Murray ready to step up fitness levels
Andy Murray has vowed to work on his fitness levels before Wimbledon after crashing out of the French Open against David Ferrer.
The 25-year-old British number one had struggled with a back complaint in the early rounds of the clay-court Grand Slam at Roland Garros. However, Murray overcame the injury to reach the quarter-finals, where he was found wanting by Spaniard and world number six, Ferrer, as he went out 6-4 6-7 (3-7) 6-3 6-2.
And, as the world number four now switches his attentions to the grass court action on home soil at Queen's and Wimbledon, he confirmed the need to build up his fitness.
"I need to get some good physical work in between now and Wimbledon. I need to make sure I am in slightly better shape," said Murray.
"I think that is going to be important for me. I was a little bit out of breath after some of the longer rallies today."
Meanwhile, the Scot also dismissed the possibility of him not play at Queen's in order to rest his back ahead of Wimbledon.
Murray added: "I haven't even discussed the possibilities [of not playing] with any of the guys who I work with so the plan is to play Queens as it always has been.
"It's my preparation for Wimbledon and it's worked well for me but I will sit down with the guys and discuss what I am going to do over the next two weeks before the tournament starts."
