Andy Murray says he may look to step down to Challenger events as he looks to continue to rebuild his singles career.

The former world number one has lost his two singles matches since hip surgery, against Richard Gasquet in Washington and then Tennys Sandgren in Cincinnati.

However, Murray is far from discouraged, and believes that playing more matches, and getting more wins, is the key to reconstructing his game – whatever level they may come at.

“I think for my body it would be a good thing because I do feel at that level I will be winning matches each week,” Murray, who may play the upcoming Challenger event in Mallorca, said.

“And I think it would be good for my game as well because I’m not quite seeing the points as I used to.

“And if I can get more matches, I’ll start to work that out a little bit quicker, and see it faster.

“I would probably rather stay playing outdoors because the next couple of tour events I’m playing are outdoors in Asia, but I haven’t given it tonnes of thought.”
