Lendl confident in Murray's fitness


Murray was set to play two matches at this week's Hurlingham Classic before he made a decision to skip the exhibition event due to a sore hip.

But coach Ivan Lendl insisted there is no need to panic even though Murray will now go his first match at SW19 on Monday with only one full match on grass under his belt.

Defending champion Andy Murray's troubled build-up to Wimbledon continued yesterday as he withdrew from playing an exhibition tennis match because of a hip problem.

But when asked if he was OK, Murray told Sunsport with a smile: "I haven't tested it yet".

Lendl added that Murray is "hitting the ball really well" and that he's satisfied by Murray's performance in practice.


"I don't care how good you are".

Murray was due to take on Frenchman Lucas Pouille in the tournament in the first match, however, on Tuesday morning it was announced that he would not take to the court because his hip was "a bit sore", leaving his fans tensed.

Murray has only played one grass-court match this year, suffering a shock first-round defeat by world number 90 Jordan Thompson at Queen's.

It might just be a precautionary measure but bearing in mind the series of injuries and illnesses he has had in the last six months, it seems ill-luck is following him.

Murray is facing hard times for the last one year and after an early exit from the French Open, the British player is searching to regain his form. I thought past year was more hard because in two weeks we didn't finish one practice on our own terms.
