Judy Murray: Andy's Goal is to Be Ready for 2020


Former world no. 1 and three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray was almost done and dusted in January after that thrilling clash with Roberto Bautista Agut in Melbourne, struggling with hip pain that couldn't go away despite all of his efforts.

Eager to extend his career for a couple of more years, Andy underwent another surgery that fixed the problems and allowed him to start training again, making a return in June with the doubles crown at Queen's.

Not rushing anything, the Briton stayed on the doubles court for a couple of tournaments, making slow singles return in Cincinnati, Winston-Salem and Rafa Nadal Open Challenger to shape up his game and embrace full Asian swing that put him in the spotlight again.

Happy with his progress and the current level, Andy will now travel back to Europe and compete in Antwerp, seeking more good wins and better ranking positions ahead of 2020 when he should fight for the ATP titles again.

Judy Murray is happy with Andy's progress in recent months, expecting more from him in the season ahead of us when he should fight for the ATP titles again.

"It seems good, but it's still early days," Judy Murray said. "Remember, he only started playing singles again in August in Cincinnati and Winston-Salem.

A lot of this is about starting to build up match fitness and to be able to recover if you want to play the next encounter.

The only way to test that is to put yourself on the match court. Andy's been surviving a lot of long clashes over the past few weeks.

His goal is to be ready for the start of 2020. He's in a pretty good place, seems to be moving well and getting faster over the weeks."
