‘I want to play in the Slams again,’ says Andy Murray after his latest setback
He is not exactly sure when he will return to action, but Andy Murray insists he wants to compete at the Grand Slams again as it is something he has “missed over these last few years”.
Murray issued a worrying fitness update on Wednesday as he revealed that his current injury is “unbelievably complex” and he might be forced to have more surgery.
But for now he has adopted a wait and see policy and he has not completely ruled himself out of the Miami Open, which takes place from 23-30 March.
However, his big dream remains the Grand Slams and he says missing this year’s Australian Open was “rough”.
The former world No 1 last competed in the singles of a major at the start of the 2019 after he was forced to pull out of this year’s season-opening Slam at Melbourne Park due to his latest setback while there are now question marks over Wimbledon.
“I want to play in the Slams again. That is the thing that I have missed over these last few years,” he said.
“Missing the Australian Open for me this year was rough. At the end of last season I was actually starting to play pretty well, I was feeling good and then this happened.
“I don’t want to say I will definitely be in Miami playing – there is also the possibility I might have to have something done.”
He added: I would hope I should know by the end of next month whether I’m good to play or not with it.
“That’s what I have to wait for. And then the issue around that is, if they can’t get to it with an arthroscope, which is obviously the hope, that I would then have to be opened up again. That obviously takes longer to recover.”
