Andy Murray probably will return to tennis after surgery, mum Judy reveals
Former world number one Andy Murray probably will return to competitive tennis, his mother believes.
Murray conceded defeat in his latest attempt to return at the Australian Open before emotionally admitting to the world that he is likely to retire this year, probably at Wimbledon.
However, since then he has undergone another surgery, and that appears to have at least brightened his prospects.
“I think he will (return),” Judy Murray was quoted as saying by Sky Sports, “(but) I think he’s aware that it might not be possible.”
Whether or not Murray plays tennis again is a secondary issue, though, with Judy extolling the virtue of focusing on the bigger picture.
“He’s a smart guy, he has a lot of interest in different things, he has a lot of options in life after tennis.
“But the most important thing is that he’s free from the pain he’s had for 20 months.
“He has a young family, you have to think about the quality of life for the rest of your life. Actually, that’s the most important thing.”
