Former World No.1 tennis player Andy Murray is all set to return to the court after undergoing hip resurfacing surgery. The 31-year-old British tennis player Murray who injured himself during the first round of Australia Open in January 2019 could participate in upcoming Wimbledon as he is now almost recovered from injury. Murray had lost in the beginning of Australia Open to 22nd seeded Roberto Bautista Agut with a score of with a score of 4–6 4–6 7–6(7–5) 7–6(7–4) 2–6 in five sets in four hours of action.
The three-time Grand Slam Champion has recently posted a video on Instagram in which he has been seen hitting the ball in a court while rallying with a wall and caption “It’s a start”. Though Murray was not sure about his participation earlier at the time of men’s single draw at Wimbledon but now in doubles tournament he could perform as it put less pressure on his hips. Wimbledon is going to commence from July 1 till July 14 in England.
Murray compared his situation with American tennis player and 23-time grand slam champion Bob Bryan who also suffered from a similar situation and returned to the game after five and a half months.
Earlier in January 2019, nostalgic Murray had announced that he would retire from professional tennis after few months or most probably after Wimbledon followed by the reason of worsening health issues and primarily hip injury.
The two-time Olympic champion defeated ace player Novak Djokovik in 2012 US open finals which made him the first British player to clinch US Open title since 1977. Murray has also become the first British man to clinch multiple Wimbledon men’s singles title after Fred Prey who won it in 1936.
