Late November is the time of the year where players go on holiday. Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic have both chosen Maldives as the place to take a rest with their respective families. The Swiss arrived at Cheval Blanc Randheli with his wife Mirka and their four children.
Djokovic is instead staying at One & Only Reethi Rah Maldives. In an interview with BBC Radio 4’s Today program Andy Murray was asked if his hip injury was caused by competing with Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
The British player said: “I don’t know if it was because of them or if it was my mentality. Or what I believed really that the harder that I worked the better I would be, which is quite a simplistic way of looking at things and I now realize that it’s not the correct way of looking at things.
So yeah, I would have done things differently when I was younger. I would have taken more breaks. I would have worked a bit smarter”, said Murray who did not hide he has a lot of regrets. Meanwhile, Maria Sharapova visited the Sporting Tennis Club in Turin, Italy.
The Russian is about to start her pre-season training with her coach Riccardo Piatti. “I did not know Turin and I am happy to see that it will host the ATP Finals”, said Sharapova.
