       Andy Murray and Wayne Rooney play tennis- racket and foot- in Washington DC ahead of the Citi Open

He is scheduled to play American Mackenzie McDonald on Monday evening, with the match marking his return to the hard courts for the first time since March 2017.

"I don't know all the details or numbers and the actual facts of how much everyone individually gets tested", Murray said.

The former world number one and three-time grand slam victor was unable to play at Wimbledon in July after initially making his comeback at Eastbourne and Queen's, meaning his ranking slid down to a career-low 832. It's very hard to recover from that and not feel good so that's also not good for the game'. A lot of anxiety about that.

McDonald deserved the opening set by breaking Murray in two of his three service games and Murray was still searching for that match sharpness, a stronger second serve and the length of his ground-strokes was troubling him at times. "It takes time after you've been out for a long period to get the match sharpness back".

He will now face Kyle Edmund - the man who has succeeded him as Great Britain's number one and beat Murray in Eastbourne last month. And so in some situations like what happened at Wimbledon I don't you're going to get that when someone plays for six and a half hours.

Murray said he began working out on hardcourts as Wimbledon began to build his fitness for this week.

It's the third trip to Washington for Murray, who lost the 2006 final to France's Arnaud Clement. "I cut the unforced errors a little bit in the second set and started serving better".

Going by how he's playing now, it may take Murray till the end of the year to be back to winning titles/matches over top players. "If I do that, I'll win more matches and my ranking will move up". Murray made minor adjustments and improvements to his game, winning more points off his forehand, improving the pace and depth on his regular groundstrokes.

Murray exchanged a few practice rallies with Rooney, who came to Washington earlier this month to play for DC United of Major League Soccer. Murray said that he feels in some ways he will be starting his career all over again with this tournament. I enjoyed it but I don't think it's something I would do full time like after I finish playing.
