Andy Murray has said he just wants more match practice as he chases his first singles victory of his injury comeback on Monday against a teenage player who has scraped just $150 in career earnings.
Murray has shunned the bright lights of the US Open in New York to play in a second-tier Challenger event in Mallorca at the tennis academy run by Rafael Nadal.
"I wasn't (coming) here to think necessarily about trying to win the tournament, I just wanted to play competitive matches," Murray said.
"There are some good players here, guys around 100 in the world, so I'm hoping to get the opportunity to play against some of them and keep testing myself.
"I feel good, I got here nice and early to get used to the conditions so we'll see what happens."
