Andy Murray: I’m getting stronger every day and will be ready for 2019
Former world number one Andy Murray has given an update on his fitness, insisting he is feeling better every day and will be ready for his 2019 season opener in Brisbane.
He cut that comeback short though, vowing to spend the time readying himself for 2019 instead, and he has issued an update on those plans from his base in Philadelphia.
“I’m feeling physically a little bit better every day,” he told the Brisbane International. “It’s obviously been a tough year with the hip injury but I’m getting closer.
“I’ve still got a couple of months to get myself in the best shape for the start of the tournament.”
“I’m planning on getting to Brisbane early this year.
“Before then, I’m going to do my off-season training in Miami, three or four weeks working in the hot conditions there and spending time on court to get ready.
“I’m looking forward to playing in Brisbane again and hopefully I can perform well.”
