Andy Murray Was Practicing At Wimbledon On Sunday, But Still Not Sure About Queen’s [Video]

On the day the French Open began, injured Andy Murray was already back on the court semi-practicing on the grass at Wimbledon, he told ESPN. But he admitted he wasn’t fully right.

Murray withdrew last week from the French Open for a back injury that he made worse

“That’s the one positive I have to take out of missing the French,” Murray said. “I have to take the positives and try and say ‘Ok, This gives me a bit more time to get my back right’. I have been doing three hours of rehab and treatment to make sure it’s as good as possible for the grass court stretch.”

“I’ve hit some balls the last couple of days but I’m not doing any movements on court,” he said. “Hopefully by the grass court season I’ll be feeling better.”

Murray said his back got progressively worse at Madrid, and his back flares up the most on the clay.

“That’s the plan,” Murray said of playing Wimbledon. “Grass is a bit easier on my back than clay. I’m hoping that Wimbledon will be fine.

“I’ll try and get myself fit and ready to play at Queen’s, I’ll just have to see what happens.”

Murray had made the finals of the last three Grand Slams, winning of course at the US Open.

Good to hear he is slowly on the mend and looking forward.

Tennis x hippy chic Says:

So looking forward to seeing Andy at Wimbledon this year,hope hes ready for Queens as i dont think it would be such a good idea to go to Wimbledon cold turkey with no GC practice,even if he plays just a couple of matches and then looses,just to see where hes at game wise.

thebigfour Says:

He will be fit in time to play at Wimbledon, but I don’t think he will win it. Federer, Djokovic, or Nadal will probably take the tile in London.

singularity87 Says:

It’s a pity. With his final run last year and his Olympic performance this ought to be his best chance.

But if he’s struggling with injury, not so much. :(

Okiegal Says:

Hope Andy gets his health issues straightened out before Wimby. I really like this guy. After Rafa, he is high on my list of players I enjoy watching. Get well, Andy and good luck at Wimby!!!
