World #3 Andy Murray has been using the time since the Australian Open for a little R&R, and for a long training block in the Miami area in preparation for Indian Wells, Miami, and the clay court season.
Here's some of what Murray said in his blog on Feb 13:"To prepare myself for my next training block, I spent a few days just doing some light training off court, going on runs, some gentle yoga and pilates and generally just preparing my body. Iím now back out in Miami and ready for my next block, which hopefully should put me in good shape for Indian Wells and Miami in the US, and the upcoming clay season in Europe.
Iím looking forward to playing the clay this year, itís not usually my favoured surface but it is still a very important time of the season for me. It takes a long time for me to get used to it, but I believe I have every chance of winning the French Open and like I do with every tournament I playÖ. I will make sure that my body is ready for it.
Itís no secret that I love Miami, and its great to be back out here preparing. It also gives me a chance to catch a Miami Heat game or two. Iím sure Iíll definitely be playing around with my fantasy football team as well, to make sure I stay top of the league come the end of the football season!"
I think Murray would love to take home the Sony Ericsson Miami title and is working hard to do so.
