Andy Murray is facing quite a bit of uncertainty with his abdominal injury progressing but it's going far from perfect.
Andy Murray has struggled with injuries for the past few years, and his latest came in Germany in the Stuttgart Open final against Matteo Berrettini. His preparations have been strong, with the Scot reaching the last four in Surbiton before reaching the final in Stuttgart last week. Ideally, Murray planned to head to Queen's as a final warm-up for Wimbledon, which starts on June 27.
But with the 35-year-old still recovering from his abdominal injury, he was forced to withdraw from the event and now hopes to be fit in time for his return to SW19. He shared a brief update on how things are going:
"The positives are I've been able to practise but there are certain shots I've not been able to practise, so that has obviously disrupted my preparations. The injury is healing but still not perfect. I've been practising for the past three or four days and have been practising well. But unfortunately in matches you can't just not hit certain shots. In the next couple of days hopefully I'll get the chance to test that and hopefully it will be fine."
Murray has also reunited with Ivan Lendl as his coach, with the pair having experienced Wimbledon glory in their first stint together.
