Andy Murray to practice with Novak Djokovic, although Roland Garros plans remain unclear

Andy Murray has revealed he will practice with world number one Novak Djokovic ahead of his latest comeback bid.

Murray suffered what he described as a freak groin injury during the night ahead of the Miami Masters in March, and he has not yet been able to return to the ATP Tour.

However, he is close, and although Murray is not playing Rome next week he will travel to the tournament to step up his practice.

“On Sunday I’ve got a court booked with [Diego] Schwartzman and then Novak in the afternoon,” Murray said.

“I want to play against the highest level players possible because I think that will help me improve my game quicker.”

If all goes to plan, Murray will return to competitive action at either Geneva or Lyon, both of which start on May 17th.

It is all geared up to him playing the French Open at the start of June, although he does not yet know whether or not he will get a wild card or if he will have to qualify.

“I don’t mind if they don’t want to give me a wild card, that’s fine, they can give them to whoever they want to,” said Murray.

“It just makes it a bit tricky with planning, but we should find out in the next week or so.”

It has also been reported that Mark Petchy is to re-join Murray’s coaching team after previously working with him earlier in his career.
