Andy Murray has assured fans that his latest injury setback is ‘nothing serious,’ although he admits he is feeling frustrated.
Murray spent nearly three years battling his way back from the hip injury that struck him whilst world number one in 2017, and in many ways he still is.
He eventually had to undergo hip-resurfacing surgery, but he looked like he was finally back in a position to reignite his career at the start of this year.
However, he tested positive for Covid-19 before he was due to travel for the Australian Open, and was forced out of Miami with a groin injury too.
“It’s just been another frustrating stop-starty period,” Andy Murray told the Press Association. “The positive thing is it’s nothing very serious.”
“I need to be consistently practising [rather than] having these enforced breaks.
“That was the thing in December, why I think I got into such a good place was because of the two months of practising basically six days a week every week for a couple of months.
“By the end of that my game started to feel really good. That’s the first thing is to be able to be on the practice court consistently and then I obviously need to get the matches.
“How many matches that is, I don’t know.”
