Andy Murray ‘in a good place’ as he prepares for 2019, says his mother
Andy Murray is”in a good place at the moment” despite his decision to skip most of the rest of the season, says his mother.
The former British and world number one has successfully rejoined the ATP Tour after a wretched time with injury, and fresh fears were raised over his condition after he announced he’d withdraw from tournaments to focus on being ready for 2019.
However, his mother has given an update on his fitness.

“He’s doing well. He’s working with a rehab specialist in Philadelphia,” said Judy Murray.
“He wants to absolutely focus the rest of the year on getting his body as ready as he can for the start of (2019),” she said.
“It’s been a long haul and that’s tough for anybody, but he’s incredibly disciplined, he’s incredibly resilient.”
In 2013, a year after his first Grand Slam win at the US Open, Murray became the first British player to win the men’s singles title at Wimbledon in more than 75 years, and won the trophy again three years later.
“He loves what he does, so he’s desperate to get back. But… when you’ve been out that long, you don’t want to rush it,” said Murray’s mother, who coached him during his early years.
“I think he’s in a good place at the moment.”
