Can Murray Lift Himself to Claim the ATP Tour Title?

October 01, 2016

Despite more Andy Murray heroics and his stunning single’s victory over Argentina’s Guido  and Great Britain’s defence of the Davis Cup ended in semi-final heartache. At the end of Murray’s last day singles win, however, the three-time slam winner slumped to his chair and almost immediately declared that he is need of a physical break. With the ATP Tour just around the corner will Murray be able to lift himself to take it all?

At the end of Murray’s last day singles win, however, the three-time slam winner slumped to his chair and almost immediately declared that he is need of a physical break.

After all, it has been another momentous summer for Murray. After reaching his first French Open final in May, he was re-joined by Ivan Lendl and won consecutive tournaments at Queens’ Club, Wimbledon and the Rio Olympics. These exploits, coupled with his heroic Davis Cup performances,

These exploits, coupled with his heroic Davis Cup performances, have left the Scot exhausted and contemplating an uncertain end to the season.

The China Open will be Next up for Andy Murray in the ATP Tour

With this in mind, Murray will miss the Chengdu Open and the Shenzhen Open scheduled to start this week, as he takes a break and spends some well-earned time at home. In fact, his return to competitive action is now scheduled for 3rd October, where he will travel to Beijing for one of the stellar events in the ATP calendar (the China Open). While this is a coveted tournament, it is not one that held much joy for Murray, with the Scot having failed to progress beyond the semi-finals during his time as a professional.

In fact, Serbian star and world number one Novak Djokovic has dominated the tournament with six wins in seven outings since 2009, meaning that he is the clear favourite according to the very latest China Open odds.

This may make the tournament a strange selection for Murray, but after a couple of weeks off-court he will be keen to return to action. It is also crucial that he remains match-fit and as sharp as possible during the next six weeks. The prestigious ATP Tour Finals scheduled to start in London on November 13

The prestigious ATP Tour Finals scheduled to start in London on November 13th at the O2. Scotsman Murray has already qualified for the season finale as the second seed, and he will be hoping to put his disappointing history in the tournament behind him this time around.

Can Andy End his Season on a High Note?

Typically, Andy hasn’t enjoyed great season finales as a professional, largely thanks to the effort that he puts into his game for the remainder of the year. His commitment to the Great Britain Davis Cup cause has clearly taken a considerable toll, so Murray will need to make the most of this period of rest if he is to break past trends. With the Chinese Open and the Shanghai Master up next for the British number one (ahead of the ATP Finals), he must ensure that he is physically and mentally sharp if he is to finish the season strongly.
