Andy Murray says tennis players should ‘probably’ be required to take Covid vaccine

Sports
Andy Murray thinks tennis players should "probably" be required to take a Covid-19 vaccine to be able to continue to play on the tour.World number one Novak Djokovic said in April he "wouldn't want to be forced to take a vaccine to be able to travel".But Murray hopes players would "do that for the good of the sport, providing everything has proved to be safe"."I'm confident that players would be into it if it meant the tour going back to normality," said the Briton, 33."I guess we're not going to know the long-term effects potentially for a while. But what I've been hearing on the TV and on the news is that there shouldn't really be any long-term effects."Djokovic, who tested positive for Covid-19 in June, accepted he would have a difficult decision to make should taking the vaccine ever b...

Ex-NFL star DeMarco Murray to become Oklahoma running backs coach

Sports
Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Former NFL star DeMarco Murray has been named the running backs coach for the Oklahoma Sooners football team. Oklahoma announced the hire Monday. Murray, 31, played for the Sooners from 2007 to 2010 before he was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft. The three-time Pro Bowl selection last played in the NFL during the 2017 season for the Tennessee Titans. Murray served as the running backs coach at Arizona in 2019. He was a TV analyst in 2018 for Fox Sports. "This is very surreal," Murray said. "Obviously I never thought I'd be back coaching at the place where it all started for me. Having the opportunity to come back and be among great coaches and be with some of the people I grew up with is exciting. I'm thankful for the opportunity co...

Andy Murray does not tend to sugar coat his answers.He accepts there are reasons to be cheerful after his 6-4 6-4 defeat by Richard Gasquet in Cincinnati, but admits he is "quite far away from where I would like to be".That is to be expected after just two weeks of dedicated practice before his first singles match for seven months. Murray will only play doubles in New York, when the US Open gets under way in a fortnight. But you can now consider him a singles player above all else once again. A singles player who expects to be back in his peak physical condition in January: 12 months after the second operation on his right hip. "I think nine to 12 months after the operation is when I would e...
