‘I’m pain free and looking forward to coming back,’ says Andy Murray ahead of return
Andy Murray has given an update on his comeback, revealing that he is ‘pain free and looking forward to trying to get back on court’.
The former British and world number one has not played since his failed attempt at a comeback at the Australian Open, where he tearfully admitted he was likely to retire this summer.
However, he has since gone away and underwent hip resurfacing surgery in the hope of prolonging his career further.
The early signs are good too, with Murray announcing earlier this week he will play doubles at Queens with Feliciano Lopez.
“Training has gone really well over the last couple of months and I’ve been pretty much pain free,” Murray said in a video posted on his social media.
“Rehab’s gone really well so I’m looking forward to trying to getting back on the match court in a couple of weeks at Queen’s.”
