TENNIS: INJURY PUTS MURRAY’S QUARTER FINALS APPEARANCE IN DOUBT

Andy Murray says he will play in Great Britain’s Davis Cup quarter-final against Serbia in July – if his body allows him.

Andy Murray made his return to Britain’s Davis cup just last month.

The Scot led Great Britain to their maiden Davis cup title for 79 years in 2015. This time they continue to progress in the ongoing edition of the competition as they have secured a place in the Quarter finals.

However, the sportsman might not be on for his country against in July due to health issues. The tie will be played on clay just five days after the Wimbledon final.

Andy Murray has declared he will play in Great Britain’s Davis Cup quarter-final against Serbia in July – if his body allows him.

Speaking with BBC Sports, Murray said “The plan is to play but it is going to be difficult. “

“I need to play it a little bit by ear, as well, because I just don’t know how the body is going to respond.”

It is likely that the cup’s quarter final could make Murray go head to head with world number one Novak Djokovic.

However, this is not clear yet as it is not certain the Serbian will take part in the competition.

Murray’s schedule will see him playing on clay in the build-up to next month’s French Open before switching to grass at Queen’s Club and Wimbledon.

Murray faces another challenge of having to defend his Olympic gold medal in Brazil in August, with that tournament to be played on hard courts.

“These next couple of months are going to be extremely difficult,” he added.

“Changing surfaces – almost on a weekly basis – does increase the chance of injury significantly: not many players would go from playing a grass court tournament one week straight onto the clay the following week with only a couple of days preparation time.

“So I need to make sure my body is good and healthy through the summer because it’s going to be a long summer with the Olympics, many long flights, change of surfaces, different continents and different conditions – so I just now need to respect how my body feels as well,” he recounts.
