The 30-year-old had described his foot’s lead-up to the tournament as a long one after he underwent hip surgery on 11 January. However, Murray said he was “feeling fantastic” on Sunday, the day after his defeat to Sousa, and joked that he might just lose it during the match.
After the match Murray joked that he was looking for the ring on his sock, and had even started putting it in the cupboard under the stairs because he couldn’t stand to look at it. His spokesman, the associate secretary for the LTA, Melanie South, said: “He has now gone and found it in the locker room. He always has a ring in his sock, and it went missing but thankfully he hasn’t dropped it.”
South added that Murray hopes to practise in the gym at the LTA’s National Tennis Centre on Monday.
