Andy Murray fitness update: Will former world number one make it to Cincinnati?
Fresh question marks over Andy Murray’s long-term future were aired as he pulled out of the quarter-finals of the tournament in Washington earlier this month and then confirmed he would skip this week’s Masters event in Canada.
Murray suggested he would head straight to Cincinnati ahead of the Masters 1000 event next week, yet there were doubts raised over whether the Scot would compete after his emotional outburst that preceded his withdrawal in Washington.
The three-time Grand Slam champion cried on court after his victory against Marius Copil, sparking suggestions that he was struggling physically as he made his latest comeback attempt following hip surgery in January.
Yet an Instagram post from his Davis Cup team-mate Cameron Norrie confirms that Murray is back on court and working towards a potential first round match in Cincinnati next Monday.

Murray has fond memories of Cincinnati as his first ATP Tour Masters title was secured at the tournament back in 2008 and he won the title again in 2011 and he will look to continue his preparations for the US Open with a long run in next week’s event.
Murray moved up 457 places in the world rankings after winning three matches in Washington and any kind of run in Cincinnati would inspire another leap up the ATP list.
