Andy Murray struggles with illness on French Open eve: Reports

first_imgWorld number one Andy Murray is battling to recover from illness before the French Open begins on Sunday, according to British media reports.Murray has had numerous setbacks in 2017, with the 30-year-old diagnosed with shingles in February before sustaining an elbow injury in March that ruled him out of the Miami Open and Great Britain’s Davis Cup tie.Top-seeded Murray trained on Thursday, ahead of the main draw for the French Open later on Friday, and is also set to attend a pre-tournament press conference after the draw. While preparing for French Open, Murray had said that health would be the key to prolong his playing career. “When I was starting out on the tour, that (30) is around the time when a lot of (players) would have stopped playing or started to struggle,” Murray was quoted as saying by the Times.”You never know how your body’s going to be and your health. If that’s fine, there is no reason why you can’t compete at the top of the game into your early to mid-thirties.”Not everyone is going to be able to do that, you don’t know how good the generation coming up are going to be, if they’re better than the current generation. If that’s the case then I think it becomes more difficult, but I’m hoping it isn’t.”last_img
