Andy Murray says that a return to singles competition is his main goal after declaring recent hip surgery as ‘life changing’.

The former British number one appeared to have made a tearful farewell to tennis at the Australian Open in January, but has since underwent a hip resurfacing procedure.

And, as his readies himself to make his return in the doubles at Queen’s this week, he has revealed more about his plans for the future.

“My goal is still to get back to singles. That is what I would like to do ultimately.” Murray told reporters.

“Six to eight weeks ago I was chatting with my team about the best way to get back onto the court again. We felt doubles would be a good option to test myself.

“I feel lucky, pretty relaxed. I didn’t expect to be in this position.

“I didn’t know how I would feel If I went and have the operation, but it has been brilliant. It has been life-changing for me from where I was.

“I’m looking forward to getting back out there. I don’t know what to expect. I am not putting any expectations on myself.”
