Andy Murray to take brief hiatus as wife Kim expects their third child
Andy Murray will take a hiatus because his wife Kim is currently expecting the couples third child in the coming weeks.
Murray is likely a break but he is ready reunite should Kim enter a young labour and to leave Antwerp.
Obviously the baby can come any time from pretty much weekly. Id adjust my schedule if I could not go to Antwerp, the former world No 1 told The Times.
My strategy would be to perform Antwerp and then I am done through to the Davis Cup (November 18-25). In case the baby came early, Id miss Antwerp and then maybe play in the Paris Masters (October 26-November 3).
The 32-year-old has returned to singles contest following a career-saving hip.
A rush into the quarter-finals of the China Open last week where world No 5 Dominic Thiem beat him – was followed by a defeat to world no more 12 Fabio Fognini at the Shanghai Masters.
Murray is pleased with his progress and also the three-time Grand Slam winner is optimistic of being able to compete with the worlds finest going forward.
He added:I am surprised with how smooth (my yield ) has been. I had two years of having plenty of pain after every match. I play with a match, the human body hurts, I have some pain in my back, the muscles are tired and things like that, but that my hip is nice and that I couldnt recall what that was like before.
Ive been competitive so far. I will get on the market if I can keep advancing a couple of things over the next few months, and perhaps theres an outside chance.
I want to be aggressive in the big events against the top players. I am not there yet, but Im closer than I was a month before, and even nearer than a few months back.
Murray is the first participant to go back to the singles match following his kind of operation, though Bob Bryan has managed to keep his doubles career after a similar procedure.
If he suffer an additional injury to the place Murray would be ready to call it.
I now know that it is not important where or when I finish my career, he explained. If I had an alternative hip injury, I probably would not keep going. My hip could break and that would be it. If that occurred Id be finished.
But there is not any indication of that happening any time soon. It appears to be getting stronger all the time.
