After undergoing back surgery last fall, Andy Murray says he’s now close to being match fit ahead of the Masters 1000 Indian Wells.

“Acapulco helped me a lot, I played a lot of long, tough matches, late finishes,” Murray said of his semifinal last week. “Then had to get up and do the same thing the next day. My body was recovering well from those matches which it hadn’t been at the beginning of the year.

“So I think I’m close to being completely match fit. My body feels good, back’s been very good especially the last couple of weeks so hopefully that will reflect on my performances on the court.”

Murray’s had his struggles at Indian Wells reaching the semifinals only twice highlighted by the finals in 2009, a match, he said, was played in a sandstorm and on the same day as England’s soccer match.

Last year Murray ended a 3-match losing streak at the event by reaching the quarterfinals where he lost to Juan Martin del Potro.

Murray, who could meet top seed Rafael Nadal in his quarter, will Lukas Rosol in the first round on Saturday.
