Murray ‘mentally’ planning for US Open

first_imgTennis chiefs last week cancelled a tournament in Washington DC due to mark the resumption of the men’s tennis season over “continued uncertainties”.Several leading figures have cast doubts over the US Open, including world number one Novak Djokovic, who earlier this month said he was undecided over whether to travel for the tournament. “Hopefully it can go ahead but, if not, I’m also OK with that,” Murray said in comments reported by the Guardian. “It’s not like I’m saying it must go ahead. We need to try to get back to competing when it’s safe to do so.”Some sports have gone back, and seem to have done pretty well — football, for example. The issue for us is the travel.”Murray, still working his way back from injury, suggested he would probably try to compete at the ATP Western and Southern Open, which has been switched to Flushing Meadows, as a warm-up event ahead of the US Open. Andy Murray is “mentally” planning for next month’s US Open but admits he is apprehensive about the return of tennis following the coronavirus shutdown. The former world number one is taking part in the Battle of the Brits Team Tennis event in London this week and remains focused on the showpiece hard-court event in New York, scheduled to start on August 31.The British player told the Metro he was expecting the US Open, which he won in 2012, to go ahead.  Topics :center_img “We have to try and prepare that way,” he said. “We were saying four or five weeks ago, you know, we were pretty skeptical about it but mentally at some stage you need to start preparing and planning for that.””I’m planning to try and be there in shape for the US Open,” he added. “If it wasn’t happening my schedule for practicing, my rehab would all be a bit different. So yeah, mentally I’m planning for it to go ahead.”The three-time Grand Slam champion said he was still “apprehensive” but hopes tennis can follow other sports back into action after the long lay-off.Top-level men’s and women’s tennis has been suspended since March.last_img read more

first_imgBrighton, United Kingdom | AFP | Arsenal’s top-four bid suffered a setback as Jurgen Locadia’s equaliser gave Brighton a 1-1 draw at the Amex Stadium on Wednesday.Unai Emery’s side had taken an early lead through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s fine first half strike.But Locadia levelled for Brighton before half-time and the Gunners couldn’t find a winner after the interval.Arsenal have won only once in their last four games in all competitions, a frustrating sequence that started when their 22-match unbeaten run ended at Southampton on December 16.The north Londoners climb to fourth place in the Premier League, but fifth placed Chelsea could move back above them if they avoid defeat at Watford later on Wednesday.Emery started Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette up front and the pair were quickly into the groove.Despite not often starting together as central strikers this term, Aubameyang and Lacazette have established a good understanding and both were denied well by goalkeeper Mat Ryan early on.Even so, it took just seven minutes for the pair to put Arsenal ahead. Lacazette poked through for Aubameyang, who curled a fine effort high into the far corner for his 15th goal of the season.Brighton, beaten in their previous three games, thought they had equalised, only to see Glenn Murray’s effort ruled out.Murray bundled his way towards goal and forced the ball, seemingly, over the line.But it was adjudged to have been kicked out of the hands of Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno, who still scrambled back to attempt to claw the ball off the line.

Then March turned provider to tee up Locadia who glanced just wide.Iwobi almost won it late on when he blocked March’s clearance and the ball trickled just wide, but Arsenal were force to settle for a point.last_img read more
