Andy Murray Feeling Better for US Open

Published

The long road back for Andy Murray carries on, as he continues his comeback from hip surgery, and Murray officially returned to the tour in June, and has seen his ranking drop since. But Murray is feeling better each time he goes out to play.

“The last few days, I practiced for a couple of hours each day with some of the players,” Murray said on Friday at the US Open media day, according to ESPN. “It’s been good. It’s been difficult. It’s just been quite — my tennis has been a bit of stop-starty.”

Murray has had major up and downs along the way, but seems to be getting back on track.

“All injuries are completely different,” Murray said. “Some are more serious than others. Someone is out for a few weeks with a muscle injury, it’s very different to somebody recovering from a surgery on certain parts of the body. It’s notoriously more difficult.”

“My body feels better than it did a few weeks ago,” Murray said.

“I do feel that once my body is right again — which takes time when you haven’t played many matches in a year — I’m sure that my level will be OK to get me competing at the top of the game again,” Murray said.

Alouettes Release Johnny Manziel

The Montreal Alouettes have released former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel.

Montreal traded two first round draft picks to acquire Manziel last year, and the CFL has announced that it will not approve a Manziel contract should another CFL team attempt to sign him.

Apparently, Manziel violated his contract with the Alouettes, according to the team.

With the AAF in play, and the XFL arriving next season, it is likely that Manziel is looking to latch on with either of those two leagues as opposed to continuing to play in the CFL.

However, if Manziel is looking to draw significant interest his play in the CFL left much to be desired.

Manziel appeared in 8 games for Montreal during his tenure, throwing 5 touchdowns verse 7 interceptions, certainly disappointing numbers that won’t elicit much excitement.

Toronto has been revamping their defensive line and Johnson is another addition that they hope will aid them in their efforts.
