Andy Murray Says He’s Finally Able To Train Like He Used To

Andy Murray revealed yesterday that he has finally returned to full training after being slowed by the recovery from back surgery the first half of the season.

Murray, who hasn’t reached a tournament final since his 2013 Wimbledon win, did make the semifinals in Paris before getting bounced in the Wimbledon quarters. But going forward he could be a different player.

“I started to feel good, actually, like just before the French Open,” Murray said after a 62, 62 win over Nick Kyrgios Wednesday in Toronto. “My back started to feel good. Back felt fine throughout the French Open and through the grass court season. The only problem was that kind of before that I was able to practice but not sort of train off the court, do the stuff in the gym that, you know, makes you physically strong. That’s something that, you know, these days you need.

“So when I was coming up against the better players, I was just lacking a little bit. But after Wimbledon, I went over to Miami and I really trained like I used to for the first time since the surgery and I felt much better.”

The 9th-ranked Murray added that it was different having Amelie Mauresmo training with him last month in Miami.

“The training block I did in Miami is different to what it was under Ivan, you know, but I’m happy with the way it’s been working so far,” Murray said. “Both of us I think have enjoyed it. I certainly have from my side. Yeah, it’s now up to me to try and produce the results.”

The 2-time Canadian Open winner faces 2-time finalist Richard Gasquet later this afternoon in the third round.

Humble Rafa Says:

Madame Chokess and Lady Forehand can discuss how to improve choking.


Hippy Chic Says:

I hope it pays off Andy,im pulling for you this week,hope it all works out for you….


calmdownplease Says:

Someone needs to tell Humble Rafa` that when his `humour` misses the mark, he comes across as not being very bright.
And it misses often.


Margot Says:

Stuck needle time.
*Yawn*


Giles Says:

Cdp. HR tries his best, no?


calmdownplease Says:

Margot, I want to be much more rude about Nadal but I remember that some of his fans are very nice so its stopping me, and lets face it, who really gives a f*** what Humble Rafa thinks?


calmdownplease Says:

Oh and Rafa is very nice chap too :)


Michael Says:

Andy is a bit lucky in his career because he gets a lot of walk overs. But that might act as a double edged sword. Still, Andy rides his luck. Now his task his cut out against Tsonga. Nevertheless, he can take inspiration from the fact that his H2H against Tsonga is in his favour and that should really offer some encouragement going into this match.


Margot Says:

@CDP
Never feel like doing that. Players can’t help the fans they get. I mean look at what poor Andy has to contend with….;)
Hmmm…Thought so… elementary my dear Watson.

Margot Says:

Apologies for double post!
Strange.


Hippy Chic Says:

Michael i dont think W/O necassarily work in a players favour,as this could although i hope it doesnt effect Andys rythum?just wondering though did you mean as a generalisation as all players get their share of luck,and surely you make your own luck?


calmdownplease Says:

`Andy is a bit lucky in his career because he gets a lot of walk overs…`

Really?
This is absolute rubbish, one of the lamest attempts yet at denigrating Andy.
So when, pray tell, has he had a `lot of walkovers?
He has had a few like the rest of them.


Margot Says:

“I’m a great believer in luck and I find the harder I work, the luckier I get.”
“You know Hobbes, sometimes I find even my lucky rocket launcher underpants don’t help.”


calmdownplease Says:

`Never feel like doing that. Players can’t help the fans they get…`

True indeed.
Of course said players aren’t going to be reading this site and you just know it is one of the most effective ways to deal with their awful fans.
But in principle, you are surely correct ;)


calmdownplease Says:

Margot, you do know Andy only wins due to his incredible luck.
Whether it be rain, W/O the exhaustion of opponents and so on.
The providential dude is always striking it.
So thank goodness for luck I say!
This Gasquet withdrawal is good however (as long as he gets through Tsonga) as it is a pretty packed schedule before the US, and he needs to go deep in both tourneys to stand a chance at the US.
Unless of course he gets lucky…..


Hippy Chic Says:

If Andy is considered lucky then IMO he deserves a share of luck?however i believe otherwise he won his GS the hard way both of the GS he won were done the hard way,he did that by beating a multiple GS champion,if you look at Roger,Rafa,Nole they all had it much easier as they beat players that had never won GS before,Roger beat Phylipousis to win his first GS at Wimbledon,Rafa i cannot remember the guys name at the FO,Nole beat Tsonga to win the AO(although he did beat Roger in the semis,but still not the same as a final),he Stan and Delpos root to winning their first GS was much tougher than the others,Stan and Delpo won their first GS by beating two multiple GS champions back to back too….


calmdownplease Says:

Preach it HC!
