‘I know I can return to a high level’ – Andy Murray issues positive injury update after Kyle Edmund loss

Andy Murray says his hip ‘feels good’ despite his defeat to Kyle Edmund at the Battle of the Brits, and he remains confident he can return to a ‘high level’ of tennis.

Murray lost 6-7 (2-7), 7-6 (7-5), 10-5 to Edmund in a highly competitive match-up on Wednesday, but was encouraged at how his body came through it.

And that, the former world number one says, is far more important than the result.

“To be honest, I am not bothered about the results of the match, after a match like that I hope my hip is OK, and I pull up well from it,” Murray said

“I know if my hip is good, my tennis will only improve and get better over the next few months. If I can get consistent practice.

“That is my hope. The hip feels good. If I play like that and do a few things better, sharpen up a couple of things, I will play high level tennis.

“My groin is a little bit sore today, I felt it in practice and at the beginning of my match, but as the match went on, it felt alright.

“That was good, positive. Then it’s pulling up the next day, see how you feel, not getting in a situation where you have to take two to three weeks off to recover basically.”

Andy Murray will now have to defeat James Ward to progress in the tournament.
