Murray 'doing everything' to regain fitness

Judy Murray says her son Andy Murray is "doing everything he can" to return to full fitness as soon as possible.

The former world number one was forced to pull out of the US Open recently due to his troublesome hip injury and is expected to sit out the rest of 2017 in order to be refreshed and ready for the first Grand Slam of next year, the Australian Open, in January.

Murray still intends to take on Roger Federer in an exhibition match in Glasgow in November but his mother says it is vital he rests and recovers in time for next year after a busy schedule.

She said on STV: "He's doing everything he can to recover from the injury and is very much looking forward to playing in November.

"It's frustrating for any athlete but there have been so many advances in recent years in sports science and sports medicine that you really can get the best advice and can find exactly what it is you are dealing with.

"A lot of it is about rest as well, the last two years have been incredibly tough for him. Firstly, in 2015 trying to win the Davis Cup on top of staying in the top two or three, and then in 2016 that huge run he went on to try and get to world number one."

She added: "It took a lot out of his body and probably took a lot out of him mentally as well, so I don't think it will do him any harm to have an extended break."
