Following hip surgery in late January, Andy Murray has announced that he’s pain free and he could be back on the courts at Wimbledon, at least maybe in doubles.
“It’s going well so far,” Murray said of the recovery. “I’m in no pain when I’m walking around.”
“Rehab is never loads of fun,” he said. “Because I’m seeing progress now and because I’m not in pain it’s sort of motivating me each day to doing it because I’m noticing that things are getting better. I don’t have to limp anymore and my hip feels good.”
Despite things going well so far, Murray says he doesn’t know if he can make it back to top level tennis.
“If it’s possible because I love tennis because that’s what I want to do,” he said. “It’s not the reason for having the operation done.
“I can’t say for certain that I’ll be able do it. The initial signs are quite good,” he said. “But I wanted to have the operation for life.
“I’m really happy to have it done and now I just have to wait and see how good my hip will get. I won’t know that for a good few months.”
Murray added he wasn’t sure about playing singles at Wimbledon, but Bob Bryan underwent a similar procedure and was able to return at the Australian Open in doubles after 5-and-half months, which is the same timeline between Murray’s operation and Wimbledon.
He closed by saying he’ll know what his future in pro tennis will be in 7-8 months.
