Andy Murray’s cramp problems remain a mystery after tests came back significantly ahead of the US Open.
The 35-year-old has generally coped well with hot and humid conditions throughout his career but has struggled in recent weeks, struggling in three different games, including his loss to Cameron Norrie in Cincinnati last week.
Murray underwent a sweat test to get to the bottom of the problem, but that showed no problems.
“It was all good,” he said. “The sweat test was good. blood test was good. No diseases.”
While that’s positive news, Murray is still unclear as to the cause of the problem.
“I think it would be nice if you were one thing, you were lacking in something, maybe that’s why,” he said.
“But at least now I know it’s more likely to be due to conditioning or hydration or diet. This is something that I can of course also control a little bit.
“But I feel like I’m in decent shape so it’s a concern. I don’t really know why it happened. The last few days of practice I’ve been feeling a bit better with the conditions and everything so hopefully I’ll be ok on Monday.”
Murray makes his debut against Argentina’s 24th seed Francisco Cerundolo at Louis Armstrong Stadium on Monday.
