Judy Murray speaks about Andy Murray’s fitness & his availability for exhibition match Vs Federer

Judy Murray speaks about Andy Murray’s fitness & his availability for exhibition match Vs Federer

Andy Murray plans to play his scheduled charity exhibition against Roger Federer in the offseason, his mother, Judy, confirmed while participating at a kids coaching session.

The Scot is set to clash off against the 19-time Grand Slam champion in Glasgow next month. Murray hasn’t played since Wimbledon as he is still recovering from a hip injury.

The 30-year-old missed the entire US hard court swing — including the US Open — where he pulled out at the last moment. Murray announced last week that he is also out of the upcoming China Open Beijing and Shanghai Masters.

He also made it clear that he will “likely” miss the Vienna Open and Paris Masters. Mother Judy says the official date for her son’s return is not set, but he shouldn’t have problems to play the exhibition match.

“He’s going to be fine by then,” she told BBC, but also said the three-time Grand Slam champion had not yet set a date for his return to tour.

Murray recently announced he was withdrawing from Beijing and Shanghai, and would “most likely” miss his other scheduled events this season, Vienna and the Paris Masters.

“I think that’s the sensible thing to do because you never know how your body is going to respond,” said Judy Murray. “It’s quite a different thing playing exhibition matches to playing on the tour, where you have to win five matches to win a tournament.”

But she added that Murray was keen to return.

“He’s carrying on his rehabilitation at the moment, doing everything he can to get back into shape,” she said.

Murray has dropped to No. 3 in the rankings.
