Andy Murray: ‘If I was getting smoked in practice I wouldn’t keep going through it’

Andy Murray says he is playing well in practice against good players, so he knows he can still produce quality tennis.

The former world number one will return to ATP action this week in Montpellier after being forced to skip the Australian Open due to a positive coronavirus test.

It is the latest chapter in Murray’s on-going fight to conquer the hip injury that has essentially robbed him of the last three years of his career, and he remains bullish about what he can achieve.

“Physically in terms of pain I felt good,” Andy Murray said after he reached the final of a challenger event two weeks ago.

“My hips and stuff were good. I just felt heavy-legged at times during the week but that’s understandable.

“I play in practice with lots of top players and I know how I get on against them. If I was getting smoked when I was practising I wouldn’t keep going through it.

“But I know the level I am playing at. I have been practising with players between 20 and 60 in the world and doing absolutely fine.

“That is off the back of playing hardly any matches over the last couple of years.”
