Andy Murray is convinced that his chronic sore knee which has flared slightly this week in the run-up to Roland Garros will come right in time for his first match at the French Open.
"I've just got a sore knee, I get it all the time. I've had it since I was a kid, so it's something that I've had to manage throughout my whole career," the Scot said during an exhibition in Paris.
"Some days are worse than others and it was a little bit sore towards the end. But I'm sure it'll be fine by the start of the tournament."
Murray is trying to recapture the form which led him into the Australian Open final four months ago, where he was humbled by Roger Federer. His clay season has been decidedly mediocre with a 3-3 record highlighted by a Madrid quarter-final.
"It's all well and good winning the Masters Series but the Slams are what is important. This year, the one slam I played, I played very, very well - the best tennis of my life," he told British media.
Murray confessed to "a little dip after that in Miami and in Monte Carlo."
"But I feel good again, I'm winning matches and this is now a very important five, six weeks ahead. I've got the French Open and Wimbledon coming up and they're the tournaments where I want to try to perform my best."
