Andy Murray must make sure he is “in his best shape” for Wimbledon or the Olympics instead of rushing his latest comeback, says his former coach Alex Corretja.
After undergoing hip resurfacing surgery at the start of 2019, former world No 1 Murray made a successful return to tennis during the second half of the year.
The three-time Grand Slam winner is yet to confirm when he will return to action, but Spaniard Corretja advised him to rather ease back into things.
“Andy Murray needs to prepare his season focusing on a goal, a big goal,” he told Reuters.
“That might be Wimbledon or it could be the Olympics. But you can’t just go through the season thinking you are going to win a few matches here and there, he needs to be ready.
“I think in five or six months time he will have had enough time to be ready and that’s when Wimbledon comes.
“That will be the period I believe he will need to be in his best shape.
“He will need more matches. He will need to do well in Indian Wells and Miami, play a good clay-court season, then maybe by Wimbledon he might have his top form again.”
