‘I may play the full clay court swing,’ says Andy Murray as he gives scheduling update

Andy Murray gave his clearest indicator yet that he is feeling fit as he confirmed playing a full clay court swing is an option this year.

Murray has been fighting his way back from major hip surgery in 2019, and the comeback has not always gone smoothly.

He finished last year making a fresh vow to crank up his fitness, though, and commit once again to the training regime that saw him climb to world number one in 2016.

Murray certainly looked to be moving better than he has in years during his Rotterdam defeat to world number eight Andrey Rublev on Wednesday, and his latest scheduling update is a clear sign things are looking up on the fitness front.

“I want to play as much as I can but also bearing in mind I have to be smart with the decisions about which tournaments to play,” Murray said.

“I’ll have next week off and then hopefully be able to play in Dubai and Miami and then see from there.

“There’s the option to play the full clay court swing or drop down and play Challengers to get more matches. I feel I want to be playing at this level.”
