Murray fresh and ready to go after shingles setback

Andy Murray is ready and raring to go for the Dubai Tennis Championships after overcoming an illness following his return from the Australian Open.

The world number one suffered a shock fourth-round loss to Mischa Zverev at Melbourne Park last month, and has not played since.

He is back in action on the ATP Tour as the top seed in Dubai, facing a first-round match with Malek Jaziri, and insists he is feeling well again after suffering from shingles.

"I'm fine now, I've been training flat-out for the past few weeks," he said.

"I was a bit sick for 10 days, a couple of weeks, after I got back from Australia.

"I feel fresh and ready to go here. I had shingles. It's not terrible, but it's not great. I had to go easy for a little while, so I wasn't able to push that hard in training when I got back into it."
