Murray might withdraw from Australian Open

Johannesburg, Nov 1 (ANI): Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has said that he will only compete in next year's Australian Open if he feels he has a major chance of winning it.

According to Sport24, Murray is now working his way back to full fitness, but said that he will not cut any corners in his preparations for the Australian Open, which begins on January 13.

The Scot said that he would be disappointed to miss the Australian Open, if he does, because it is a Grand Slam, which is a tournament all the players want to play at.

However, he added that when a player starts setting targets, especially when he is coming back from having surgery on the back, it is important that he does not come back just to play a match or to the Australian Open.

He further said that whether he can make it or not depends on how things go once he gets back on the tennis court. (ANI)
