Murray considers his options

Jamie Murray says he is considering missing the US Open and focusing his preparations towards a return to professional tennis on clay ahead of the rearranged French Open in September.

The option is if you don't play in the doubles, you are just sitting in a hotel room, in an airport and so it is not really a great second option for the players Jamie Murray

Murray, a former world doubles number one is currently ranked within the top 30, believes the fight for places in the 32 draw will be intense, especially during the warm-up events in Washington and the rescheduled Cincinnati.

Asked whether he would travel to the US for the tour’s resumption, he told ‘Sky Sports News’: “I saw that the first tournament is in Washington so every man and his dog will want to play in that tournament so the cuts will be incredibly high. To be honest I don’t think I would even get into the tournament.

“And then Cincinnati… again, I mean, everyone wants to play matches, wants to compete. The option is if you don’t play in the doubles, you are just sitting in a hotel room, in an airport and so it is not really a great second option for the players.

“I imagine a lot of the players will want to be out on court as much as they can.

“Potentially I could be just going over to New York for the US Open. I don’t know, for one tournament, maybe I am better to stay in Europe and then train for four-five weeks on clay.

“It is something that I need to look at and decide but definitely a few decisions to be made, but also some decisions that will be out of my control.”

Meanwhile he is concentrating on The Schroders Battle of the Brits which he is organising and kicks off on Tuesday at the NTC in Roehampton.
