Andy Murray was in immensely positive mood about his future after he marked his Wimbledon return with a win on Thursday.

The former British and world number one is back at the All-England club after a two-year absence due to injury.

Murray and partner Pierre-Hugues Herbert bean their men’s doubles campaign with an impressive 4-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-0 win over Ugo Humbert and Marius Copil, but it was an injury update people were really interested in afterwards.

“Every time I’m on the court now, it’s great,” said Murray, who underwent hip resurfacing surgery in January.

“I’m just playing tennis again. Pain-free, healthy. It’s nice. It’s what I have enjoyed doing since I was a kid.

“At times over the last few years, I was not getting any enjoyment out of it.

“The fun is back. Hopefully my hip will feel good for a while.”

Murray is also competing in the mixed doubles at Wimbledon, in which he will partner Grand Slam legend Serena Williams.
