Shingles, an elbow injury and illness…

It’s not been a great first half of 2017 for the world number one Andy Murray…

But in his latest BBC Sport column, he says he can improve in time for the second round of Roland Garros this week….

“It’s been a frustrating start to 2017 but hopefully the illness and injury problems are finally behind me just in time for some of the biggest tournaments of the year.

“I’m still coughing my way around Roland Garros as I get over the effects of my latest bout of sickness – the more I talk, the more I want to cough – but I felt fine during my match on Tuesday and happy to get through to the second round.”
