Murray has also admitted that he has turned down a number of female stars that were looking to play with him in the mixed doubles competition as he believes it may be too much of an ask as he continue to recover from surgery in January.
Murray said: ‘Physically I’m fine. I’am having second thoughts about playing in the mixed doubles because I have spoken to a few people and they say matches can get backed up at the end of the tournament.
‘I’ll need to speak to my team before making a decision.’
