Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has returned to practice. The 26-year-old missed the last two months of the tennis season, including the London Finals, to recover from back surgery in September, but began practicing yesterday in his second home of Miami.
“Sun is shining, back on the courts, today is a good day… — at Crandon Park Tennis Center,” Murray wrote on Facebook.
However, Murray joked afterward that the workout left him in physical distress.

The Scot was expected to play in an exhibition in Barbados later this month, but according to reports from Britain the event has been canceled unlrelated to Murray’s health. While his January 2014 schedule is uncertain (Abu Dhabi, Doha), he remains intent on playing the Australian Open.
Murray finished 2013 ranked No. 4 with four titles including Wimbledon. His last match was leading Great Britain back into the Davis Cup World Group with two singles wins over Croatia in mid September.
