Andy Murray returns to tennis courts for first time since hip surgery

Andy Murray has returned to practice for the first time since undergoing a hip surgery two months back.

The British tennis star hasn’t played since crashing out in the first round of the Australian Open in January, where he lost to Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut in five sets.

According to Daily Mail, Murray trained at the Craig Allen Performance Tennis in Oxshott on Friday, hitting balls against a practice wall.

Although the 31-year-old hasn’t confirmed his date of return yet, he hinted at making a comeback at Wimbledon… only if he feels competitive though.

“If my hip allows me to do that without pain and I can still enjoy it then I’d like to try. But if I can’t, then I can’t, and I’ll be happy I’m not in pain every day,” he had said earlier this year.

This is not the first time Murray’s had to deal with his problematic hip.

Back in January 2018, the three-time Grand Slam champion pulled out of the Australian Open and considered going on rehab to take care of his hip.

Even as he downplayed surgery back then, Murray eventually went under the knife, only for the problem to come back again.
