- Murray: ‘I’m looking forward to what the future has to hold’
As the tennis world converged in Paris for the second grand slam tournament of the season at the end of last month, Andy Murray chose a different path. He is playing at the highest level of professional tennis with a metal right hip, after all, so it is advisable for him to preserve his body when he can.
While his opponents were still playing matches he trained, built his form and grew accustomed to grass long before most others and throughout his week in Stuttgart his results reflected well on his preparation. But on Sunday afternoon, in his first grass court final since 2016, Murray’s tournament ended with some concern as he struggled with an abdominal injury and was beaten by Matteo Berrettini, 6-4, 5-7, 6-3.
