Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray has vowed to compete as long as his body stays in good shape but said he was a “major injury” away from retirement.

Former number one Murray is currently ranked 49th in the ATP rankings after suffering multiple injuries throughout his career, including hip surgery in 2018 and 2019.

“If my body is in good shape and I’m still consistent, I’ll keep playing,” said Murray, 35.

“But I can’t look that far ahead with the age I’m at and with the issues I’ve had. If I had a major injury I probably wouldn’t try to come back from it.”

Murray said he is in better shape now ahead of the Australian Open, to be held in Melbourne from January 16-29.

From 2023 InNewCL Sports will hold the exclusive broadcasting rights to the US Open – take a look back to 2012 when Andy Murray won his first-ever Grand Slam title at Flushing Meadows.

He was eliminated in the second round of the season-opening major that year.

“I spent three weeks in Florida getting my body in order and working on my game and it was going really well,” Murray said.

“I’m definitely in better shape than I used to be. A lot of work has been done in the gym to build up my stamina and stamina a bit and I’m hoping that will help me next year.”

Murray will be part of the Scotland team that faces England in the Battle of the Brits exhibition tournament in Aberdeen later on Wednesday and Thursday.

Murray expects a hard fought Battle of the Brits match

Murray has predicted there will be a major competitive advantage when his team Scotland take on team England in this week’s Battle of the Brits.

Neighboring nations go head-to-head in this showcase event, which will again be chaired by Murray’s brother Jamie in his role as Tournament Director.

Bragging rights rather than ranking points are at stake, but with pride to play and a healthy crowd expected to flock to Aberdeen’s P&J Live to see the action, the former Wimbledon champion expects a tough contest.

Andy Murray describes Rodger Federer as a great player and his retirement as a sad day for tennis

Andy Murray is in action for Scotland on all three days, first against England’s Jack Draper, Britain number two Dan Evans in Thursday’s marquee singles and teaming with Jamie in doubles against Joe Salisbury and Neal Skupski to close the show.

Paul Jubb forms the away team, while Jonny O’Hara and Aidan McHugh complete the Scottish four-man squad.

“All the players who are here are very competitive. They’ve all made me, Jamie, Neal and Joe world number one,” Murray said.

“It’s a bit like the Laver Cup; it was an event that was considered an exhibition, but when you get there and play in front of a large audience, you’re surrounded by the people you’re surrounded by, it awakens your competitive instincts. All players will do their best to win the games.”
