ANDY MURRAY will need to adjust quickly from Munich to Madrid as this weekend sees the climax of the 2015 Mutua Madrid open. And Rafa Nadal, who said in his first press conference, “I’m sure the fans will help me,” won’t be needing any time to get used to the Spanish humidity.
However, newly married Murray could be tying his wedding ring to his trainers again as he tries to make a quick adjustment from the weather in Munich.
Murray says it was great to win his first clay title in Munich but he is now excited to compete in Madrid once again. He was working on Tuesday to make a one-day turnaround from slow, heavy conditions in Munich to the high-altitude, faster-bouncing clay of the Spanish capital, in order to be ready for the challenge at the Madrid Masters.
This year he appears to be gunning for the title ‘King of the clay.’ After winning in Munich, he will have his sights set on another title here this week. And with the absence of his nemesis Djokovic, he may be on target to take a seat on the throne.
