Andy Murray Returns To Full Time Training, Favoured Ahead Of US Open

Andy Murray Returns To Full Time Training, Favoured Ahead Of US Open

The final Grand Slam of the year, the US Open, is fast approaching and Andy Murray is sure to be feeling the pressure after he crashed out of Wimbledon in the quarter-finals. Murray had back surgery in September 2013 and was out for three months before returning in December.

Andy Murray Returns To Full Time Training, Favoured Ahead Of US Open

Andy Murray is giving training 100% before the US Open and bookies have picked him as second favourite to win.

At the beginning of the year he wasn’t able to train fully due to his back and he said he felt he lacked physical strength during Wimbledon. However, this week he said, “Now I can start training again 100%, not holding back.”

This news, combined with his announcement last week that that former Wimbledon champion Amelie Mauresmo will remain his coach for the “foreseeable future” has immediately improved the odds on Murray winning at the US Open.

Most bookies have Murray as second favourite to win with odds of around 7/2.

Novak Djokovic is the current favourite with odds of 6/5 while Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer come in at third and fourth respectively.

This week Murray, Djokovic and Federer are all playing in the Rogers Cup in Toronto and the outcome is sure to also have an impact on the odds before the US Open begins on 25th August.
