After a random “niggle” last week, Andy Murray says he feels fine and ready for a strong end of the season.
“I feel good,” Murray said. “I had a little niggle in Basel so I wasn’t able to play there. But I fine this week. Physically I am much better than I have been coming into Paris in the past which is a good sign.”
Murray had to withdraw from the Basel Swiss Indoors due to a gluteal injury, but he’s fully recovered for the Paris Indoors.
Seeded second, Murray will play the Granollers-Chardy winner in his opening second round match tomorrow. The Andy Roddick-Benneteau winner will be next in the third round.
With Nadal absent, if Murray can win Paris his can put himself in position to pass Rafa for the No. 2 ranking at the London World Tour Finals.
Murray has won 25 of his last 26 matches with 13 straight including titles at Bangkok, Tokyo and Shanghai.
“I feel confident, but also I need to build my way into the tournament and back into form,” he cautioned. “I had a few weeks off and that stops the momentum a little bit but if I can get through a match or two I am sure I will start to play better.
“I am looking forward to the end of the season two big tournaments and try and finish well.
