Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray admits he is a bit worried after his cramp issues emerged once again in Cincinnati. After struggling with cramps in Newport and Washington, Murray started experiencing cramps in the third set of his Cincinnati second round match versus Cameron Norrie.

In the end, the cramps proved to be too much for Murray to overcome as Norrie won 3-6 6-3 6-4. Murray said he felt cramp issues “had an impact” on the outcome of the match. “I think pretty much every tennis player in their career has cramped usually in these sorts of conditions,” Murray said, per Tennis365.

“But the consistency of it for me is a big concern. It’s not something that I have really experienced. I have experienced cramping but not consistently like over a number of tournaments. It’s a big concern for me because it’s not easy to play when it gets bad like it was at the end [of the match].

Going into the US Open, Murray admits he is worried about often being hampered by cramp issues and he will try to find a solution for the issue ahead of the final Grand Slam tournament of the season.

“It’s a big concern for me that and something that I need to address and find a solution for,” Murray noted. “No one knows exactly why cramps happen. There are many reasons, whether its hydration, whether it’s the food that you have taken in, whether it’s fatigue and lack of conditioning, stress.

I need to try and understand what’s going on there”. This summer, Murray only has one victory and three losses on hard courts. After losing his openers in Washington and Montreal, Murray beat Stan Wawrinka in the Cincinnati first round. It remains to be seen if Murray will avoid cramp issues at the US Open.
