Andy Murray: My hip has been brilliant and completely pain-free so far
Andy Murray says that his he “no pain at all” in his hip despite getting all the way to the final of the Queen’s doubles.
The former British and world number one is making his comeback from major surgery this week, although no one, Murray included, really knew how his hip would stand up to the stress test of a week of competitive tennis.
However, ahead of Sunday’s final, Murray has given it a resounding thumbs up.
“My back’s a bit stiff,” he said when asked how he is feeling physically.
“You’re sort of getting down low for a lot of balls and you’re always kind of in a crouched-over position in doubles a bit more than when you’re in singles.
“I’m not used to that as much, so my back has been a little bit stiff after some of the matches. My arm is a little bit tired from serving and stuff.
“But my hip’s been brilliant so far. I don’t feel anything at all. It’s amazing.”
