neither player seemed to be able to get out of it until Sandgren finally held.
The one thing that really gladdened my heart though was to see Andy scampering from side to side along the baseline chasing down balls. He says he needs to work on his lateral movement, particularly suddenly changing direction from left to right, but if this match is anything to go by he's done a pretty good job so far, particularly as it shows too that he's coming to trust his new hip more and more.
