Withdrawn from Miami, Andy Murray hoped for consistency to elevate comeback
The 33-year-old Andy Murray, who has won three Grand Slams, has just one win in two ATP so far this season.
After being withdrawn from Miami Open after suffering a groin injury in practice, Andy Murray is looking forward to aim for consistency as the first step in returning to the top level of the game.
Murray, ranked as number 119 and awarded as a main draw wild card into the Miami Open, announced his withdrawal from the Master’s event he has won twice before.
“I had no issue while training, I felt fine, did some gym work Friday, no problem. Then I woke up about three in the morning, felt pain in the groin, not on the side I had my surgery,” Murray said in an interview in Miami.
“When I got out of bed I struggled quite a bit to walk. I have no idea what I did, it’s one of those freak things. Each day it has gotten progressively better, but it’s not enough.”
Talking about the improvements, he further added, “I expect a lot better than what I produced in the three tournaments that I played so far. Certainly more consistency.”
“I know I’m still capable of playing at the highest level,” he said. “I need weeks and months of training and practicing and matches and good health, but I do feel like it’ possible.”
Murray has experienced a pelvic injury and had to withdraw from the Australian Open when he tested for corona positive. He also withdrew from the ATP event in Dubai when his wife, Kim, gave birth to their fourth child.
