Andy Murray has been pictured back on a tennis court after apparently stepping up his comeback bid from hip surgery.
The former British and world number one appeared to have decided to retire before the Australian Open, tearfully announcing to the world that his recovery was failing to the point of hopelessness.
After a typically warrior-esque performance followed, despite defeat, against Roberto Bautista Agut in the first round, but he opted for hip resurfacing surgery believing it could squeeze a few more years of tennis out of his career.

He now seems to be edging closer towards that reality after being pictured hitting balls at the Oxshott Sports Club.
Murray initially claimed this year’s Wimbledon would be his last tournament, but whether that will actually be the case is very much unknown at the moment.
