Murray braced for tough return
Andy Murray is bracing himself a potentially tough run of matches as he continues in singles action at the Winston-Salem Open.
The Brit was back on the singles court last week but his first match since undergoing hip surgery in January didn't go to plan.
Murray was handed a tough draw upon his return to action and subsequently lost in straight sets to Richard Gasquet in Cincinnati.
He will have another opportunity to build momentum this week when he faces American Tennys Sandgren in the opening round of the Winston-Salem Open.
"All matches are difficult at this level, and when you've been out for a long time, and with the severity of the operation I had, it is going to take time," Murray told BBC Sport.
"I'm not setting my expectations too high, but I do want to try and get matches in just now. So I'd like to get through a few matches here, and hopefully have a decent run."
