Andy Murray: ‘I’m the fittest I’ve felt for a very long time – I’m feeling good’

Andy Murray has delivered his most positive injury update yet, saying he has no pain at all and he’s ‘feeling fitter than he has in a long time.’

Murray was not able to play in the Australian Open due to a badly-timed positive coronavirus test, so he went to Biella to play a Challenger event instead.

He stepped up his comeback again last week, playing two matches in Rotterdam, and he looked like he was moving better than he had in years at times in his defeat to Andrey Rublev.

And, sure enough, the former world number one says he is finally feeling well-positioned to make a serious run at the world rankings this year.

“Physically, I’m feeling good,” Andy Murray said. “My hip isn’t giving me any pain anymore and I’m happy with how I’m moving on court.

“I trained really hard in the run up to Biella so I’m the fittest I’ve felt for a long time.

“I’m keen to play as many matches as possible at the moment, as match practice is what I’m lacking most right now.

“Most athletes have niggles and aches and pains all the time, but compared to what I went through in 2018 I’m doing pretty well.

“I’m also much better at recognizing when I need to rest and recuperate these days, so building that into my routine has helped.”
