Andy Murray: I am pain-free and targeting a return to competitive tennis
Andy Murray says he is pain-free and hopeful of returning to tennis soon – although he is taking nothing for granted.
The former British and world number one made a tearful admission before the Australian Open that his comeback bid had failed and he was likely to retire after Wimbledon this year.
However, he has since undergone a new hip resurfacing procedure, and is in a much more positive frame of mind than he was before.
“I want to continue playing,” he told reporters at Queen’s Club on Wednesday.
“I said that in Australia. The issue is I don’t know if it’s possible.
“I’m a lot happier now than I was 12 months ago and since having the op. I have no pain in the hip.
“I was in pain for a long time. The rehab has been slow, it’s been going pretty well. I need to wait and see how things progress.
“If it’s possible, I’d love to compete again.”
