Andy Murray admits he will NOT be making any long-term goals until after the US Open as two-time Wimbledon champion prepares for return to action at Cincinnati Masters, but is unseeded for the ATP 1000 event and has been given a wildcard for the tournament. The event comes after Murray withdrew from the men’s singles at the Tokyo Olympics with a thigh strain,

 

 

but played in the doubles alongside Joe Salisbury. ‘I think I need to set short-term goals, it is what’s really important just now because it’s been very difficult to plan medium and longer-term targets because of various different issues that I’ve had this year,’ Murray said in his first press conference since the Olympics.

 

 

 

 

 

‘I just try to focus on the short term. Look at this week as a great opportunity for me to play on hard courts in conditions that I like against top players again. ‘So short-term goals is to be on the practice court with these guys as much as I can, hopefully get the chance to play matches, like I said in these conditions and give all my energy and efforts to the US Open and assess where my game and my body is at the end of that.

‘But I can’t really look too far ahead right now, I think my team planning my physical conditioning and my scheduling and everything – that could be their job to plan those things out but for me I just need to take things each week at a time just now and give all my energy to each match and each event that I play and see where I’m at at the end of the US Open.’

 

 

 

 

The 34-year-old made it to Wimbledon after two hip surgeries in 2018 and 2019, when it was unclear whether the Briton would be able to play tennis again. Wimbledon was Murray’s first Grand Slam of this year, after he contracted Covid before the Australian Open and missed Roland Garros, and he reached the third round before losing to Denis Shapovalov in straight sets.

‘Obviously the Olympics was a great experience but it was tough because I obviously felt like I had built up some sort of momentum during Wimbledon – I was obviously very disappointed with how it ended, but then if I reflect on the build up to Queens and Wimbledon, I couldn’t really have expected much more than that,’ Murray said.
