Murray should skip French Open, feels former coach
Murray's former coach Alex Corretja has advised that the former should miss French Open this year to stand a better chance at performing in the Wimbledon.
"He should use the clay-court season to get enough matches to be ready for grass. Because if he skips the clay-court season, there is going to be such a long gap before the grass," he said, reports Telegraph.
Playing the French Open could be very demanding, feels Corretja
"And, the grass is only three weeks so it is difficult to get the feeling. If for some reason he feels he can be a little bit risky, maybe he should sacrifice the French Open, because it's very demanding. He should consider that," added Corretja.
Corretja feels Murray should prioritize Wimbledon and Olympics
Speaking further on the issue, Corretja felt that Murray should prioritize playing in the Wimbledon, which is the most prestigious Grand Slam of all, followed by the greatest sporting event, the Tokyo Olympics.
"He needs to go thinking that those matches are the best preparation. I could have to be ready for Wimbledon, and that's the only thing he needs to know," he concluded.
