WATCH: Andy Murray steps up training with hit on hard courts
Andy Murray is getting ready for his assault on the final part of the 2019 season, whether that is in the singles or doubles, as he was seen practising on the hard courts of the National Tennis Centre.
Following hip resurfacing surgery he made his comeback in the men’s doubles at Queen’s Club in June and then stepped it up at Wimbledon as he competed in the men’s doubles and the mixed doubles.
However, he admitted that he is still to decide if he will make his return to singles ahead of the US Open, adding that it could take him several months to return to his best.
“That strength is not going to come back in just three or four months, it could take nine or 12 months,” he said.
“I need to get those muscles back to a certain level before I can go on a singles court and try to play best of five sets, otherwise I could do damage if the strength isn’t there. I’m happy to be pain-free and want to get my hip as good as it can be, then once it is strong again I can get back to competing.”
Murray, though, has done some work on the hard courts of the LTA in Roehampton.

But it remains a case of wait and see in terms of his schedule for the remainder of the year.
