Andy Murray has confirmed he is expecting wife Kim to birth to the couple’s third child at some stage over…
“Obviously the baby can come any time from pretty much next week. I would adjust my schedule if I couldn’t go to Antwerp,” Murray said in an interview with The Times.
“My plan is to play Antwerp and then I am done through to the Davis Cup (November 18-25). If the baby came early, I would miss Antwerp and then maybe play at the Paris Masters (October 26-November 3).”
After being plagued by serious hip injuries for the last two years, Murray has returned to action pain-free over the last couple of months.
“I am surprised with how smooth (my return) has been. I had two years of having lots of pain after every single match. Now I play a match, the body hurts, I have some pain in my back, the muscles are tired and things like that, but my hip is fine and I couldn’t remember what that was like before.
“I have been competitive so far. If I can keep improving a few things over the next few months, then maybe there is an outside chance I can get around there.
“I would like to be competitive in the big events against the best players. I’m not there yet, but I’m closer than I was a month ago, and much closer than a couple of months ago.”
