Andy Murray is trying to find his way in the single competitions after his successful hip surgery.
The Brit seemed to be close to retirement earlier in January when he stated that he couldn’t find the solution to his hip injury. Eventually, as a last resort, the former world no.1 tried to have a hip resurfacing operation. That went pretty well as Andy Murray is now completely pain-free and back on court.
After a stint playing in doubles, the Brit decided to give it a go in the single competitions even if he is fully aware that he needs to regain his legendary movements. Andy was back in singles in Cincinnati where he lost 6-4 6-4 to an inspired Richard Gasquet. Later, he decided to skip the US Open (too tough for his body) to play instead in Winston-Salem where he lost to Tennys Sandgreen 7-6(8) 7-5.
Will Murray play the Rafa Nadal Open?
Andy stated that he had the idea to play a Challenger. According to reports, the rumor is that he will compete in the Rafa Nadal Open that will be hosted at the Rafa Nadal Academy during the 2nd week of the US Open.
That would not be a surprise since Murray has a very good relationship with the King of Clay and he used to fly to his Academy every now and then to train with Rafa.
Andy’s participation would be an evident boost for the event.
