Andy Murray reveals how he will spend Christmas as he prepares for comeback at Australian Open

Andy Murray reveals how he will spend Christmas as he prepares for comeback at Australian Open

ANDY MURRAY has revealed that the will spend Christmas away from the UK to ensure he is best prepared for the Australian Open.

The Scot is expected to fly to Miami this weekend to step up his training regime ahead of his return next year.

The 30-year-old is confident he will recover fully from the hip injury which has kept him out of competition since Wimbledon but says he will return only when he is ready and 100 per cent fit.

Murray will have a short break over the Christmas period with his family in Brisbane to acclimatise to the conditions.

Meanwhile, the former world number one has recently set up a sports management company, 77, where he will look to guide young stars of the future.

Golfer Matthew Fitzpatrick, tennis player Aidan McHugh and sprinters Shannon and Cheriece Hylton are the only current athletes under Murray’s regime.

The move shows that Murray currently has one eye on life after tennis.

But he is keen to work closely with them, alongside his own commitments.

“When you start out on a career in sport, it’s not easy for athletes or their families to make the right decisions or find the right people to trust,” said Murray.

“Growing up I made decisions that, with experience, I might not have made now. The three athletes we are working with are all bright, hard-working athletes, who are doing plenty of things right, but if I can offer them some advice along the way, then great.

“I’m looking forward to building a stable of talent across a variety of different sports.”.

Murray, who started the year as world No 1 but fell this week to No 16 in the rankings, had not played a match in public since he limped to defeat by Sam Querrey in the Wimbledon quarter-finals. He had hoped to return at the US Open at the end of August but pulled out less than 48 hours before it was due to start.

The Australia Open gets underway on Monday, January 15.

Rafael Nadal will head into the new year as the number one player in the world after a sublime 2017.

Roger Federer will start second, while Murray is way back in 16th after an injury-ridden campaign.

However, his ranking should soon go up with a strong start to the new season
