Andy Murray spoke to reporters in a press conference in Montreal. The British player said: "When you are coming back from an injury, there needs to be a slow progression. This week, I could have played a three-set singles match.
But there is a difference between doing it once and potentially consecutive five or six days. The body needs to be ready to face such a workload so that I do not pick another injury again. I am used to competing again. My body handles the effort well, better than it did during the grass-court season.
I take it one day at a time, but I feel better week by week... I feel pretty close to the goal." Asked if he feels capable to compete with Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal in the future again, Murray added: "If I will ever get back to a high game level, it would be one of the most difficult things I have ever done.
The last years have been really difficult. I played many matches and that's another kind of clash for me. So far I was pretty lucky in my career. There the first time I have to fight to be back on court." Whether he wins or not, Murray is aware of a thing: "I recently realized that, even if I cannot play tennis, I will be happy.
I always thought tennis was the most important thing since when it became something big early in my career. But now I know I will still have a good life."
