Wawrinka cautions Murray against hurried recovery: 'I felt dead'

Stan Wawrinka sent a huge warning to Andy Murray on how to work during the recovery process. The Swiss player suggested Murray not to be in a rush, at least looking at what he went through in the last months. 'Well, my first match was at the Australian Open, and two days after I was not feeling pain or whatever, but my body was completely off.

I felt dead,' Wawrinka said after his loss at Queen's on Wednesday. I lost in my next match, but I couldn’t really do anything. That’s mentally tough because you have never experienced that in the past. “So you need to learn from it, you need to adapt and accept it and be patient with yourself and what you’re going to do.

For the first match, I think Andy was for sure moving, playing well, knowing that he’s been away for a year. But if I take my experience, what’s important is how he’s going to be in the next match he plays.

I know the feeling. We have a different injury, but for me, I was also similar. I was only allowed to do a certain amount of time on the court or on the physical end.' He also added, 'When you come back on the tour, you need to still be patient, because it’s not going to come back like that and you’re going to be the same player as one year before.

But if I take my experience, what’s important is how he’s going to be in the next match he plays.' Source: Vanguard ALSO READ: Roger Federer's chances at Wimbledon: Novak Djokovic gives verdict
