Andy Murray plans to fix his 'frustrating' cramping issues

The former world No.1 Andy Murray has had cramping issues as of late and the Scotsman undergoing sweat testing to try and get to the bottom of it.

Murray's 'big concern' had affected him by getting knocked out in the first round of the Canadian and Cincinnati Open and yet again in the second round of the Western and Southern Open against Cameron Norrie.

After an attempt at changing his training schedule to help and it not working, Murray has decided to look further into it with getting tests done.

“I’m doing sweat testing in these conditions to see if anything has changed in that respect because the sports drinks and the electrolytes is made specifically on my sweat tests, but I haven’t done sweat testing for quite a number of years."

“It’s not just been as simple as changing how much I’ve been drinking or what I’m drinking so I need to get some answers.”

Other than an abdominal injury in June Andy Murray hasn't had many issues other than the cramping which would be frustrating for the 3 time Grand Slam winner.

“From the physical side it’s been a bit frustrating right now because I’ve been pulling up from the matches really well in terms of where my body is today in comparison to last year, for example. I’m in a much better place in terms of how my left groin has been and my lower back – it’s been really good,”

"Physically I feel pretty good in terms of discomfort and pain and everything but then I’ve been having the cramping the last few weeks so that’s been frustrating.

“I’ve had cramp before but not consistently so I’m just trying to understand and get to the bottom of that.”
