After an appearance in Zurich about a week ago alongside Roger Federer in a match for charity doubts were raised as if Murray would be fit for Monte-Carlo.
The world number one had been training at the Patrick Mouratoglu Academy in Nice before a quick stop off in Zurich and then immediately travelled to Monte-Carlo.
During the match against Federer which you can’t really judge a players fitness on one notable problem was the speed of the serve.
Murray had missed Miami due to this elbow injury which meant he couldn’t find power on the serve and seemed to be struggling with it in this exhibition match but after training for what would have been five days the Brit has said that he has been training and serving fine throughout the week so maybe decided to take a bit off it as the exhibition isn’t obviously a competitive match.
Andy Murray being the top seed for the tournament will not be in action until Wednesday which does mean as well if he is to get to the final then he will have to play five days running with the final being on Sunday 23rd.
We don’t yet know who the Brit will be up against but it will be either big serving Gilles Muller who was formerly coached by Andy’s coach Jamie Delgado or Tommy Robredo with the Spaniard using a protective ranking to get himself into the main draw this week in Monte Carlo.
On day 1 in Monte Carlo a game of spot Andy Murray took place and the world number one was spotted watching fellow Brits Dan Evans and Kyle Edmund battling it out against each other and was joined by good friend of his Grigor Dimitrov and we also saw Jamie Delgado and Ross Hutchins watching on as well.
