The Citizen (KZN) - - Sport -

Lon­don – For­mer world No 1 Andy Mur­ray must build up his fit­ness dur­ing the Euro­pean clay court sea­son but should con­sider skip­ping the French Open to be fresh for Wim­ble­don, his for­mer coach Alex Cor­retja has said.

The 32-year-old Bri­ton missed the Aus­tralian Open due to a pelvic in­jury sus­tained at the Davis Cup Fi­nals and then pulled out of tour­na­ments at Mont­pel­lier and Rot­ter­dam.

Spa­niard Cor­retja said Mur­ray, who re­cov­ered from hip surgery to win the An­twerp ti­tle in Oc­to­ber, should pri­ori­tise Wim­ble­don for his Grand Slam sin­gles come­back hav­ing won the ti­tle in 2013 and 2016.
