Andy Murray: U.S. Open singles ‘not the target’ after Queen’s Club doubles win in return

first_img“I sort of have a bit of a decision to make,” he said. “I either set a goal of maybe trying to play singles post-U.S. Open and then I would maybe have a few weeks training. Two weeks training after Wimbledon and then maybe keep going with some doubles through the U.S. Open swing. “Or take a little bit more time to train and maybe give myself three or four weeks, another month of building up and playing some singles.”I could potentially try just before then at some of the tournaments, like Cincinnati or Winston-Salem. I could do something like that, but I need to see my team. I’m just really happy that my body’s fine, I’m feeling good, I’m healthy and I’m going to take my time.”I’m not going to rush this because I don’t want to and I don’t need to and if it means not playing singles until a bit later fine I’m just happy to be back on the court with no pain in my hip.” An emotional Murray said that his tennis career may be over when he pulled out of the Australian Open in January before going under the knife again.The 32-year-old hopes to play singles this season but is unsure how soon he will be able to go it alone.It really happened.Andy Murray.
